Mumbai/Dubai: DP World further strengthened its relationship with India’s premier gateway port, Jawaharlal Nehru Port, on Tuesday with the ceremonial presentation and formal acceptance of the Letter of Award for the 330-metre new terminal project by DP World Chairman Sultan Ahmad Bin Sulayem and port chairman L Radhakrishnan.

The ceremony was also attended by other senior members of the Jawaharlal Nehru Port Authority and DP World.

Once constructed, the new terminal will add 800,000 TEUs (twenty foot equivalent container units) of container capacity to the port and help ease congestion, as the port is currently operating beyond capacity. The terminal is expected to commence operations in 2015.
