Russian flag carrier vessel ‘MV Yamal Orlan’ on Tuesday anchored at Mongla sea port with consignment of machinery products for the under-construction Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant (RNPP).
The ship anchored at the Jetty No. 8 of the port with 2,522 metric tons of machineries.
Chairman of Mongla Port Authority Rear Admiral Mir Ershad Ali said all goods imported for mega projects in the country are being cleared through the Mongla port on special priority.
“As the consignment is being released quickly with modern methods and skilled manpower, traders are now more interested to use this port due to modern facilities and sincerity of the port authorities,” he said.
Conveyor Shipping Agent’s operations manager Sadhan Kumar Chakraborty said activities for unloading of the goods have started already.
“Within three days, all equipment will be delivered to the RNPP project site at Rooppur, Ishwardi, Pabna by road,” he said.
Earlier, the ship left Novorossiysk port in Russia for Mongla with goods on March 28.
