Development of Greenfield Port at Vadhvan, Maharashtra

Description

Maharashtra has only two major ports i.e. Mumbai and Jawaharlal Nehru Port (JNPT) and Mumbai Port are constrained in the evacuation of cargo for the past several decades due to the development of the city around it as well as due to limited depths in the harbour which allows only up to 15 mtrs draft ships to berth. The Arabian coast at Vadhavan towards the north of Mumbai is most suitable and ideal for the development of a new port where natural a depth of 20 Meters is available at a distance of about 4 ½ nautical miles. The location is about 12 Km from the National Railway grid and about 35 Km from NH8. The JNPT has proposed to develop Vadhavan Port along with the participation of Govt of Maharashtra (Maharashtra Maritime Board) and an MOU was signed on 5th June 2015 to set up a new port at Vadhavan as a Major Port to be notified under the Indian Ports Act 1908 by Government of India. This port will be jointly implemented by JNPT and Maharashtra Maritime Board with a shareholding of 74% and 26% respectively. The port will be developed based on Landlord Port model.

Benefits of the Project

Development of a new major port at the West coast of India, with a draft of 18 Meters, for handling all cargos.

Status
  • In principle approved for seething up of Greenfield Port project in Vadhavan in Feb 2020.
  • The notification of Vadhavan Port as major port is published in the official Gazetted of GOI on 19/02/2020.

Construction of Coastal Berth

Description

To give momentum to coastal shipping, the Govt of India has decided to have coastal vessel berth every major port which is to be located in the shallower portion where large International ships cannot come, to accommodate the coastal vessel wherein the cargo handling shall be free from custom and immigration formalities. Responding to this requirement, JNPT has taken up the project of ‘Coastal Berth’.

Construction of road for ITRHO

Description

Four of the five container terminals in Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) viz. JNPCT, NSICT, GTICT & BMCT have their own rail sidings where Indian Railways provides rail services for the purpose of transferring inbound and outbound containers. The trains are operated by CONCOR (Container Corporation of India) and few Private Train Operators.

A Memorandum of Understanding dated 15th February 2007 was entered into between the then operational terminals viz. Jawaharlal Nehru Port Container Terminal(JNPCT), Nhava Sheva International Container Terminal (NSICT) and Gateway Terminals India (GTI) for the purpose of establishing a commercial and operational relationship for transfer of rail containers between the said terminals.

The NSIGT (Nhava Sheva International Gateway Terminal) owned by DP World which commenced operations in July 2016 does not have any railway track in its terminal and relies on the other terminals for the transfer of its containers.

The BMCT with a set of own rail lines commenced operations from February 2018. Thus, there was a need to bring both NSIGT & BMCT which were not a part of the initial ITRHO MOU signed in 2007 into a commercial and operational relationship with the other three terminals.

Benefits of the Project

A new ITRHO agreement was signed between all the five terminals which came into effect from 1st August, 2019 for the following objectives:

  • a) To maximize train, track productivity, efficiency and to reduce dwell time of import Inland container depot (ICD) boxes to bare minimum.
  • b) To treat all trains placed on their line as dedicated trains and complete the train handling operation within shortest possible time.
  • c) Better utilization of resources to protect terminal revenue against the investment on infrastructure.

Overall the Trade at JN Port will be immensely benefitted upon the commencement of this new ITRHO route as it would ensure timely connection of EXIM rail and transhipment containers to vessels and trains between terminals. In addition the rail handling efficiency will be further enhanced resulting in increase in the rail traffic at JN Port.

Status

Work is completed and road is opened to traffic on 26.03.2021.
