Valued at R1.4-billion, the port's tug building programme is the largest single contract TNPA has ever awarded to a South African company for the building of harbour craft, and was awarded to Durban-based Southern African Shipyards, which also built TNPA's previous order of 12 tugs.

Competition criteria was that the name should be a single, inspiring one, in keeping with the port's theme of naming their vessels after South African birds.

The Business Continuity Plan (BCP) will remain in place until TNPA has restored normality at the Port of Durban.

TNPA's marine service team and tugboats were called to action to help move the 6,880 teu MSC Ines, which had broken loose from its moorings, become grounded on a sandbank and was blocking the channel. "TNPA has also managed to contain containers that had blown into the bay".

Transnet National Ports Authority said that all vessel movements have been suspended in the Port of Durban due to inclement weather. Unfortunately so far two people, including one policeman, are reported to have died elsewhere in the city.

TNPA Chief Executive Shulami Qalinge said: "We are extremely appreciative of the excellent collaboration between our TNPA marine teams and key stakeholders who acted quickly and efficiently".
