Land alloted for Chennai Port at Tiruvottiyur

Quote:
The Chennai Corporation Council on Tuesday passed a total of 53 resolutions, including one to lease out land at Tiruvottiyur to the Chennai Port Trust for setting up a container trailer parking lot.

The parking lot is one of the long pending demands of over 3,000 trailer drivers and cleaners who off-load containers at the port. Following a strike by drivers and cleaners on Monday, the Port Trust convened a meeting of representatives of various associations on Tuesday and promised to look into their 18-point charter of demands.

S.R. Raja, secretary of Trailer Owners Association, who participated in the meeting, said the drivers had wanted drinking water facilities inside the port and patch work on a bridge near the zero gate, which the port authorities had promised to expedite.

The Mayor announced that the Chennai Corporation Commissioner D. Karthikeyan would ink a pact in a day or two to lease the land to the Port Trust. He said the process was being speeded up, taking into consideration the urgency of the matter and need to reduce accidents in north Chennai.

Among the resolutions passed was one to impart Spoken English language training to teachers of the city schools. The training would be given in batches of 50 and would Rs. 800 per person.

The Council also passed a resolution to recruit personnel to control the pig menace in the city. It will also be levying fines for littering on the streets.

DHL launches Japan to India LCL Direct Box services

http://postandparcel.info/48552/news...-box-services/

DHL Global Forwarding has launched five new weekly less-than-container load ocean freight services between India and Japan.

Deutsche Post DHL’s air and sea freight division said the new services connect major sea ports in Japan directly to Chennai in southern India and New Delhi in northern India, without the need for reshipment.

Transit time could be cut between the two Asian countries by as much as six days compared to other ocean freight services, the company said.

DHL said the once-a-week “LCL Direct Box” services should also mean cheaper shipping, less chance of damage and cuts in carbon emissions for shipments of up to 3.25%.

From today (26 June) direct LCL services launch from Tokyo to New Delhi, offering a transit time of 26 days, along with a 28-day route from Nagoya to New Delhi, a 27-day route from Kobe to New Delhi, Tokyo to Chennai in 20 days and Kobe to Chennai in 21 days.

The services come with DHL Track & Trace and other visibility tools. Previously, DHL’s LCL services from Japan to India were routed via Hong Kong.

Mark Slade, the president and representative director of DHL Global Forwarding Japan, said his company was expecting growth in the Japan to India trade lane, suggesting the new LCL services would be of particular interest to customers in the automobile, electronics and high-tech sectors.

Asia Pacific

The new LCL services add Chennai and New Delhi to DHL’s LCL Direct Box service, which already connects to Los Angeles, Chicago, Hamburg, Milan, Shanghai, Busan and Bangkok.

The company said it is continuing improving its LCL services within the Asian region, last year expanding its northern Asia services in China, South Korea and Taiwan, and earlier this year launching a direct Japan to Bangkok service.

Rench Leow, vice president of ocean freight and head of LCL management at DHL Global Forwarding Asia Pacific, said connecting key markets was an important part of his company’s strategy to become a preferred LCL carrier in the Asia Pacific region.

“India is one of the major economies in Asia and the country has an expanding effect on the world stage,” he said. “We’re very excited to offer customers to and from this huge market a wider opportunity to enjoy our state-of-the-art products and services.”

Chennai port gets vessel traffic management system

Quote:
High tech surveillance systems will now continuously monitor ships that are entering the Chennai waters.

A vessel traffic management system has been installed at the Chennai port, which will increase the efficiency of surveillance and tracking vessel movement in the port limits.

To begin with, the surveillance is for nearly 2 km but can be extended to 48 nautical miles with advanced software.

The Union Minister, Mr G.K. Vasan, who inaugurated the new system, said that there were a couple of other major ports that have implemented the system. All the major ports will have such high tech system in place. “We need to keep our boundaries secure,” he told newspersons later.

'Black box'

The vessel traffic management system is similar to a ‘black box’ in an aircraft. It has auto identification system, radar system and communication links enabling operators to manage the vessel traffic, monitor the environment and support port and harbour resources.

So far the port has been monitoring the traffic movement of ships by contracts through VHF, he said.

Larsen & Toubro awaits customs approval for Rs 4,700 crore Kattupalli port project
http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/...w/14857660.cms

Engineering major Larsen & Toubro is ready to commission its Rs 4,700 crore shipyard-cum-port complex at Kattupalli near Chennai, but is facing a roadblock as the Central Board of Excise and Customs has not granted it custom clearing facilities at the port.

The port, ready since May, has been granted permission to be a trans-shipment facility, which means it can only unload goods in containers for trans-shipment and load goods trans-shipped in containers for export. The port would have to send containers to other ports for custom clearance, which would increase the cost and time of shipment. The greenfield port needs to set up a custom clearing office, which senior customs officials said is difficult currently given a severe shortage of manpower.

"Our port is fully ready along with the buildings for customs operations. The department has given us approval to operate as a trans-shipment facility until the time they can provide us officials for clearing at the port," K Venkatesh, CEO of L&T Infrastructure Development Projects, told ET.

"We are waiting for final approval from state government to commission the port. We have assurance from the customs that the clearing office would be manned over the next two-three month," Venkatesh said.

While L&T is in talks with government agencies to expedite setting up of customs clearing at the port, it is also seeking permission to use Container Freight Stations (CFS) attached to the Chennai Port to clear containers landing at Kattupalli.

Jane K Nathaniel, Commissioner Customs (imports), Chennai, told ET: "There are 29 CFS attached to Chennai Port. L&T has requested for trans-shipment facility to the CFS attached to Chennai Port. As Kattupalli Port and Chennai Port are different customs stations, the issue of whether a CFS attached to Chennai Port can also service Kattupalli Port is under examination."

Katupalli port, promoted by L&T along with Tamil Nadu Industrial Development Corporation, is expected to be an alternative to the congested Chennai Port. Industry executives said that shipping companies and agents would continue to use the Chennai Port discouraged by the lack of custom clearance facilities at the Katupalli port.

Eredene may exit Ennore box terminal project if unable to raise loan funds

http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/...ue&ref=wl_home

Quote:
The Ennore Container Terminal project may be heading for a rebidding. The Bay of Bengal Gateway Terminal, the consortium that won the bid for the Rs 1,300-crore project, may forfeit the concession due to delay in getting debt funding, said Eredene, a consortium partner.

The London-based Eredene is part of an international consortium led by Spain’s biggest port terminal operator Grup Marítim TCB. The consortium was awarded the build-operate-transfer project in June 2009 for 30 years.

DEBT FUNDING

The consortium is continuing its efforts to secure debt funding. However, there is no guarantee that acceptable terms will be agreed with State Bank of India. If viable debt funding cannot be obtained, then the consortium may forfeit the concession, Eredene said in a statement today.

“Protracted negotiations continue to secure debt funding for the Ennore project. However, there is no guarantee that the consortium will be able to agree to acceptable financial terms with State Bank of India, particularly in the light of the negative change in the global and Indian funding environment,” Eredene said.

Ennore Port Ltd, the concession awarding authority, had given Bay of Bengal Gateway time until April 30 to finalisedebt funding.................

Thailand is lobbying heavily with visiting Myanmmar's president for the Port which could cut short maritime travel to chennai by Half (from 6 days to 3 Days) by avoiding mallaika straits . Thai government feels this route has got huge trading potential. They have already formed SPV with thai company. I dont know what our Indian government is doing?

Ennore LPG terminal on stream

Quote:
Liquefied petroleum gas bottling plants of oil marketing companies in several parts of the southern region can look forward to improved and timely availability of the product with a 1.2 million tonne LPG terminal near Chennai going on stream.

A project of IndianOil Petronas Pvt. Ltd. (IPPL), a joint venture of Indian Oil Corporation and the Malaysian government-owned Petronas, the terminal would be a crucial facility to help maintain cylinder supplies to millions of households and commercial establishments in Tamil Nadu, Puducherry and parts of Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka.

“Our role would be safekeeping, blending and terminalling facilities for the product ordered by the oil companies,” IPPL Chief Executive Officer Mrinal Roy said, adding that the terminal received the first parcel of LPG when a very large gas carrier called at Ennore port recently. The vesselbrought a consignment of 44,000 tonnes ordered by IOC from Qatar. While a part of the propane and butane was meant for the terminal in Ennore, the rest was for Haldia, he said. “On receiving the consignment, we purged the pipelines and tanks with vapour and then started cooling them to receive the products which come and get stored under refrigerated conditions,” S. Chandrababu, DGM-Project (I/C) of IPPL, said recently.

Although the terminal was ready for commissioning by March, it could not be operated as a clearance from the Union Ministry of Environment was awaited. On getting the CRZ (coastal regulation zone) clearance, which was required for a portion of pipelines connecting the jetty at the port and the terminal, IPPL got the consent to operate from the Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board.

The Rs.500-crore terminal would be significant for Tamil Nadu whose bulk LPG requirement is around 1.2 million tonnes annually, whereas the refineries of Chennai Petroleum Corporation Ltdproduce only 0.4 million tonnes of the fuel. Apart from providing services to the oil companies , IPPL, according to Mr. Roy, would source LPG for supplying to industrial units and retailing cylinders to commercial establishments. The company would also be setting up LPG dispensing stations for automobilesin Tamil Nadu.

“Work is in progress on our Propel brand ALDS in Tambaram and Anna Salai in Chennai. We are hopeful of commissioning the Tambaram facility by August 15,” he said, adding that the company would be establishing such facilities in Kancheepuram, Nagercoil and Kanyakumari. Besides Tamil Nadu, it was in the process of setting up more ALDS in Karnataka. On the industrial consumers, he said the company would supply bulk LPG to car manufacturers and furnaces. It also proposed to get into retailing of 450 kg cylinders to commercial establishments.

Congrats L&T. It has constructed this port in record time without much fanfare. It has already roped in a renowned port operator ICTSI for Container Terminal.

Wishing L&T Team and Indian Port Sector all the best!
