关丹港 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.



关丹港 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.



After ten months of upgrading and refurbishing works, the 关丹港 historic structure was relaunched by the General Manager of Kuantan Port Authority, YH Dato’ Khairul Anuar Bin Abdul Rahman, together with Group Divisional Director, Logistics & Support Business of FGV Holdings Berhad, Mr Azman Ahmad and Chief Executive Officer of Kuantan Port, Mr Vino Kumar Selvabalakrishnan.

The berth was refurbished and renewed after more than 40 years of its operational period since 1981. It was a collaboration between Kuantan Port and FGV Holdings aiming to enhance the safety measures of the workers handling vessels at the berth.

Vino mentioned, “With the upgraded berth structure of more than RM12 million of investment by Kuantan Port and FGV, we hope that this important palm oil structure will continue to serve our clients for another 30 to 40 years from now. To achieve such projection pivotal regular maintenance and monitoring is essential to be done from time to time.”

As a port operator on the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia, Kuantan Port is committed to supporting and generating the national economy from this palm oil terminal. This region has a high potential to pioneer the logistics and port infrastructure apart from creating realistic investments and positively contributing to the community on the east coast.
