Sri Lanka’s Trincomalee port in the North East coast of the island has started night operations with equipment granted by the government of Japan, the Ministry of Ports and Aviation said.
Due to the lack of night navigation facilities, vessels calling at the port had to anchoring at the outer harbhour overnight and only enter in the daytime.
“Earlier we didn’t have a facility in the Trincomalee Port for night operations, so now we will start the night navigation operations”. Viraj Abeysinghe, spokesman for the Ministry of Ports said.
Japan had handed over a required equipment in a project that concluded on April 17.
Under a one-billion-yen grant aid project, Japan had provided a vessel traffic management system, radar, lighthouse equipment, 16 navigation buoys, two mooring buoys, two 400kV generators, 14 fire pumps and a pilot vessel.
Trincomalee has one of the finest natural harbors in the world.
