The Adani Group has placed orders for 32 cranes for the Vizhinjam seaport project. Eight of the cranes used for loading and unloading shipping containers fall in the 72-m category. The rest are smaller ones designed for the movement of containers inside the container yard. The Vizhinjam project is making news with work on the 3.1 km breakwater halted due to scarcity of rock. Heavy damage sustained by the dredgers during cyclone Ockhi in November had also affected the dredging of the channel approach to the proposed port.
