Mormugao Port Dredging Plans on Display
A public hearing on the Mormugao Port Trust (MPT) dredging plans is set to take place on February 21 at the MPT officers’ club in Sada, Vasco.

A deeper draught will allow the port to bring larger vessels in through the revised entrance channel to the berths.
The previous capital dredging was undertaken by the port in 2002 to deepen the entrance channel from 13.4 m to 14.4 m.
