NGC to look at Mundra port in ‘Megastructures’ episode

MUMBAI: Continuing its legacy of showcasing the biggest structures from around the world, ‘Megastructures’ on National Geographic Channel (NGC) is back with a new episode which will look at India’s biggest private port Mundra.

The show captures the enormity and magnificence of the Mundra port along with the seamless work done by the employees, day in and day out. The show will air on 19 July at 7 pm.

Boasting the largest SEZ in the country, Mundra caters for the large northern hinterland. The port is faced with unthinkable engineering challenges everyday that are overcome through state-of-the-art, high-speed and safe mechanised material handling and storage. The port is a modern marvel and through this special episode viewers will witness how mega-dreams became megastructures.

NGC Networks and Fox International Channels VP programming, content Swati Mohan said, “Over the past many years, through our global franchise of ‘Megastructures’, we have showcased inner workings of some of the most celebrated man-made structures across the world. India currently hosts quite a few megastructures and the Adani Port is a great example of a functional Megastructure in the country. This one-hour special documentary will bring to light the scale of operations, the challenges and the attention to detail that goes into successfully managing this port that never sleeps. Set on one of the most critical days for any international port, the film will take viewers through how the entire team carefully navigates to overcome the impossible to make all ends meet.”

Commenting on the show, a spokesperson from the Adani group said, “It is a pleasure to be associated with National Geographic Channel for this special episode. We are proud of the work that our teams do on a daily basis to ensure smooth functioning of India’s number one commercial port at Mundra and no other channel could have showcased it better. ‘Megastructures’ is a renowned series and has featured great structures from around the world and we are happy to be part of it. We are sure the Indian viewers will be thrilled and proud to see the sheer scale of the port.”
