Post iron ore export ban, port eyes maize cargo

Quote:
Anil Urs

Hubli, Nov 22

The New Mangalore Port Trust (NMPT), which has been severely affected by ban on iron ore exports from Karnataka, is exploring exports of maize and foodgrains.

“We are exploring maize and other foodgrains exports from Karnataka, but nothing to substitute export volumes of iron ore,” Mr P. Tamilvanan, Chairman, NMPT, told Business Line.

“Since Karnataka is likely to witness bumper maize output, we are touring maize growing regions, creating awareness to exporters that NMPT is the cheapest port available in the west coast,” he added. The port trust has handled maize traffic of 1.65 lakh tonnes during the current year as against 1.10 lakh tonnes handled during last year.

NMPT officials, last week, toured major maize growing regions such as Shimoga and Davangere. At Hubli, they met exporters of chilli, valves, and heavy machinery from Hubli-Dharwad region.

Coal imports

“In addition to maize and foodgrains exports, we have begun handling import of coal. Coal imports haveincreased substantially; in the first eight months of 2010-11, we have handled 17.63 lakh tonnes against 13.99 lakh tonnes in 2009-10,” said Mr Tamilvanan.

Infrastructure to handle coal and other bulk goods have been improved at the port and also extension of railway line inside the port has facilitated faster evacuation of bulk cargo, he added. In addition to maize and coal, NMPT is planning to increase volume of imports of coal, limestones and timber.

NMPT is also making efforts to facilitate exports of gherkins from Hassan and Hubli through the South Western Railway's inland container depot at Hassan and chillies exports from Hubli-Dharwad region.

Talking about the NMPT's performance, Mr Tamilvanan said the container traffic at the port is now doing well.

Container traffic improves

During the financial year 2009-10, the container traffic registered 10 per cent growth over the previous year.

In the current year up to October, the port has handled 32 per cent higher container traffic at 24,379 TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent units) as against 18,442 TEUs handled in the same period last year.

For the whole year 2009-10, about 31,456 TEUs were handled as against 28,555 TEUs during the previous year .

HPCL, MRPL seek crude oil storage space near ports

Quote:
NEW DELHI (Commodity Online) : Owing to the proximity of seaports at Mangalore and Visakhapatanam, HPCL and MRPL have asked the govt. for permission to store crude oil in those places, informed Oil Minister Murli Deora on Thursday.

This measure would help these state-run companies to take in oil from large crude carriers there by cutting down costs.

Indian Strategic Petroleum Reserves Ltd is pursuing a project of building three crude oil storage units each in Visakhapatnam, Mangalore and Padur.

Mangalore unit will have an initial storage capacity of 1.5 million tons while Visakhapatnam unit 1.33 million tons with the date of commissioning of both units expected in Feb 2013 and Jan 2012 respectively. The mechanical completion of the latter is expected by around Oct 2011 while that of former by Nov 2012.

Aug. 2013 will see commissioning of 2.5 million tons Padur storage unit in Karnataka, the mechanical completion of which is anticipated by May 2013.

HPCL is already pursuing completion of a single-point mooring facility in Vizag where very large crude carriers can offload. Import of crude oil through suezmax vessels have proven relatively costly to the company.

The minister clarified that there exists no plans to set up a similar storage facility in Chennai as of now.

Main Line container vessel from East Africa arrives at NMP




Mangalore, December 4: CMA CGM OKAPI – second Main Line container vessel from East Africa (Port Matwara) called at New Mangalore Port on Thursday, December 2, carrying 155 TEUs of raw cashew. This is the second main line vessel from East Africa calling at the Port during current financial year 2010-11. The vessel took only 5 ½ hours to unload 155 Boxes of raw cashew for distribution among various cashew processing units situated in and around Mangalore.


M/s CMA CGM, the agents of the ship, while expressing their happiness over the performance of the vessel at NMPT are keen in calling more main line vessels. M/s HML Agencies are the C&F agents.


The advantage of Main Line vessel directly calling at the Port is the lesser transit time and lesser handling cost. It will take only 8 days between Mangalore and East Africa whereas vessels via Colombo will take 21 days. The Exporters can utilize the advantage of moving their export cargo in the return voyage. “The increased number of Main Line vessels calling at the Port has resulted in upward growth of container traffic” says P Tamilvanan, Chairman.


While requesting all the MLOs and users to make use of the advantageous position he further added that the Port could achieve a growth rate of 31.72% during the current year(as on date) by handling 26,994 TEUs as against 20,493 TEUs handled during the corresponding period of previous year.


The first vessel for loading Maize – M.V. OCEAN CARRIER called at the Port on 2-12-2010 and started loading 5500 metric tonnes of maize for export to Indonesia. The cargo generated from the hinterland viz, Davanagere, Shimoga, etc. started moving through the port since 2 years.

NMPT is likely to become gateway port on west coast

Renuka Phadnis

Quote:
MANGALORE: When the New Mangalore Port Trust (NMPT) was called a “major” port in 1974, it handled less than one lakh tonnes of cargo. Today, 35 years later, the port handles 36 million tonnes of cargo. Catering to the needs of Kudremukh Iron Ore Company Ltd., it has grown steadily over the years. Although the ban on iron ore mining in the State by the B.S. Yeddyurappa Government is affecting NMPT's traffic, its chairman P. Tamilvanan is upbeat about the port's future.

Here are excerpts from an interview:

How has the stoppage in iron ore mining affected the port? Is your project to get mechanised iron ore handling system still on?

This year, 8.38 lakh tonnes of iron ore were sent from NMPT against 4.5 lakh tonnes last year. Now, we are hoping for better times soon. The project for mechanising handling of iron ore will be completed in two years.

Getting the hinterland to send more cargo to NMPT has been an important objective of the port. Have the efforts borne fruit?

That has been our aim as Mangalore port is the only major port with a 300-km coastline, making it a well-established gateway port with berths, and facilities for cargo such as storage, stacking and labour. It is catering to the cargo requirements of Suzlon, MRPL and Bharti Shipyard. The port has access to three national highways. We are trying to get more cargo from Bangalore (which sends it to Chennai), machinery from Mysore, coffee from Madikeri, machinery from Hubli and also cargo from Shimoga to NMPT.

What about comments that Indian ports need to be more efficient?

We are efficient. After the arrival of the new cranes, up to 40,000 tonnes of iron ore can be handled in a day at NMPT. Besides, we have a 14 m draft berth and harbour mobile cranes. There has been a 30 per cent increase from April to November in volumes of container traffic. We have built 40 high-mast lights to illuminate the port. All roads inside the port have been concretised. Also, 10,000 saplings have been planted in and around the port. Mainline vessels (those providing direct connectivity to destinations abroad) are coming into NMPT. They will never come unless the port is efficient as a mainline vessel's time is expensive. In the last two years, 14 mainline vessels have sailed into NMPT. Coal has increased from last year's 37 lakh tonnes to 45 lakh tonnes this year. MRPL is expanding and we have been increasing berths for naphtha, petrol, oil, and LPG. NMPT can handle 1.6 million tonnes of LPG. This is the maximum that can be handled in any major Indian port.

What are the facilities offered at the port?

In the last four years, we have spent Rs. 30 crore for building an additional railway platform, tower lights, and canteen. We now have a deep berth, which came up in 2006, with a draft of 14 metres against the earlier draft of 10.1 metres. At present, NMPT can handle 80,000 tonnes of bulk cargo (iron ore, coal, limestone). There is a container freight station facility run by the Central Warehousing Corporation (CWC) near the port. Cargo can be consolidated and documents completed and sent directly to the gateway port. Earlier, these processes were done in Concor, which was not located here. Now, documentation is done here. Concor has published the rates. However, it will take some time to get into full gear.
NMPT steels itself with non-ore cargo

For several years, iron ore constituted a major share of the port's cargo handling. With the ban on ore exports, the port is strengthening traffic in various other sectors.

Quote:

New Mangalore port has registered nearly 30 per cent growth in container handling till November-end this fiscal.

A.J. Vinayak

If the current trend in cargo handling at New Mangalore Port Trust (NMPT) is any indication, coal, containers, food grains and project cargoes are likely to feature significantly in the port's traffic profile during the current financial year. This assumes significance at a time when the port has been hit badly by the Karnataka Government's decision to ban export of iron ore from the State.

The cargo throughput at the port stood at 20.81 million tonnes till November-end in the current financial year, as against 23.95 million tonnes in the corresponding period of the previous fiscal.

The ban on iron ore export has created a shortfall of around 3 million tonnes in cargo handling at the port.

For several years, iron ore constituted a major share of the port's cargo handling. Till November end, the port handled only 8 lakh tonnes (45 lakh tonnes) of iron ore cargo.

COAL

Nevertheless, the port is now strengthening its traffic profile in other sectors.

Mr P. Tamilvanan, Chairman of NMPT, told Business Line that the port handled around 1.9 million tonnes (1.4 million tonnes) of coal cargo till November-end.

Udupi Power Corporation Ltd (UPCL) has been importing coal for its thermal power unit in neighbouring Udupi district. Sugar and steel manufacturing units in the hinterland are also importing coal.

CONTAINERS

Container is the other segment showing gradual growth over the years. New Mangalore has registered nearly 30 per cent growth till November-end this fiscal, handling 26,640 TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent units) of containers, compared with 20,493 TEUs in the corresponding period the previous year.

In fact, when one of the mainline container vessels was diverted from Kochi owing to a strike at that port, New Mangalore was able to handle its nearly 150 containers in five-and-a-half hours. There has been a nearly 80 per cent jump in the handling of coffee containers, at 3,658 TEUs (2,021 TEUs).

Many cashew processing units in Karnataka now bring raw cashew nuts from East Africa through mainline container vessels. During the current financial year, two mainline vessels unloaded around 300 TEUs of raw cashew containers at the New Mangalore port.

It is a win-win situation for both the importers and the port. The direct calling of mainline vessels brings down the transit time and handling cost for importers. Even the export of wax candles from Mangalore has gained momentum, with the port handling 894 TEUs (630 TEUs) till November.

Mr Tamilvanan said improved marketing of the port, efficiency in cargo handling, and concession in pilotage charges have helped the port attract substantial container cargo this year.

FOODGRAINS

New Mangalore Port is also targeting cargo in foodgrains export this year. Citing figures for foodgrain production in Karnataka, Mr S. Gopalakrishna, Traffic Manager of NMPT, said the State is likely to produce around 28 lakh tonnes of rice, 34.5 lakh tonnes of maize, 8.8 lakh tonnes of pulses and 6 lakh tonnes of ‘toor dal' this year. With surplus production of some foodgrains, they are likely to be exported. Already maize is exported through New Mangalore Port, he said.

Targeting foodgrains export, the port is conducting trade meets at several areas in its hinterland, includingHubli, Shimoga and Davangere, he said.

Mr Tamilvanan said that the port, which has four warehouses, is planning to construct two additional warehouses of 3,000 sq metres each for this segment.

PROJECT CARGO

Project cargoes are gaining momentum at NMPT as some of the industrial units are expanding capacities. Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Ltd, which is implementing third-phase expansion of its refinery, is bringing more project cargo this fiscal. The port authorities have made arrangements for the smooth handling of these over-dimensional project cargoes.

A windmill equipment manufacturer in neighbouring Udupi district is also contributing a significant share to the project cargoes at the port.

However, liquid bulk cargo remains a major component of the port's total cargo handling, contributing 14.53 million tonnes (14.83 million tonnes) till end of November this fiscal.

As the ban on iron ore export may yet affect the port's total cargo throughput, it remains to be seen how best the efforts to boost traffic will succeed during the current financial year.

Nearly 150 passengers opted for ground tour and visited places in and around Mangalore. The vessel, which came from Kochi, sailed back to Muscat. A majority of the passengers were from Austria followed by Germany, the UK and the US.

The Deputy Chairman of NMPT, Mr T.S.N. Murthy, and the Traffic Manager met the Captain of the vessel. The release said that the Captain of the vessel expressed his happiness over the arrangements made at NMPT.

Quoting Mr P. Tamilvanan, NMPT Chairman, the release said that the port administration is keen to handle cruise vessels. All steps are taken for the smooth handling of cruise vessels. The next vessel is scheduled to call at the port on December 23, it said.

TRADE MEET

Another release said here that NMPT, in association with Shimoga District Chamber of Commerce and Industry, organised a trade meet at Shimoga on Friday.

The meet was held to update importers and exporters from Shimoga, Davangere, Sagar, Bhadravati, Chitradurga and Chikmagalur regions about the latest developments and infrastructure addition at the port.

These regions generate a large volume of maize, agro products, machineries, sugar and container cargoes. Some of the industrial units in these regions import coal, the release added.

NMPT handles 6 container vessels in 4 days

Mangalore, December 21: New Mangalore Port is seeing an upswing with container traffic during the last four days. The port between December 17 and 20 has handled a record number of six container vessels out of which two were main line and four feeder vessels.
All these six vessels contributed 2,173 TEUs to the container
traffic of the Port. Another significant achievement is the record handling of 611 TEUs in a day on December 17. A press release from the port stated that this surpassed the earlier record of 555 TEUs handled in a single day on September 26. In addition to the above, the port handled three container vessels simultaneously on December 18 and 19, which is also a record.
The above two main line vessels directly called from East Africa.http://www.coastaldigest.com/index.p...ries&Itemid=68
container traffic is making a great improvement in NMPT if the containers from bangalore are transported thru mangalore instead of chennai it ll really save the states spending and increase profit as well

With the current railway line we cant have more supply from mysore and bangalore. Its already in saturation in ghat section. For this either the line should be doubled or for the near future demand enough number of railway crossing should be built and the restriction of one train at a time in ghat section should be removed

Port handles large gas carrier

Quote:
New Mangalore Port has added one more feather to its cap on the New Year’s Day by handling M T Maharshi Vamadeva, a large gas carrier (LGC) carrying 33,000 metric tonnes of LPG which called at the Port Wednesday.

According to a press release, the vessel berthed at Berth No 12 for evacuation of the entire consignment meant for distribution in the State.
This is the largest size of LPG vessel ever handled at the Port. The entire consignment has been brought as coastal movement from Sikka Port in Gujarat, for M/s Total Oil India, a subsidiary of Total France. New Mangalore Port is the No 1 Port in handling LPG in the country. The Port has handled a record quantity of 1.63 million tonnes of LPG during 2009-10 as against 1.56 million tonnes handled in previous year. The current year also shows upward trend by handling 1.38 million tonnes of LPG during 2010-11 (Upto December 2010) as against 1.22 million tonnes handled during the corresponding period of last year with a growth of 12.97 per cent. NMPT Chairman P Tamilvanan said that the NMPT could achieve this landmark by permitting Total Oil India to intall LPG handling facilities at Berth No 12 on January 25, 2009. Large parcel size of LPG vessels (LGCs) will be handled at this berth and even VLCs (Very Large Gas Carriers) with a carrying capacity of 40,000 plus are expected to handle at NMPT in the future days.

NMPT begins work on POL berth construction

Quote:


Mangalore, Feb. 16: The New Mangalore Port Trust (NMPT) has begun work on the construction of the berth number 13, which helps the port handle POL (petroleum, oil and lubricant) products at the port.

Mr P. Tamilvanan, Chairman of NMPT, told Business Line here on Wednesday that the work for the project was awarded on December 9, 2010, and work began on February 12. The completion period for the project is 20 months. The total project cost is estimated at Rs 79 crore. After completion, the berth can handle around 7.68 million tonnes of POL cargo a year.

He said the berth would help meet the requirements of POL users, including Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Ltd (MRPL).

Coal berth

Construction of the Rs 230-crore berth No 15 is in progress at the port for handling coal cargo. The berth, which can handle 5.4 million tonnes of cargo a year, is expected to be completed by April, he said. The Udupi Power Corporation Ltd, which has a thermal power plant at Padubidri, will handle around three million tonnes of coal a year from this berth.

Stating that the coal cargo has grown at the port over the past six years, he said the coal traffic, which was 3.15 lakh tonnes during 2004-05, increased to 27.90 lakh tonnes during 2009-10.

Container terminal

Asked about the construction of a container terminal at the port, he said the port had received 14 expressions of interest (EOIs) for the project. Of them, five were selected for RFQ (request for quotation). Investors did not show interest in RFP (request for proposal) as the container handling rate was less. However, Mr Tamilvanan said, the port is pursuing for a container terminal.

The container cargo at the port has been witnessing a growth over the years with more mainline vessels calling at the port. Mr Tamilvanan said the seventh mainline container vessel from East Africa — m.v. Kota Nazim — called at the port on February 13. The vessel, which unloaded 281 TEUs of raw cashew cargo, loaded 132 TEUs of export containers of fish meal and granite, he said.

He said the port handled five heavy consignments for Bharathi Shipyard weighing around 2,000 tonnes. The project cargo from South Korea was brought in m.v. Dongbang No 3 on February 12, and the cargo was unloaded using ro-ro (roll on roll off) method, he added.

New Mangalore port targets coffee belt for Madikeri meet

Quote:
MANGALORE, FEB. 17: Considering the vast potential of coffee cargo in the hinterland areas such as Kodagu, Chikmagalur and Hassan districts of Karnataka, the New Mangalore Port Trust (NMPT) is planning to conduct a trade meet at Madikeri in Kodagu district on February 19.

Sources in the port told Business Line that these three districts put together generate nearly 50,000 TEUs (20-foot equivalent units) of container cargo. Of this, a major share is contributed by coffee cargo.

The port handled nearly 95,000 tonnes of coffee cargo during the current financial year as against nearly 54,000 TEUs in the previous fiscal.

With this background, NMPT is venturing to organise a trade meet with curing house operators, exporters, growers, and trade fraternity along with mainline operators, they said.

Mr Praveen Kumar Bangera, President of the Mangalore Steamer Agents' Association, said that the February 19 trade meet will help attract more coffee cargo to New Mangalore.

cashew trade

Citing the example of cashew trade, he said the cashew importers, under the leadership of the Karnataka Cashew Manufacturers' Association, consolidated the cargo at the points of origin in East and West Africa.

mainline vessels

This paved the way for the calling of mainline vessels at the New Mangalore port.

The port, which started with one mainline vessel three years ago, is now handling more than six to seven mainline vessels a year. This is because of the efforts made by the cashew importers along with the shipping line, he said. With the direct calling of vessels the freight rate is coming down for export cargoes also.

Mr Bangera suggested that coffee trade should follow the same strategy. “Same efforts we require from the coffee exporters who can consolidate the cargo and send them to Mangalore,” he added.

Port officials hoped that more than 100 people ranging from curing house operators, exporters, growers, and mainline operators are expected to attend the trade meet on February 19.

The trade meet is being organised in association with Federation of Karnataka Chambers of Commerce and Industry, and Kodagu Chamber of Commerce and Industry, they added.
