The Chief Minister will hold a meeting with Union Shipping Minister G K Vasan on the 21st of this month in New Delhi to discuss various issues including Vallarpadom dredging, shipping channel and Vizhinjam Port. The central government has sanctioned the development of a new port for the state and Kannur’s Azhikkal has been selected for it, he said.

Kerala plans its third major port at Azhikkal
Kerala plans to set up its third major port at Azhikkal, following the central government’s directive to coastal states to set up such facilities.

If the Azhikkal port development plan works out, the state would have three main ports — already operational Kochi Port Trust and the planned Vizhinjam port. Vallarpadam, which facilitates transhipment cargo, is part of the Kochi Port Trust.

Major ports are central government controlled ports, administrated as trusts, except for Ennore port, which is run as a company.

“The Central government had asked coastal states to open another major port in the state. We have proposed Azhikkal port to be developed as a major one,” said Oommen Chandy, Kerala chief minister, on the sidelines of CII World Economic Forum-Indian Economic Summit here on Monday.

Azhikkal is in the Kannur district, around 200 km from Vallarpadam.

For a central govt project that is not the main concern now. They are building more ports to grow our economy and compete with countries like China you know. They can't build ports in UP or Bihar. Coastal states will be natural choice. This is a long term investment.

But at first it has to take off. There are lot of hurdles ahead. Paaras can come from inside and outside.

They aren't seeking that either. Last time when it was rejected our Trivandrum forumers were rejoicing. They want it under state control. State govt also wants it to be under their control.

Azhikkal is like an orphan with almost zero development now. So we don't care who ever takes it. Enthenkilum okke nadanna mathi.

Special purpose vehicle planned to develop Kerala’s Azhikkal port
Quote:
The formation of a special purpose vehicle (SPV) is one of the proposals that have come up for the development of Azhikkal port in Kannur.

The North Malabar Chamber of Commerce (NMCC) has taken the initiative to look into the possibility of floating of the SPV and a consortium for raising funds for the implementation of the long-delayed port development project.

A meeting of traders, industrialists and port department officials, organised by NMCC, also decided to hold an elaborate session of the various stake-holders to chart a road map for taking the project forward.

The development project had gained momentum a few months ago with Mundra Port and SEZ Ltd submitting a Rs 3,000-crore bid in response to a tender floated by the Ports Department.

It was at a time when the State Government was actively considering the establishment of a coal-based thermal plant at nearby Cheemeni.

But, the bidder withdrew from the scene when the Government later abandoned the thermal project proposal.

PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP MODE

Subsequently, the department has asked Deloitte India Ltd to revise the project report before going in for another round of tendering process for identifying a partner to develop the port through public-private partnership (PPP) mode.

The new proposal by NMCC has come as an alternative option for the development of the port.

The chamber will explore the possibility of bringing in INKEL Ltd, a public-private enterprise formed by the Government, to be a part of the project.

INKEL Ltd, incidentally, has shown interest in the development of Beypore port in Kozhikode.

Apart from the development of port, there is also a proposal for setting up a ship-repairing facility at Azhikkal.

A team from Cochin Shipyard had visited the site the other day to study the feasibility of the proposal.

Wait and see

I think mathrubhumi misquoted minister's statement, because CSL is yet to submit the report and hence no decision cannot be taken in this regard

But Aslesh, this kind of news are coming in newspapers for the last 10 years. But our Governments are not doing anything even though Laksha dweep administrators interested in this port. One or two years back they have visited Kollam port also. But Kerala govt. has not done anything.

They visited Beypore too. I think they are visiting all the ports in random. Vere paniyonnum illallo.

Rs.418-crore development work for Azhikkal port


Ports and Excise Minister K. Babu has said that an additional 10 acres of land will be acquired for the development of the Azhikkal port where developmental works estimated at Rs.418 crore will be carried out.

Speaking to reporters during his visit to the port on Monday, Mr. Babu said a meeting attended by the Ports Secretary, Law Secretary and the Ports Director would be held in the capital on January 12 to discuss the recommendations of the consultant for the port's development. He said that Deloitte India Ltd., the consultant, had submitted its report on the works estimated at Rs.418 crore.

It may be recalled that the State government had asked Deloitte India Ltd. to submit a revised detailed feasibility report (DFR) on the development of the Azhikkal port in the wake of the reluctance of the Mundra Port and SEZ Ltd., the lone bidder to the global tender floated for attracting private investment for the port development. The company, which was interested in the coal-based thermal project proposed at Cheemeni in Kasaragod, backed out when the State government decided to abandon the coal-based project.

RETENDERING

The Minister said that a decision on the retendering procedures would be taken at the meeting in the capital. An elaborate seminar on the development of the port would be held here prior to the launching of the retendering process, he said adding that the presence of Chamber of Commerce representatives in the region and in Mysore would be ensured at the seminar. The people's representatives in the region would also be participating in the seminar.

The Minister said 10 acres were being acquired additionally because of the paucity of land required for the port's development. He also said the government had earmarked Rs.26 lakh for the development of the road to the port.

CHANNEL DEPTH

Referring to the talks with delegates from Lakshadweep on the proposal for increasing the depth of the ship channel and the mouth, the Minister said the dredging vessel Sindhuraj of the Kerala State Maritime Development Corporation would start the work soon.

Mr. Babu said the government would take all steps for the development of the port. Vessel operators and contractors in Lakshadweep had conveyed that the port would be a favourite destination of their vessels if dredging had been done in the basin to increase the depth of the channel and the mouth. They were of the view that more cargo operators would turn up to Azhikkal if the channel had a minimum 4.5-metre depth for the safe navigation of vessels.

MLAs K.M. Shaji and T.V. Rajesh and Ports Director Jacob Thomas were among those who accompanied the Minister during his visit to the port.

Ship building facility could have been a major push to the development of whole Malabar.....but it seems no one is listening...
All that ministers and MPs from Malabar is sleeping or dancing with the tunes of anti malabar lobby...
