A Night Navigation system has been launched at Port Qasim for the large vessels for the very first time ever in the history of Pakistan.
The introduction of the system is one of the most significant achievements so far done by the ministry and that too in just the span of 5 months.
Mr. Ali Haider Zaidi—the Maritime Affairs federal minister said that he is thankful to God and then to his team that has made this achievable.
Previously, before the launch of the system the port was being used only in the morning time for getting the ships docked.
This introduction would not only help in continuing operations at the port 24/7 however it would also prove advantageous for Pakistan as it would help in improving the economy.
The minister further added that the launch indicates that hard work, honesty and smartness could bring in revolutionary changes even in a span of a period that is just 5 months.
Previously, it was in the news that the Pakistan International Bulk Terminal Limited (PIBTL) along with the JS Petroleum is all ready to establish an LPG import facility at Port Qasim.
It was planned by both the bodies that the facility would be built before next winters since LPG is the major fuel which is used by the locals who do not get gas because of the its shortage or reduction in the gas pipeline facility during winters.
