Kuantan Port Shore Power Supply Project

Kuantan Port aims to be one of the leading green ports in Malaysia with considerably environmentally friendly port operations and delivery to our customers. With a strategic plan called Kuantan Port Green Port Initiatives, guidelines have been developed for green project implementations in Kuantan Port, thus moving towards Green Port status by 2030.

The Kuantan Port Shore Power Supply project is one of the projects conducted under the Green Port Initiatives that supply shore power to our tug boats berthed at Kuantan Port. Yet another milestone!


The Deepest Vessel Entered Kuantan Port

Kuantan Port break another record by welcoming MV Heng Mao, the deepest vessel ever berthed in Kuantan Port with a 16.4-metre draught. With a capacity of 180,000 DWT, it is not only the deepest but also the heaviest vessel ever to call at Kuantan Port.

Another record-breaking vessel for Kuantan Port this year, and none of it would have been possible without the expertise of our pilots, led by Chief Pilot Captain Zaidi Abdul Zilah and not to forget the rest of the operation team.


The First Deepest Vessel with 15.4 Metres Draft Berthed in Kuantan Port

Kuantan Port welcomed MV True Corsair, the deepest vessel with a 15.4 metres draft ever berth in Kuantan Port.

It was not an easy task to keep the vertical distance between the lowest part of the ship’s hull and the seabed for only 2 metres gap. Hats off to Kuantan Port pilots and the rest of the operations team, as they have successfully brought the vessel into the Kuantan Port New Deep Water Terminal.

This may be the first time for the team to handle a vessel with such a draft, but this definitely would not be the last one. Kuantan Port recently revised the draft for the New Deep Water Terminal from 14.5 metres to 16.5 metres, which allows us to handle vessels up to 180,000 DWT.


Gotong-Royong Kemerdekaan 2022

Kampung Selamat is Kuantan Port’s closest neighbour, as the village is located just outside the port’s gate. The CSR event has successfully gathered nearly 100 volunteers from Kuantan Port, villagers of Kampung Selamat, port users, Lembaga Pelabuhan Kuantan, Kuantan City Council and Pasukan 2 Skuadron Pakar Pelabuhan.
