Mangaluru: The New Mangalore Port has handled, for the first time, steel export cargo from JSW Steels to destinations in Egypt, Italy and Spain.

The vessel MV Minion Grace arrived at the port on August 29 to load 22,825 tonnes of steel cargo, including HR/CR coils, slabs, billets and TMT from JSW Steels, a release from the New Mangalore Port Trust (NMPT) here said.

Upon completion of the loading operations on the vessel that has a gross register tonnage (GRT) of 33,044 tonnes and Deadweight tonnage (DWT) of 57,000 tonnes, the ship, which was stationed at Berth No 3, sailed out on Friday.
