Maritime Gateway - - News -

Gu­jarat-based Sanghi Ce­ments is set­ting up a float­ing ce­ment ter­mi­nal at Cochin Port as part of ex­pand­ing its coastal move­ments to South In­dian mar­kets. The float­ing ter­mi­nal is a ship with a bag­ging plant on board. It will have fa­cil­i­ties to mix the raw ma­te­rial in the ves­sel it­self and to take pow­dered ce­ment in bags af­ter the process. Float­ing ter­mi­nal will save the costs of set­ting up shore-based fa­cil­i­ties. It will en­sure an ad­di­tional three lakh tonnes vol­umes in the to­tal ce­ment through­put of Kochi Port. The port is in a po­si­tion to pro­vide berthing fa­cil­ity for the project, as its cargo han­dling ca­pac­ity now stands at 25.01 MTPA against the rated berth ca­pac­ity of 74.6 MTPA, AV Ra­mana, Deputy Chair­man of the port said.
