05 Apr 2020 / Haldia, India
All dry bulk vessel operations at Haldia Port remain suspended following the refusal of workers to perform their duties on Friday (3 April) after learning a supervisor had tested positive for COVID-19. However, mechanical loading of thermal coal vessels is continuing without interruption.
The port conducted a sanitisation drive at Berth No.13 and adjoining areas including mooring ropes, jetty and MHC at Haldia Dock Complex yesterday (4 April). Safety protective gear - such as masks, gloves and sanitisers - was also provided to the staff.
It is understood that authorities have appealed to staff, unions and stakeholders to return to work and resume operations which are essential to maintain supply lines. Even so, it is learnt that none were willing to return to work, so more days may be required for port operations to normalise.
