This program, conducted by the China Harbour Engineering Company Ltd (CHEC), is set to ensure seamless movement of all types of vessels and ease their docking without any interruption.

In this regard, ‘Completion Ceremony for Mainte­nance Dredging Navigation Channel Project’ was held at the Gwadar Port this week. 

The project officially started on April 7, 2023.

Now, these areas are deep enough to accommodate large ships of more than 50,000 tons, further enhancing the throughput capacity of the port.
