Guwahati: The longest vessel ever MV Ram Prasad Bismil to sail on mighty Brahmaputra at Pandu port

The Ministry of Ports, Shipping, and Waterways achieved a landmark when the MV Ram Prasad Bismil became the longest vessel ever to sail on the mighty Brahmaputra. The 90 meters long flotilla is 26 meters wide, loaded with a draft of 2.1 meters.

With this, it successfully completed the aspiring pilot run of heavy cargo movement from Haldia Dock in Kolkata after it anchored at Pandu port in Guwahati today. The vessel along with two barges – DB Kalpana Chawla and DB APJ Abdul Kalam – was flagged off from the Syama Prasad Mookerjee Port in Haldia.

Responding to this development, the Union Minister Sarbananda Sonowal said that the vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi is to energize the Ashtalakshmi potential of the Northeast to power the growth engine of India.

Mr. Sonowal said that under his vision of ‘Transformation through Transportation,’ his ministry worked tirelessly to rejuvenate water transport in the North East. The Union Minister said that this is not only the cheapest and ecologically most adapted mode of transportation, it also allows the long awaited connection for the business of North East through the marine network with the rest of the world.
