M.V.WISDOM Ship for the first time at Kakinada Deep Water Port
It is to inform that, in Andhra Pradesh, first time Kakinada Deep Water Port received one capsize vessel on 17.08.2018 and name is M.V.WISDOM with Cargo of pet coke quantity 1,04,000 Mt. Capesize vessels are the largest dry cargo vessels. Vessels in this class are bulk carriers, usually transporting coal, ore and other commodity raw materials.
The average size of a capesize bulker is around 156,000 DWT, although larger ships (normally dedicated to ore transportation) have been built, up to 400,000 DWT. The large dimensions and deep drafts of such vessels mean that only the largest deep- water terminals can accommodate them. Subcategories of capesize vessels include very large ore carriers (VLOC) and very large bulk carriers (VLBC) of above 200,000 DWT. These vessels are mainly designed to carry iron ore.
As on date, all the Minor Ports in Andhra Pradesh are ready to handle the cape size vessels.
