Toyota exports & imports (Karnataka) is deeply hampered by the delay in transportation from & to Ports in Chennai.

Similarly Nissan & Hyundai also.

I really wonder why they can't take Tuticorin port which might be another 250KM extra.. instead of wasting time at Chennai port due to congestion.. they can take congestion free Tuticorin port which has very good 4-lane road all the way from Krishnagiri to Port gate.

Good wish.

But their major exports being from Karnataka and Chennai suburbs, they prefer Chennai.

Now Chennai Port is out on a limb. So they are insisting on Ennore / Kattuppalli.

For future plans also, their whole imports / exports have been planned around Ennore / Kattuppalli ports.

Tuti Port is incidentally controlled by a local baron as Chennai Port by a local family.

According to one investor in this area the road projects are going slowly with hiccups despite the prod given by the japanese team and the CG top official.He says that SG should take more proactive role.This calling for tenders and selecting the successful bidder is taking unduly longtime and in certain cases the projects are only in the drawing board stage.Given this situation japs are more interested in Bgl-Mumbai industrial corridor rather than CBIC.

Nissan to use only Ennore port for next 10 years

Quote:
July 20, 2013:
Chennai, July 20 Nissan Motor India will use only the Ennore port to export cars manufactured at its Oragadam plant near Chennai for the next ten years.

In case, the Ennore port is unable to handle cars for some reason, Nissan and its alliance partner Renault can use only Chennai port, and no other port.

A new agreement signed today between Nissan and Ennore Port Ltd can be terminated if either Nissan or Renault export their cars through any other sea port other than Ennore or Chennai.

The earlier agreement signed in September 2009 was valid for three years. Under the new agreement, which is valid for ten years, Nissan will enjoy concessions in the wharfage up to 60,000 units per year at the rate of 0.36 per cent per unit.

The company will also get free parking space for the first 15 days and priority in handling of automobile units in the port, says a company press release.

Vessel calling is also important.

11 firms submit proposals for developing container terminal at Ennore Port


Quote:
Eleven companies, including four foreign firms, have submitted their Requests for Qualification (RFQ) proposals for developing the Rs.1,270-crore container terminal at Ennore Port.

These proposals will be evaluated by Ennore Port authorities and the names of short-listed firms announced within the next two weeks. Thursday was the last date for submitting the proposals for developing the Ennore Container Terminal (ECT).

According to sources, Hindustan Ports, Adani Port and Special Economic Zone (APSEZ), Gammon Infrastructure Projects, Essar Ports, Sterlite Ports, Consortium of Concast Infratech Limited & Hyundai Engineering & Construction Co. Ltd, Consortium of Bollore Africa Logistics & Megalift Material Handling, L&T IDPL, APM Terminals B.V., Consortium of IMC-SEW and PSA Chennai Investments Pte Ltd took part in the RFQ process.

Annual capacity

As per the proposal, the selected firm has to construct ECT on design, build, finance, operate and transfer basis for a concession period of 30 years.

The terminal will have a capacity to handle annually 1.4 million twenty-foot equivalent units of containers.

Offers rejected

Interestingly, APSEZ and Essar Ports were shortlisted for constructing the mega container terminal of Chennai Port Trust.

But their offers were rejected as the revenue offered by them was considered too low.

Earlier, EPL decided to build ECT with a quay length of 1,000 metres costing Rs.1,407 crore.

Later, the proposal was modified to 730 metres, to be built in two phases, at a cost of Rs.1,270 crore.

Project modified

After having failed in its maiden attempt, Ennore Port Ltd (EPL) Chairman-cum-Managing Director M.A. Bhaskarachar modified the project in January based on feedback from interested parties.

Eleven players responded to the Expression of Interest notice issued by the port and the pre-bid meeting was attended by seven firms.

Chennai, July 29:

The stand-off in the implementation of the Chennai port-Maduravoyal Expressway road project could be a blessing in disguise for the Ennore port.

The 19-km elevated corridor begins at Chennai port Gate No.10 and travels along the bank of the Cooum River till it reaches Koyambedu and along the median of National Highway 4 thereon till it ends at Maduravoyal.

The project is considered vital for Chennai Port’s two private container terminals and was used as a marketing tool to attract bidders for the Rs 4,500 crore mega container terminal project.

However, with the expressway project in a limbo, bidders were hesitant to participate in the mega project due to likely problems in evacuation of containers from the port.

The Ennore port, which is 20 km north of Chennai, is now touting better connectivity - both road and rail - as its unique selling proposition to market its Rs 1,460 crore container terminal project. And, it has succeeded in doing so with 11 global companies showing interest in the project.

The expressway project has come to a grinding halt after the present AIADMK regime came to power. While construction was gaining pace, the State Water Resources Department wanted the National Highways Authority of India, which is implementing the project, to realign the expressway and proceed with the Rs 1,815-crore project. This, the NHAI said, was not feasible, and the project is in a standstill mode now.

The existing two private container terminals at Chennai port - DP World Chennai and PSA – can have some comfort with the Ennore-Manali road improvement project nearing completion. This will provide a four-lane road to connect the Ennore region.

The two terminals have enough capacity and the adjacent Katupalli port has already set up a full fledged container terminal. Despite this, the Ennore port is confident that its project will take off in a big way, thanks to better connectivity, an official of Ennore Port Ltd said.

Ennore port is connected to three National Highways. NH-5 connects Chennai and Kolkata; the NH-4 links Chennai with Mumbai and NH-45 connects Chennai and southern districts of Tamil Nadu.

The Tiruvottiyur-Ponneri-Panchetty (TPP) road is a critical link to Ennore port. This road is being widened to four-lane one under the Ennore Manali Road Improvement project.
Outer ring road

To ease congestion on the city’s main arterial road and to ensure free flow of vehicular traffic, the Tamil Nadu government has decided to build a 62-km long connectivity corridor linking Vandalur on NH-45 with Minjur on the TPP road. This project is being developed in two phases.

A new 4-lane road from Northern gate of Ennore port to Thachur in NH5, including a link to the TPP road, for a total of 25.5 km is being proposed by the State government.

Alignment finalisation is underway. On completion, this road will have an additional connectivity to the port without touching the congested city traffic.
Rail connectivity

The port is connected to the Southern Railways network at Attipattu and Attipattu Pudhunagar railways stations at about 6 km from the port on the Chennai-Gudur section. The port plans to be connected via railw until the end of the container terminal.

If everything goes according to plan, trains would run right in the middle of Chennai’s Outer Ring Road with vehicular movement on either side of the track in a couple of years.

This railway line will connect Ennore port with Nemilicheri, and eventually connect with the Chennai-Bangalore railway network.

Bad News
Petronet wants IOC to drop Ennore LNG terminal
http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/...w/21596429.cms

With Indian Oil Corp (IOC) looking to set up two LNG terminals on the east coast, Petronet LNG Ltd has asked the state-run refiner to drop plans to duplicate infrastructure and has offered to meet all of its gas needs.

While Petronet is close to starting a 5 million ton-a-year import facility at Kochi in Kerala and a similar-capacity terminal on the Andhra Pradesh coast in 2016, IOCBSE -0.60 % plans to build LNG plants at Ennore in Tamil Nadu and Dhamara port in Odisha, primarily to meet the gas needs of its refineries.

Petronet, the nation's biggest importer of gas in liquid form, known as liquefied natural gas or LNG, says its Kochi facility and the upcoming terminal at Gangavaram in Andhra Pradesh provide easy connectivity to meet all of IOC's gas needs at the Chennai refinery.

Sources said Petronet has offered IOC as much capacity as it needs at Kochi and Gangavaram to import gas.

IOC, ONGC, GAIL and BPCLBSE -1.59 % each hold a 12.5 per cent stake in Petronet, a firm that was created to set up facilities to import LNG in ships to meet the country's energy needs.

Petronet Managing Director & CEO A K Balyan recently wrote to IOC Chairman R S Butola, saying use of the Kochi and Gangavaram facilities would be better utilisation of capital than building new terminals at a cost of Rs 4,500 crore each.

The Kochi terminal, he wrote, would be able to cater to the major requirement of natural gas in the south.

"...(the) Kochi-Bangalore pipeline which passes through state of Tamil Nadu can very well be extended to cater to other regions in the state like Chennai and market gas at substantially lower cost and time than a greenfield terminal at Ennore.

"It would also ensure better utilization of capital and other resources," he wrote. "Petronet also offers to assure appropriate capacity at Kochi to feed the gas requirement to the customers planned from Ennore terminal. We therefore propose that IOC may relook into its plans for Ennore terminal."

Also, IOC's gas requirement for the upcoming Paradip refinery can be met from the Gangavaram import terminal near Vishakhapatnam.

"We will be glad to discuss how best we can work together to meet IOC's requirement by utilisation of the LNG infrastructure already in place," he added.

While the Gangavaram terminal will come up in 2016, Petronet is looking at hiring a floating terminal (Floating Storage & Re-gasification Unit) for 3-5 years to cover the period till the terminal is completed.

Petronet operates a 10 million ton-per-annum terminal at Dahej in Gujarat, which it plans to expand to 15 million tons by 2016.

TAMP boost for PPP projects in major ports

http://www.business-standard.com/art...0601123_1.html

We read such things everyday, but not sure when a project will actually start, and if it does, when will it ever reach completion (or will it be completed at all or stalled in the middle somewhere)?

Chennai, Aug. 13:

The Chennai Port Trust plans to convert the Jawahar Dock (East) berth into a small container terminal.

The berth was used to handle coal till a few years back, but has been lying unused after coal handling was shifted to Ennore port.

A proposal for a Rs 4,200-crore mega container terminal failed to attract good response from potential bidders. Hence, the Port Trust now wants to create a small container terminal to handle around 800,000 TEUs (twenty foot equivalent units) a year. The terminal will compete with the two existing container terminal operated by DP World Chennai and Chennai International Terminals of the Port of Singapore Authority .

The Port Trust plans to give the JD East berth to a private player on a 30-year concession on design, build, finance, operate and transfer basis.

Three months ago, the Port Trust had plans to continue handling bulk products at the JD East berth. It also invited proposals for this from financial consultants and transaction advisors for a Rs 275-crore project through Public Private Partnership on Design, Build, Finance, Operate and Transfer.

However, the plan was changed in favour of a container terminal as the consultant, Jacobs Engineering India, felt the port may not be able to attract bulk cargo, said the Port Trust Chairman, Atulya Mishra. The board, too, approved the proposals in its last meeting, he told Business Line.

When asked about the feasibility of the project when the two existing terminals are struggling to attract cargo, Mishra said the future lies in containerisation. In India, only 20 per cent of cargo is moved by containers while globally it is 60-70 per cent, he said.

A lot of modifications will be required before giving JD East to the private player. For instance, the approach channel for ships to enter the Jawahar Dock is quite narrow and needs to be widened. Access to the terminal by road is tough and needs modifications, the official said.

Also, on the East side, there are large storage tanks and godowns that need to be removed to make space to stack containers, he said.

One of the inherent advantage of Jawahar dock is that it has a good railway network and a huge unused bulk cargo storage yard as compared to the PSA container terminal. If a dedicated freight line could be established from the port to a dry port in SPDM or North Chennai ChPT will again become competent to Ennore.

L&T's container terminal at Kattupalli to commence from Sept 19
Quote:
After a delay of nearly two years Larsen & Toubro Limited (L&T's) much awaited container terminal project at Kattupalli, on the north of Chennai, to go on commercial stream from September.

The little over around Rs 2,000 crore container terminal project is expected to take away major chunk of container traffic from the Chennai port.

The first vessel to call the Port on September 19, 2013, Thailand Chennai Express Service (TCX a consortium of NYK & X-Feeders). The Port rotation of this service will be Laem chebang – Singapore – Port Klang – Kattupalli – Chennai – Port Klang-Singapore-Laem Chabang. Sources in the Port said that every seventh day a vessel will be calling the Port.

While welcoming the new development, industry experts have said that the project will move out some of the container traffics from the Chennai Port. “We will not be surprised if 10% of the containers move to Kattupalli immediately from Chennai”.

They added, one of the major advantages will be free movement of the containers. Sources said that due to congestions at Chennai port, export boxes takes around 1.5 to 3 days to reach the terminal, since Kattupalli is located outside the perimeter of the city, the traffic will come down drastically and it can save a day or two for the exporters, which will lead to price reduction.

At present Chennai Port currently has two terminals, one run by DP World and other one by PSA International. Both the terminal can handle upto two million TEUs a year, but their capacity utilisation is less than the actual capacity. Both the terminals collectively handle around 1.2-1.3 lakh TUEs a month.

Kattupalli can handle upto four lakh containers per annum and they can touch half a million capacity with single berth. The terminal will be operated and maintained by Manila-based port operator International Container Terminal Services Inc. (ICTSI).

The three berth container terminal is part of L&T's around Rs 4,000 crore port-cum-ship building project set up jointly by L&T and Tamil Nadu Industrial Development Corporation (TIDCO) in two phases on a 1,200-acre of land at Kattupalli, about 35-40 kilometers from Chennai, through ‘L&T Shipbuilding Limited' (LTSB), for developing a minor port and building specialised ship, along with a repair unit.

This is what a determined govt can do implementing a infra project,and the reason why exactly we need port-maduravoyal expressway to free up the chennai port.
