Adani, MMC to build port in Malaysia

Two Malaysian and one Indian company are considering the construction of a container port and “maritime city” 30km southwest of Kuala Lumpur.

Gautam Adani-led Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone Ltd. (APSEZ) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Malaysia-based MMC Port Holdings Sdn Bhd, a wholly-owned unit of MMC Corporation Berhad (MMC), to set up a greenfield multi-purpose container handling port at Carey Island in Malaysia’s Selangor state, about 50 kms southwest of capital Kuala Lumpur.

“Malaysia is very strategic to APSEZ’s global strategy and with straits of Malacca being a global shipping route, it helps us to drive our global transhipment strategy further, said Karan Adani, CEO, APSEZ on the development.

“With Vizhinjam Port on one side and Carey Island Port on the other, we will be able to give transhipment solutions to global shipping lines.” said Mr. Karan Adani.
