Adani Ports and Spe­cial Eco­nomic Zone Lim­ited


Maritime Gateway - - Lifetime Achievement Award -

When we think of In­dia’s largest port-based com­pany and the coun­try’s largest port­based man­u­fac­tur­ing hub, the first name that comes to our mind is Adani Ports and Spe­cial Eco­nomic Zone Lim­ited. Post­ing an as­tound­ing growth of 16 per cent Y-O-Y in FY201617 and a record through­put around 3.5 mil­lion teus APSEZ stood out in the com­pe­ti­tion and has emerged as the proud win­ner of the Con­tainer Port of the Year Award. APSEZ has an in­stalled ca­pac­ity of 5.1 mil­lion teus which in­cludes ca­pac­ity ad­di­tion of 800,000 teus in FY 2016-17. It has a yard area of 100 hectares and com­prises of all ter­mi­nals in the port. The port has es­tab­lished amaz­ing ef­fi­ciency in­di­ca­tors with a ca­pac­ity util­i­sa­tion of 80 per cent. Highly stream­lined op­er­a­tions have main­tained the av­er­age turn­around time at 0.85 days, while the av­er­age pre-berthing de­ten­tion time is 8.17 hours. High-end in­fra­struc­ture used at the port has marked the av­er­age out­put per ship berth day at 2,261 teus, while the growth in av­er­age out­put per ship berth day on a Y-O-Y ba­sis in FY2016-17 over FY 2015-16 is 2 per cent (in mil­lion tonnes). With 28.79 moves per hour, the av­er­age crane pro­duc­tiv­ity is among the best in the coun­try and has en­sured quick clear­ance of cargo. The port has fur­ther up­graded its in­fra­struc­ture to keep up its per­for­mance with the ad­di­tion of 3 Quay Cranes at AICTPL, 4 Quay Cranes at ACMTPL, 9 RTGS at AICTPL, 12 RTGS at ACMTPL and 3 RMGCS at the rail head. Two berths at ACMTPL have been added to ac­co­mo­date the grow­ing traf­fic.
