Please be informed that yesterday (10/6/2015), GMB Jamnagar port officer had called a meeting at his office to inform port users regarding revised draft and LOA at GSFC Jetty, Sikka.
Recently, GSFC had arranged dredging of their jetty, turning circle and channel and increased the draft for the movement of bigger size vessels. In the meeting, GSFC officials declared present permitted maximum draft at GSFC Jetty at Sikka will be 10.5 mtrs and vessels with LOA 190 can be berthed (earlier it was 8 mtrs draft and maximum permitted LOA was 165).
