Mostafa Nakhaei, the managing director of the
National Chabahar Oil Products Distribution Company, said, “In line with the
Supreme Leader’s instructions regarding the economy of resilience, as well as
promoting the port’s operational capacity, the first tanker with 50 million
liters of gasoil storage capacity has been berthed at Jetty 5 of Bandar Martyr
Beheshti of Chabahar Port.”
He said the infrastructure required promotion of
the unloading system of the port from a 12-inch line at Jetty 2 to two 16-inch
lines at Jetty 5 of the port.
The draft of Jetty 2 did not allow large vessels to
berth at the port but Jetty 5 enjoys sufficient draft for berthing large
vessels, he added.
