The 1,046-foot Seletar called on the Nhava Sheva International Container Terminal, a DP World facility, this week.
Built in 2007, the Singapore-flag ship weighs 85,250 tons and has a nominal capacity of 6,478 20-foot equivalent units.
“Maersk Line's decision to bring the Maersk Seletar to DP World Nhava Sheva reflects the confidence of the global shipping lines in the capabilities and performance we have demonstrated at the JN Port," NSICT said.
Nhava Sheva has three terminals, including the state-owned Jawaharlal Nehru Container Terminal and the Gateway Terminals operated by APM Terminals. The port authority in September awarded PSA International a $1.5 billion contract to build a fourth container terminal at the West Coast hub.
