JSI Alliance K-Class Heavy Lift Vessel Fairmaster Gets Thumbs-Up For Indira Dock from Mumbai Port Authority

Thanks to great effort from the Harbour Master and team at the Mumbai Port Authority, the JSI Alliance heavy lift K-class vessel Fairmaster from the Jumbo Maritime fleet is now permitted to enter the lock leading to the Indira Dock in Mumbai.

With this change, K-class size vessels can now load/unload cargoes during monsoon season in the more sheltered waters of Mumbai and the JSI Alliance can continue to take care of their client’s cargoes whatever the weather.

 

 

As seen from the images, it’s a tight fit and the passage understandably needs to take place during daylight hours. The entrance lock is

  • 228.6m long
  • 30.5ms wide.

HLV Fairmaster has a beam overall (hull)/width of 27.74m making it just the right fit.

 

 

A “Jumbo” thank you to the team at Mumbai Port Authority for showing flexibility and some creative thinking to make this work safely and reliably.
