Coastal Energen awards Coal Handling Plant Contract

Coastal Energen has awarded the coal handling plant contract to ThyssenKrupp India - an MNC. The link is as below and the details are also attached. This news is also posted in Mega power projects thread, but for the benefit of readers following tuticorin development I have posted the same here...

http://beta.thehindu.com/business/co...icle257730.ece

Quote:
Coastal Energen Private Limited, the power generation flagship company of Coal and Oil group, has awarded a contract to ThyssenKrupp, a group company of ThyssenKrupp of Germany, for installing coal handling plant at its 1,200 MW power plant, Mutiara thermal power plant, Tuticorin. The order is estimated at Rs. 275 crore.

Detailing the progress of the project at a press conference here on Thursday , Ahmed A.R. Buhari, founder President and CEO of Coal and Oil group of companies, said the Rs. 5,000-crore 2x600 MW Tuticorin plant is expected to commence operations by the middle of 2012. The plant has a provision to expand upto 3,600 MW and has achieved financial closure with SBI and 16 other banks. The plant will supply power to the State Electricity Board and to the private sector, for which a power purchase agreement ha been signed with Tata Power, Mr. Buhari said. The company plans to install another power plant of 2 x 800 MW at the existing site.

The work on the Tuticorin power plant had commenced with the placing of order on Harbin Power Engineering Company of China worth Rs. 2,000 crore. Orders for civil works and Bi Flue Chimney have been placed on Gammon India for Rs. 450 crore and construction activity is in full swing. The company had already floated the tenders for all other major contract packages and expected to finalise them shortly, Mr. Buhari said.

Duraiswamy Padmanabhan, Managing Director of Thyssennkrupp India said the coal-handling equipment would have the facility to blend more efficiently the Indian and imported coal.

Nothing to cheer from the Budget

Please find full details of the TN Budget 2010-2011

http://www.tn.gov.in/budget/Budget_S..._2010_2011.pdf

Search for thoothukudi.

It is appearing 3 times

1) Construction of buildings for the Engineering College inaguarted last year
2) Mention of ECR Road - which is already completed
3) Coastal Energen Plant - Govt has done nothing for this.

Others in Tuty District

1) Mention of developing Tiruchendur as a tourism destination
2) Incentives for entrepreneurs for building hotel and tourism projects In Kattaboman fort - Good move but dont know if there will be any takers.

There is no mention of the SIPCOT Phase 2 land acquisition, there is no mention on the land acquisition for Tuty airport. With no funds allocated in Budget dont think we will see any progress.

It is again very disappointing budget from the Govt with all development activities concentrated in Chennai and periphery district of Chennai. Earlier it was Kanchi and Tiruvallur districts, now it is Tiruvannamalai and Villupuram. There is only hope when Chennai city grows and comes close to southern districts then we can see some developments in southern districts
Until then we look forward to only private sector making investments on their own...

Cheers!!!

Facility Upgrade at Tuty Fishing Harbour

A small development update on the upgradation of facilities in Tuty Fishing Harbour... Link and details are as below..

Well I also saw another news only recently they are planning for upgrading the facilities to world class levels to meet the stringent exporting norms from western countries

http://www.hindu.com/2010/03/19/stor...1960120300.htm

Quote:
With a view to promote hygienic standards of handling and preserving fishery products, improvement works to the tune of Rs. 41.9 lakh were taken up at the auction hall of the fish landing centre in the fishing harbour here recently.

The modernised auction hall was inaugurated by the Assistant Director of Fisheries (Marine), A. Antony Xavier. M. Baby, Assistant Director, MPEDA, C. Ravindran, State Coordinator, MPEDA, and P. Jebakumar Ranjan, Assistant Executive Engineer, Fishing Harbour Subdivision, Tuticorin were present.

The works were taken up by the Marine Products Export Development Authority (MPEDA) in association with Fisheries Department to promote hygienic preservation of fishery products.

The hall was furnished with granite flooring along with more lighting facilities to facilitate the need of the fishermen at auction point.

Foot-dip arrangements were also made at the entrance of the hall, where in the fishermen would cleanse their foot before entering the hall.

Safe counters were also available to safeguard money. Previously the auctioneers were seen keeping money in open while busy at work, but now they need not put themselves to such difficulties.

Furthermore the hall, which is meant for packing fish, would be strengthened with the necessary infrastructure.

The tube ice plant would come up at a place adjacent to the auction hall. Referring to the plant, the sources added that it would be of optimum use for the fishermen.

The quality of crushed ice would not suit the conditions conducive for the preservation of fish.

It would melt fast and the preservation would not be on a par with hygienic standards as expected.

Since the importing countries stress on the need for meeting hygienic standards in the preservation of fish, steps were being taken for vital development measures and modernisation of plant facilities to ensure quality control standards.


The sale of fish goes up to Rs. 1 crore on an average per day, with as many as 260 mechanised boats at the fishing harbour in particular. Since the catch fetches a huge sum of money, the fishermen should accord utmost care by adopting the standards of hygienic fish handling at the landing centres also.

A huge crowd is being witnessed at the fishing harbour between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. regularly with hectic activities of selling.

The fishermen return from sea with their catch to the auction hall during that time. The hawkers and fish mongers are seen thronging the area.

Besides, more than fifty per cent of the fish catch is being sold for domestic consumption.

10 village panchayats to come under Tuticorin Corporation limits

TUTICORIN: Ten village panchayats will come under Tuticorin Corporation limits and the number of wards is expected to increase from the existing 51.

The enumeration of population in these village panchayats would be taken up in due course of time, corporation sources said.

Having been accorded the status of corporation, Tuticorin is witnessing many development works. Pipelines were being laid for underground drainage (UGD) system which was taken up in January 2008.

The project is being carried out at an estimated cost of Rs. 80 crore and is expected to get over by June end as per an official notification.

However, sources said that it may get delayed by a few more months. Seventy eight km have been completed against the target of 115 km, an engineer said.

Though over 500 workers are engaged in the UGD project, Tamil Nadu Water and Drainage Board (TWAD) engineers claim that water was struck even at two feet depth since Tuticorin has a sandy soil.

Since it is situated along the sea, the water was also not receding. Water from the trenches, which were dug, had to be pumped out with a machine and sheet files were required to cover both sides of the work site. It also means expenditure and more time.

Under accelerator sludge process, the muddy matter was being removed easily in the dug up area.

Cooperation from people is needed at this juncture, sources said.

Thumbs up Export of fishery products progressing well: Director

http://www.hindu.com/2010/03/27/stor...2764080700.htm

Tuticorin: The export of fishery products is progressing well and with the help of resources, more value addition is being given for Cobia, a species of fish, also known as (Kadal Viral), V.K. Venkataramani, Director of Research and Extension, has said.

He was addressing a workshop on ‘Value Addition of Cobia Fish into Convenience Products for Domestic and International Markets,' at Fisheries College of Research Institute here on Friday.

The programme was organised under the aegis of the Indian Council of Agriculture and Research through National Agriculture Innovation Project. With the objective of promoting the export-oriented marine value chain for farmed seafood production using Cobia through rural entrepreneurship; the programme was conducted for the fisher folk and members of self-help groups.

“The frozen fish has recorded the highest annual growth rate of export but the shrimps and prawns constitute a major category of sea food. At the outset of modernisation to globalisation, the seafood industry has become more market-driven. Since the demand for the fishery products is high, the methods of hygienic preservation will be adopted. Utmost importance should be given to ensure hygienic handling and preservation of all species of edible fish as per the guidelines of World Trade Organisation. Once the quality of fish is good, the value of fish goes high”, he added. The enhanced quality sea food would certainly maximise the exporting capacity to a large extent. Hence, the value added fish products have gained more importance in the market.

There was a rapid growth of sea food export market during 2008- 09 in India. The European Union, which is the largest se food market, had imported 1.5 lakh tonnes of seafood to the tune of Rs. 2, 800 crore from India. Pickles, noodles, tandoori, masala flavoured dry fish, makrooni, chips and burger could be made of Cobia fish, he said.

“Cobia fish is the talk of the day. There is a huge demand in Taiwan for Cobia and people of Taiwan are even celebrating “Cobia festival” with more enthusiasm”, M. Venkatasami, Dean (in – charge), FCRI, said.

“Value addition to any product is essentially required and it has become a vital factor for survival in the market. With good nutrition value, there can be a healthy and suitable trend for marketing”, P. Velayutham, Professor, Department of Fish Processing Technology, said.

PJ.K. Chandrasekar, Managing Director, Kondia Sea Fresh Foods Private Limited, spoke on the food processing techniques and methods of packing sea food, which were useful for exporting companies. Earlier, a manual was released.

K. Rathnakumar, Organising Secretary, and N. Felix, Consortium, Principal Investigator, were present.

Training is being imparted on maintaining smooth relationship with passengers


Tuticorin: The Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation will introduce 13 new buses in Tuticorin in the month of April, 2010.

The buses will ply from Tuticorin to various places including Coimbatore, Tirupur, Velankanni, Rajapalayam, Aruppukottai, Tiruchi, Kumbum, Kumuli, Punalur and Kotarakara.

To increase passenger convenience while travelling, the new buses were designed with more space providing more legroom.

Besides, a one hour yoga training a day was being provided to all drivers and conductors to bring down the stress level.

Training on maintaining smooth relations with passengers was also being imparted.

Apart from creating awareness about road safety for the student community, signboards would be given to high schools in Tuticorin to enable the students to familiarise the signals, which were essential for driving.

The signboards had already been installed in as many as 140 high schools in Tirunelveli.

In Tuticorin, signboards would be given to 140 high schools as well.

The compact discs with contents of games related to safety norms would also be given to schools to raise awareness.

Good news to hear... let me also check with some local sources for more information.... but in the next 2 years one can see a one time jump in the population of Tuty by around 1 lakh due to the various projects under implementation... The certain ones are as below
1) Sterlite New Copper Plant
2) Sterlite Captive Power Plant
3) Coastal Energen Power Plant
4) Ind Barath 450 MW Power Plant in Ottapidaram
5) CCCL Food SEZ after the Airport
6) NLC Power Plant
7) Sterlite Copper SEZ

There are a lot of projects in pipeline which might or might not materialize
1) SIPCOT Phase 2
2) ST John SEZ
3) SPIC Restart - still some hidden issues... dont know when things will be fully alright
4) Port Expansion Plans
and much more...

So given the above facts one can see a 1 time jump in population around Tuty....so we can expect some more housing projects to spring up fast to accomodate these new population...

Pls update if you get some information...

Cheers!

^Already expansion is going on in Tuty port. Also, they are waiting for security clearance to start passenger service from Tuty to Colombo as per the Dinamalar article below:

Well this is one of the many statements which these government officials keep making that these projects are under implementation. Every time a function is held at Tuty Port they give these statements that many projects are ongoing... but the fact is that since 2000, only 1 berth - the 8th berth was commissioned in 2002 and the next one 9th berth is still under consideration which was cleverly opened by the honorable CM before the Parliamentary election in 2009...

The status of all new tenders and projects are updated on the Tuticorin Port website on a regular (mostly montly) basis..the link for the same is

http://tuticorinport.gov.in/tenderstatus/Civil/plan.htm

The conversion of 8th berth is in plan for around 5 years since 2005-2006 and still retender is not in place.. Link on the news is as below

http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/...2350970500.htm

The deepening of harbour is in plans for a long time and approvals also in place for almost 3 years and still the latest tender is not finalized. There was an earlier tender which was discharged, so now it is the second tender and I am not fully confident that this time too it will be approved. Link for the same is

http://www.marinebuzz.com/2007/12/23...s-during-2007/

The 9th berth is in construction for the last 3 years, the initial scheduled completion date is in 2008 and still not completed. The status of the project can be seen in the tuticorinport website already mentioned in this message.

The projects now in progress are completion of 9th berth, construction of North Cargo Berth-1.

In a nutshell, the statements made by these govt officials have no sense unless you see it happening.. some of the planned projects will never
light only...

It is high time that a private port comes up in Southern Tamilnadu for the overall growth of the region...

Sathees, Please note I just wanted to bring out the facts and in no way wanted to make offensively comment on the news article posted by you. Cheers!

Tuty Region Development Site Map

I marked locations of few development sites in and around Tuty including the old ones



The legend is as below
Yellow placemarks are having developments ongoing
Pink is for completed and operational sites
Red is for planned but no action done
Light Blue is for real estate developments

Let me try to improve the markings.... and also need to get 1 more map for regions around tiruchendur to mark DCW and new power plant sites and the port near manapad...

Public Hearing for Ind Barath 450 MW Plant

Well the news from 2 different sources, 1 from Hindu says people support the plant

http://www.hindu.com/2010/04/10/stor...1054880300.htm

While the other one from Tuty Online puts the message in not so positive sense

http://www.tutyonline.net/view/31_32...409154650.html

The public hearings are more of a formality and no major action items as part of the public hearing...

BTW for everyone's benefit this is the plant which Ind Barath is relocating from Karwar to Tuty. As long as they adhere to the pollution norms and use water from sea by desalination plants it is always welcome to have these plants for the overall development of the region

Cheers!

Sterlite Plans looks interesting

Sterlite's own press release about their expansion plans..

One major concern on power was solved by their captive power plant proposal and work is in progress already on that aspect with the contractors being Tata Projects and the boiler and turbine contracts being given to BHEL.

Now the second major concern on water shortage is now getting addressed by a desalination plant. This augurs well for the overall region and will give relief to all residents due to ever increasing water shortage. If SPIC also restarts operations it will be catastrophic with water supply to residents will go further down.

Also pleasing to know that Sterlite is in the race for NCB-2. Sterlite is known for its quick implementation.

http://expressbuzz.com/finance/sterl...nt/163838.html

Quote:
THOOTHUKUDI: Sterlite Industries, a subsidiary of Vedanta Group, will be setting up a desalination plant in Thoothukudi by the end of 2011, the first of its kind, said Ramesh Nair, Chief Operating Officer of Sterlite Industries here on Thursday.


Speaking to Express, he said, “Our endeavour is to preserve natural resources while at the same time, ensure continuous supply of water in this water scarce area”. When asked about the specifications, he said that the output will be 10 million litres per day (MLD) and will be built at an estimated cost of Rs 100 crore in Thoothukudi.

“Sterlite will completely use the water thus generated from this desalination plant, apart from giving a part of the 10 MLD of water to neighbouring villages in Thoothukudi under CSR activities”, Ramesh Nair pointed out.

“The capacity expansion will be in SIPCOT-allotted land in Thoothukudi and the plant will be built in SEZ module”, Ramesh Nair told Express when asked about the in-principle approval granted to Sterlite for setting up copper SEZ in Thoothukudi. It may be noted that the company is on a major expansion plan to double its capacity from the present 400 to 800 KTPA (Kilo Tonnes Per Annum) by mid-2011 with an estimated total investment of Rs 2,300 crore ($500 million). The expansion also includes 2×60 MW captive power plants and associated facilities like sulphuric and phosphoric acid plants.

“The expansion plan will give a push to south Indian commerce with business worth Rs 10,000 crore from Thoothukudi”, Ramesh Nair said. Post-expansion, the company will become the largest single-location copper smelters in the world and around 4,000 employment opportunities will be generated, he added. Sterlite has also made a bid for developing North Cargo Berth-II (NCB-II) in Tuticorin Port. “We export more and considering the port traffic, we feel the dedicated berth will give more efficiency”, Ramesh Nair added

Thanks Blackpearl for the picture. It helps understand the distance of projects from Tuticorin city better.
