Adani Ports lays foundation stone for Rs 1,270-cr project

The Union Shipping Minister Nitin Gadkari laid foundation stone for the Rs 1,270-crore container terminal at Ennore Port, which will be developed by Adani Ports and SEZ Ltd.
On completion, it will be a 730-metre terminal, with 31.5 hectares of back area, and capable of handling 1.4 million TEUs annually. Speaking on the occasion, Gautam Adani, Chairman, Adani Group, said, “This new container terminal will be a world-class facility, comprising of the latest technology and equipment, and highly motivated workforce. The resultant operational efficiency is sure to provide great value to the southern region of India.”
“It will be South India’s first e-terminal and all-electric facility, offering paper-less operations and direct linkage with CFS and lines through web access and automatic gates, allowing seamless transit from CFS to the container yard,” the company claims.
This world-class terminal will initially have four units of 65-tonne capacity Post Panamax Twin Lift Quay Cranes, with three units of 65-tonne capacity Super Post Panamax Twin Lift Quay Cranes added in the second phase. The yard equipment will initially include twelve 41-tonne lift rubber tyred container gantry cranes, which will accommodate seven rows of containers, with nine more cranes added in the second phase.
“We will increase the depths to 20 metres, so that bigger vessels can call at Ennore’, said Nitin Gadkari, Minister for Transport and Rural Development in his address.
Adani Ports & SEZ signed the concession agreement to set up this container terminal in March 2014. The terminal, which will be constructed in two phases, is expected to be commissioned in March 2016.
