PortandTerminal.com, August 6, 2020

MUMBAI – Three giant cranes at Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust collapsed in severe weather at India’s largest container port on the outskirts of Mumbai due to strong winds and rain on Wednesday.

The operations at the port were affected and one cargo vessel began to drift away after coming free from its lines and needed to be secured by a tug.

The port is still assessing the impact of the collapse on the operations, its chairman, Sanjay Sethi, told Reuters. Some sheds at the port also sustained damage and there was some flooding. There were no injuries.
