Mor­mu­gao Port berth mod­erni­sa­tion

Maritime Gateway - - News -

The Goa Coastal Zone Man­age­ment Au­thor­ity (GCZMA) has di­rected the South West Port Ltd (SWPL) to re­vise En­vi­ron­men­tal Im­pact As­sess­ment re­port for pro­posed en­hance­ment of the ca­pac­ity and mod­erni­sa­tion of berth 5A-6A of Mor­mu­gao Port. As the de­mand for coal and other prod­ucts is in­creas­ing at JSW steel plant in Vi­jayana­gar, SWPL has pro­posed to de­ploy highly-mech­a­nised and ef­fi­cient en­vi­ron­ment­friendly ma­te­rial han­dling sys­tem at both the berths to in­crease the cargo-han­dling ca­pac­ity to meet the de­mand. The im­ple­men­ta­tion of the said project will lead to in­crease in port ef­fi­ciency, bet­ter util­i­sa­tion of ex­ist­ing re­sources and over­all net re­duc­tion in pol­lu­tion level due to retrofitting of ma­te­rial han­dling sys­tems with lat­est dust en­trap­ment sys­tems and bar­ri­ers.
