Paradip International Cargo Terminal Pvt. Ltd. (PICT) was awarded a contract for development of multipurpose berth to handle clean cargo including containers at Paradip port on BOT basis for 30 years.
The depth at the proposed berth will be -17.1 meters with a length of 450 meters, which will facilitate handling of Cape-sized vessels up to 1,25,000 DWT.
The rail siding for the berth for loading and unloading of both containers and clean cargo, will enhance the last mile connectivity for the end user by attracting rail-borne cargo.
The berth will be utilised for handling containerised traffic and clean cargo at Paradip port. Non-hazardous and dust-free cargoes including iron and steel products, aluminium ingots, pig iron, finished fertiliser, food grains and sugar (both raw and finished) will be handled effectively and efficiently in the multi-purpose berth.
