Mundra Port to charge less for LNG powered vessels

The Adani Group owned Mundra Port will offer a 50% discount on Port related charges to ships running on liquefied natural gas (LNG). India has been aggressively initiating strategies to cut emissions under its green ports plan. LNG fueled ships are said to emit significantly less CO2 and other forms of pollutants compared with conventional shipping fuel.
“Port will offer 50% discount on Port Dues, Pilotage and Berth hire charges,” the notice to shippers, issued by Adani Ports and SEZ Ltd, said.
The discount scheme will be functional for a period of six months from August 1 and will apply to vessels with dual fuel engines that use LNG as a primary fuel.However, the waiver on port charges would not apply for vessels carrying LNG cargo and using LNG fuel, it said.
