Japanese firms prefer Kattupalli terminal to Chennai port

They find roads leading to L&T facility less congested

Quote:
It was supposed to be a trial run for a Karnataka-based Japanese automobile major and one of the world’s largest shipping companies at the L&T Port in Kattupalli.

The Japanese automobile firm, whose name Port officials were reluctant to reveal, tried it for the first time, while it was the third attempt for NYK Lines. They are now eyeing Kattupalli International Container Terminal (KICT), following efficient handling of containers in the last eight days.

According to the sources, the Japanese automobile major decided to utilise KICT, about 30 km from here, instead of the Chennai Port. One of the reasons is that officials were able to reach KICT from Bangalore ahead of schedule and cargoes loaded/unloaded without any hassle after completing Customs formalities.

On any given day, the container-laden truck would have been parked either at the Central Warehousing Corporation depot in Madhavaram for Customs seal verification and on roads leading to the Chennai Port for hours together, the sources said.

Talking to The Hindu, the company official said: “The construction of Ennore-Manali Road helped our cause to reach the port on time, otherwise our drivers would have been forced to stay put on several places, including Inner Ring Road junction, MFL junction, Ernavur junction and before the Chennai Port zero gate. Here, it was a hassle-free entry with simple procedures to follow.”

On Thursday, NYK Lines berthed its second cargo vessel IZUMO at Kattupalli as part of Thailand-Chennai Express (TCX) Service. The vessel carried 164 twenty-foot equivalent units of import containers and 32 export boxes. The maiden vessel ‘IWAKI’ carried similar number of import and export boxes. IZUMO will now sail to Port Klang, Singapore and Laem Chabang (Thailand). The third vessel of TCX service will arrive here on June 27.

NYK Lines officials flew from Mumbai to supervise the operations. While expressing satisfaction, they said a decision regarding regular sailing would be made soon.

An L&T Port official said: “Our facility is ready in all sense. We have the latest equipment to handle the export-import activities and sufficient space for laden-vehicles and containers. We are having dialogues with the shipping lines and the customers urging them to support our Port.”

Mentioning that a tobacco manufacturer and car-makers in and around Sriperumbudur had evinced keen interest to use the new terminal, the Port officials said the cargo flow would increase as soon as the Customs grants permission for more Container Freight Stations to use the new facility.

^Toyota initially was looking at Ennore. But Katupalli container terminal is up and running already.

Tough days ahead for ChPT.
1. Unused iron ore berths.
2. Coal and other dirty cargo shifted to Ennore.
3. Congestion at container terminal gates. And now competition from Katupalli.
4. Access restrictions for car trailers inside city during day. Already Renault Nissan and Ford are using Ennore.

Even if EMRIP is finished congestion ill reduce only by half maybe.
ChPT has one strategic advantage that the other two ports currently lack. That is rail connectivity. A rapid increase in container train services from ChPT is the only way to bypass congestion.

Ennore Port, Indian Oil to sign deal for LNG plant



Quote:
The project will address piped gas deficit in South

CHENNAI, JUNE 17:
Ennore Port Ltd will soon sign an agreement with Indian Oil Corporation Ltd to transfer 132 acres of port land to the corporation. This is to kick-start the Rs 4,320-crore liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant at Ennore to supply piped gas in the southern region.

Southern India does not have adequate supply of piped gas and the project will address this gap.

The next step will be to sign a commercial agreement with IOC to include details such as revenue share and port-related charges.

“We hope to sign the agreement in two-three months,” said a senior EPL official who did not want to be named. “IOC is considering the option of signing the two agreements together,” he said.

Last month, the Union Cabinet approved the leasing of land to IOC, which will set up an LNG storage and regassification plant with a capacity of 5 million tonne per annum (mtpa). Ennore Port will lease the land to a joint venture led by IOC for 30 years.

IOC had already signed an agreement with the Tamil Nadu Industrial Development Corporation (Tidco) for the project.

Once the agreements are signed, IOC will start construction of wharf, pipeline, regassification plant, tie up with gas suppliers and bring gas liners to Ennore. IOC wanted the plant to start functioning in the next three years, he said.

The project had been under consideration at least for over a decade, initially by Tidco as part of its Petrochem Park project and later by Ennore port. After many hurdles, the project is taking shape, the official said.

Ennore will be the fourth LNG terminal on the East Coast. The state-owned gas utility Gas Authority of India is building a facility at Kakinada and Petronet LNG Ltd is setting up a 5 mtpa facility at Gangavaram – both in Andhra Pradesh.

Royal Dutch Shell also plans to set up an LNG terminal at Kakinada. Shell and Kakinada Seaports last month achieved two important milestones towards implementing the Andhra LNG import terminal project. They submitted the draft Environmental Impact Assessment report and signed the Port Services Agreement.

The project was conceived by Shell and its partners in 2011. The technical scope development and associated execution plan is nearing its completion. The project is progressing according to plan and is on track to potentially becoming the first LNG import terminal on the East Coast.

The terminal will start with a capacity of up to 5 mtpa.

Port Connectivity to help grow North Chennai

Quote:
The Tamil Nadu Government has set the ball rolling to construct the Northern Port Access Road, which will be an important link connecting both Ennore and L&T Katupalli ports with the National Highway 5. CDM Smith has been appointed as consultant to update a detailed project report which Wilbur Smith had prepared in 2008. The report will update the feasibility report and fix the alignment with a new topographic survey, according to the State Government. With both Katupalli and Ennore ports looking at handling large volumes of containers in future, this road will be crucial for quick evacuation of boxes from the ports. The present link of Tiruvottiyur-Ponneri-Pancheti (TPP) and a link through Valur may not be sufficient to handle the future traffic. Also, with Ennore port set to emerge as a major hub for car exports, the new link road could be used by automobile manufacturers located in Sriperumbur and Oragadam.

Besides strengthening connectivity to the two ports, the project will boost industrial growth in North Chennai, according to an official of the Ennore Port. The total length of this road connecting Ennore Port to Thatchur will be 21.15 km and the length of the Thiruvottiyur Ponneri Pancheti link road will be 4.35 km. The Tamil Nadu Road Development Company Ltd observed that since 2008, a lot of changes in topography by way of new structures and land development has happened all along the proposed road alignment. The proposed new road will connect the Northern Gate of Ennore Port and Thatchur on NH-5 with an additional spur road for connecting to the TPP Road. This will also cater to the needs of the recently developed L&T Katupalli port-cum-shipyard.

No headway in ChPT container terminal project




Quote:
Contrasting responses marked the meetings convened by Ennore Port and Chennai Port for choosing the companies that will build mega container terminals. It was a full house at Ennore Port, but a no-show for Chennai Port.

While the pre-bid meeting organised by Ennore Port Ltd (EPL) — for seeking clarifications on several issues prior to submission of Request for Qualification (RFQ) process — received a good response, with seven companies taking part in it, none of the short-listed companies turned up at a meeting convened by Chennai Port Trust (ChPT) to resubmit their requests for proposals (RFP).

EPL is about 30 km away from ChPT. L&T Kattupalli Port, which is adjacent to Ennore Port, also has a container terminal with an annual capacity of 1.2 million tonnes.

Interestingly, in their maiden attempts both EPL and ChPT finalised a bidder for their projects. EPL terminated the contract as the private terminal operator could not get funds on time, while the terminal operator said it was unviable.

In the case of ChPT, in the first round Adani Port Special Economic Zone (APSEZ) emerged as the sole bidder and in the second round, Vadinar Oil Terminal and Essar Port and Terminal Ltd (VOTL) became the successful bidder.

However, ChPT rejected their bids on the grounds that the royalty they offered was very low.

Having lost nearly 30 months, ChPT officials then called all the seven shortlisted players last month to submit their proposals. But they failed to respond, citing the delay in the launch of a vital project – the Chennai Port-Maduravoyal elevated four-lane link road.

Talking to The Hindu , an Ennore Port official said: “We had overwhelming response with more than 35 people from seven companies attending it. They sought clarifications on subjects such as formation of a joint venture company, inducting foreign firms as partners and obtaining auditors’ certificate. We have extended the last date for submission of RFQ to July 25.”

A top ChPT official attributed the absence of interest to the delay in laying road connectivity between Maduravoyal and Chennai Port. Another reason was the delay in completing the Ennore-Manali Road Improvement Project (EMRIP).

“A board meeting will be held on Thursday to decide the next course of action, as we had invited all the short-listed players twice, but were unable to get any response. As compared to EPL, we are one step ahead and hope we can start the project on time.”

The ChPT has decided to approach the short-listed players once again to restructure the package in such a way to make it attractive for everyone to take part in it.

Why would a ship wait for 2 days in the sea to get a berth when the next port is free.

The port is locked on all sizes inside the city. The amount of trucks which stands for miles together to get inside and outside the port.

There is no scope for expansion in the project. Any effort will be economically unfeasible. This reflects in the bids submitted where the PVT parties feel it will have no room for development.

Better they move the container traffic to ennore. Free the port to export cars and clean cargoes.

If the space is freed up it can be used for Cruise berthing. Chennai will be the only city in east coast to host this facility and can dramatically change the tourist earning for the city.

Trucks cannot enter the city in the day and have to wait till night to enter . They clog the in and out gates.

The trains carrying the containers are caught between the every busy calcutta line and Mumbai line. there are only 3 lines between Basin bridge and Beach station . So they have for hours together.

In shipping business time is money. They have to load and clear the ships as soon as possible. But due to congestion they have to wait for 2-3 days to leave the port.

Ennore box terminal bidders seek better connectivity



Quote:
Nine prospective bidders, including global shipping majors, today attended the pre-bid meeting of the Rs 1,460-crore container terminal project at Ennore port.

The top concern for the bidders was road and rail connectivity to the port for speedy evacuation of containers.

Companies such as Port of Singapore Authority, DP World (both operate container terminal at the nearby Chennai port), A.P. Moller and Adani have shown interest in the project, said a senior official of the Ennore Port who was present in the meeting but did not want to be named.

In the meeting, the port officials assured the bidders that by June next, the Tiruvottiyur-Ponneri-Panjeti road will be ready. This will provide connectivity from the port to National Highway 5 connecting Chennai and Kolkata. Similarly, the port committed that the railway connectivity would be provided north of the container terminal.

The bidders want timely completion of the connectivity projects. “We have given the commitment, and they were happy with the explanation,” he said.

RFQ SUBMISSION

The next stage will be opening of the Request for Qualification (RFQ) or technical qualification. On request from the bidders, the date of RFQ submission has been extended by 10 days to July 22, he said.

The project will have a capacity to handle 1.4 million twenty foot equivalent units. The port had earlier selected container terminal operator Bay of Bengal Container Terminal’s consortium to operate the terminal. But, the contract was terminated in October over delays in finalising funds.

Depending up on the business climate, the private player will decide on how to go about developing the new container terminal. It can be in one phase or two, the official said.

The port lost nearly two years to build the terminal, only to witness the development of a terminal at the adjacent Kattupalli Port by Larsen & Toubro.

Container terminal project at Chennai port may be scrapped

Quote:
The Rs 3,700-crore mega container terminal project at Chennai port is likely to be scrapped in the present form due to poor response from bidders.

At a board meeting on Thursday, the trustees of the Chennai Port Trust asked the port’s management to chalk out a revised plan quickly.

Essar group was the only company interested in the project. However, it quoted 5.15 per cent as revenue share for the port. This was shot down by the trustees stating it was low for such a large project. The port gave an extension till June 26 for a revised bid from companies. However, none of the bidders showed interest. Even Essar did not increase its bid, said two trustees who did not want to be named.

A senior port official said that when DP World and Port of Singapore Authority (the two companies which are currently operating container terminals) offered over 35 per cent as revenue share, it will not be feasible to accept 5.15 per cent.

The port trust touted the mega terminal as one of its prestigious projects. The Union Cabinet sanctioned the project in 2010. The plan was to have two new breakwaters (total length 4.5 km), and a continuous quay length of 2 km, which would ultimately have had 22-metre ‘alongside depth’ to handle ultra-large container ships of over 15,000 20-foot equivalent unit capacity and 400 m long.

The terminal was planned to be built in ‘build, own and transfer’ model. The cost of dredging, floating crafts and navigational aids — estimated at Rs 561 crore — was to be borne by the port trust. The private operator was to invest on berth and breakwater construction, reclamation of back-up area, handling equipment and other landside infrastructure at a cost of Rs 3,125 crore.

There are indications that the port may develop the terminal in a phased manner, as is being done at Ennore Port.

“Given the market conditions, we have been continuously saying that the mega container terminal will not be a viable project. This was evident from the poor response from the bidders,” said a trustee.

The board want the port to either look at developing a smaller container terminal, or at options like building a multi-purpose cargo handling berth. Since the space allotted for the project already has environmental clearance, the port can come up with an alternative and feasible proposal quickly, he said.

Mega container terminal projects: Good response for Ennore Port, poor for Chennai

Chennai Port working on alternatives to make up for revenue loss



Quote:
In a bid to recover the revenue lost from the loss of iron ore and coal volumes, Chennai Port is transforming its berths that previously used to handle coal and iron ore to now handle alternative dry bulk & break bulk cargoes.

The Port, one of the oldest major ports in the country, is on a drive to improve the productivity and handling of other cargoes like food grains, fertilizers among others, and has also stepped up their marketing efforts to recover the loss to its top-line.

In October 2011, the Madras High Court has banned the Port from handling dusty cargoes like iron ore and coal on grounds that it pollutes the environment. Iron ore handling had already reduced by then because of the Supreme Court order to ban on production of the mineral in Karnataka. These cargoes have now shifted to Ennore Port, originally conceived as the satellite port of Chennai to handle the dusty cargoes.

"Over the last few years, Chennai Port has lost about 18 million tonnes of cargo comprising about 10 million tonnes of coal and 8 million tonnes of iron ore due to reasons beyond the control of the Port," said a spokesperson from Chennai Port. "There has been a substantial drop in revenue due to loss of iron ore and coal which is estimated to be around Rs 250 crores," he added.

The Central government-owned Port had filed a Special Leave Petition (SLP) in the Supreme Court and an order is awaited that will decide the future of handling that cargo. "The Port has increased its marketing efforts and regular interaction is being held with the Trade to quickly sort out any problems and improve the cargo volumes. With all these efforts, the port has continued to be a profit-making entity though the profits have reduced," said the spokesperson.

At the moment, Chennai Port is in the process of implementing a number of projects that will enable their iron ore berth Bharathi Dock II and Jawahar Dock East which is used to handle coal, to handle alternative dry bulk & break bulk cargoes like food-grains, dolomite, fertilizers etc. The Port is also planning to improve their productivity by expanding their mechanical handling equipment; a dry dock will be developed at Timber Pond/Boat basin of the Port.

Technical consultants have been appointed to prepare the feasibility reports for these projects. Once the reports are ready, private developers will be invited to develop the projects under the Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode within this financial year. These measures are aimed at optimizing the existing Port facilities, increasing cargo volumes and improving the financial of the Port.

13.5 ha allotted for cargo terminal
http://www.thehindu.com/news/nationa...?homepage=true

The Ennore Port Ltd (EPL) has taken the first step towards constructing a multi-purpose cargo terminal with an annual capacity of two million tonnes. This is being planned in addition to the proposed Rs.1,270-crore mega container terminal.

According to the proposal, EPL has earmarked 13.5 hectares for development of the multi-purpose cargo terminal in public-private-partnership mode. It will be located between the iron ore terminal and the proposed mega container terminal.

The length of the new cargo berth will be 270 metres with 15 metres draught.

The proposed terminal will have two mobile cranes and a six-fork lift truck to handle clean cargo such as timber, granite, machinery, project cargo, steel, cement and fertilizers.

Cement and fertilizers will be handled only if they are moved through a closed conveyer system.

Costing Rs.151 crore, the terminal will be developed by a private party in 24 months on a Develop, Build, Finance, Operate and Transfer basis, for which EPL proposes to distribute requests for qualifications to the interested parties within a week’s time. The last date for submission of technical bids is August 28.

A Port official said a pre-application conference would be held on August 12, in which queries relating to the proposed terminal will be answered. EPL plans to award the contract to the successful bidder by December.

“We already have three terminals to handle automobiles, liquefied natural gas and coal separately. Handling of iron ore has been banned. The mega container terminal is planned to handle containers alone, for which we are in the process of receiving technical bids from interested parties,” he added.

Kannan sir, Ennore is owned by CG right? I thought the EPL model was better than the Port trust model of Chennai.

Japanese team to inspect infrastructure at ports




Quote:
A team of Japanese officials accompanied by various stakeholders will visit the Ennore and Chennai ports on Thursday to review infrastructure facilities needed for the proposed Chennai-Bangalore Industrial Corridor (CBIC).

The visit assumes significance as Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will be meeting the captains of the Indian industry on July 29 to revive industrial economy that will include a discussion on the CBIC.

According to the sources, the team members along with representatives of State government and the Railways will review CBIC, Ennore-Manali Road Improvement Project (EMRIP) that connects Chennai and Ennore ports and road improvement work leading to Ennore Port.

“It is not the first time that the Japanese investors are showing interest in infrastructure projects in North Chennai. If EMRIP had progressed this far, it is due to the pressure from the Japanese investors and regular visits by the PM’s Adviser T.K.A. Nair,” said an Ennore Port official.

Most of the Japanese firms are located in and around Manali Industrial Area. Toshiba JSW Turbine and Generator, which is in the process of exporting heavy equipment weighing over 500 tonnes from July 2014, has been seeking a new Road Over Bridge (ROB) at Athipattu, as the existing one is weak.

Following requests from the Japanese investors, Tamil Nadu Road Development Company floated a tender for the construction of RoB on the North Chennai Thermal Power Station (NCTPS) Road. The cost of the tender is Rs. 32.67 crore and the work had to be completed in 10 months. A couple of firms responded to the tender. The financial bids will be opened next week and the contract will be awarded to the successful bidder soon. Similarly, the State government is in the process of awarding the contract for strengthening, widening and realignment of NCTPS Road very soon.
