‘Need to establish heavy industries in Belgaum’

Suresh C. Angadi, MP, has urged Union Minister for Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises Anant Geete to establish heavy industries and public sector enterprises in Belgaum district or near Belgaum city to create employment opportunities for educated, skilled, semi-skilled and workers.

Mr. Angadi submitted a memorandum to Mr. Geete recently to impress upon him that Belgaum city was fastest growing city after Bengaluru in Karnataka.

The city nestled on the fringes of Western Ghats and having common boundaries with Maharashtra and Goa, was gifted with natural resources with more than seven major rivers flowing through the district.

It was connected with broad guage railway network, national and state highways, air and sea ports at just 150 kms away.

The district was an educational hub of North Karnataka with 10 engineering colleges, two medical colleges, besides, dental, ayurvedic and homoeopathy colleges. But graduates from these institutions went to other cities and metros in search of jobs.

He said by establishing heavy industries and public sector enterprises close to the city, the centre could boost job prospects and help economic prosperity of the city and district further.

Aequs lays foundation stone of new automotive components plant in Belgaum

MUMBAI: Precision manufacturing firm Aequs (formerly QuEST Global manufacturing) laid the foundation stone of a new automotive components plant today at its 250- acre Special Economic Zone in Belgaum to support its expansion plans in the US and European markets.

The plant which will roll out engine and transmission parts, sub-assemblies, assemblies as well as add machining capacity of over 100,000 hours annually, is expected to be operational from March 2015, a release said.


Aequs specialises in precision machining, sheetmetal fabrication, assembly, forging, and special processing for aerospace, automotive, and oil and gas industries.

"With India having emerged as a major auto component procurement hub for global OEM players, there is a rising thrust on technology innovation and cost optimisation for manufacturers.

With the new plant and our continued expansion plans in this vertical, we are looking to garner significant share of this market opportunity," Aequs Chairman and Chief Executive Aravind Melligeri said in the release.

India's precision engineering exports are expected to more than triple at USD 40 billion from the current USD 12 billion, he said.

Aequs aims to increase its revenues from the automotive business to USD 30 million by 2020, the company said, adding that it is scouting to establish joint ventures to add to its capabilities in this vertical.

"The JV approach to manufacturing will enable us to offer top quality ancillaries and sub-assemblies to global customers at a very competitive prices as we can access latest world class technologies through our collaborations," Melligeri said.

Integration of automotive manufacturing facilities at the Aequs SEZ would also enable it to benefit from central and state government incentives such as tax holiday on corporate income for 15 years, VAT, and stamp duty exemption and shared services turnkey support, among others, the release said.

Aequs's automotive customers include global majors such as Bosch, Jacobs Vehicle Systems and Bosch Rexroth.

Need for Auto-SEZ in Belgaum emphasised

‘District’s automobile body building units require a boost’

Belgaum is not only known for its sugarcane and sugar production but also for its foundry cluster and a large number of automobile body building units. But the city’s potential and available infrastructure have not been fully exploited to boost the sector-based automobile industry.

Of late, the Belgaum Chamber of Commerce and Industries (BCCI) has been emphasising the need for establishing an Auto-SEZ (Special Economic Zone).

BCCI president Dilip K. Tilvi told The Hindu here that the city had potential for establishing an Auto-SEZ near Auto Nagar where there were more than 1,000 automobile workshops and garages. Those apart, there were a large number of automobile body building units, manufacturers of crankshafts and other auto components.

He said that Belgaum was a growing economy and the best among the tier II cities in the State because of infrastructure which included a container depot, a tool room centre, water sources, at least eight industrial areas and five estates, educational and healthcare facilities, and air/train/bus connectivity with the nearest sea port in Goa and Karwar, both at a distance of about 150 km.

The former BCCI president Rajendra Harkuni said that in addition to electricity supply from State-established companies, the city houses TATA Power Limited Company with a capacity to generate 81.3 MW of power. The city is also known for manufacturing heavy machine tools. The government has drawn up a plan to implement 24 x 7 drinking water supply scheme covering the 58 municipal wards in the city.

Belgaum is also bestowed with an educated and trained human talent, playing a significant role in generating wealth in various IT-enabled domains and other industrial sectors.

The establishment of an Auto-SEZ would ensure rapid economic growth of the city, which the government wants to develop as the second capital of the State, even as it has established the Suvarna Vidhana Soudha to hold the annual winter sessions of the legislature. There are also plans to attract investments from private players which would boost the promotion of automobile sector, generate substantial employment opportunities for the educated and skilled human resource and also create indirect employment opportunities to others in and around the city.

The government should look into the potential of the city afresh and take steps to establish an Auto-SEZ, he said.

New hardware startups like Sensegiz, Aurava and others mushroom as support through crowdfunding grows

While IoT startup SenseGiz has proven to be a leading player in the technology product space, 3D printing and drone technology startups are not far behind.

SenseGiz bagged Samsung's attention for STAR, a gadget, similar to the technology giant's Galaxy Gear smartwatch, that controls smartphones by calling contacts, launching apps, taking pictures and more. STAR, priced at Rs 9000, has received 1,000 orders globally and is slated for commercial use by end-November. The startup is now in talks with investors overseas.

"Indian consumers are not ready yet for products from such startups. They want to buy products from big names. That has to change," said Rajesh Kumar, CEO, IndyGo Co, a Japan-based investment firm, who will be investing $50,000 (Rs 30 lakh) to $100,000 (Rs 60 lakh) in the Belgaum-based startup in the next few months.

SenseGiz raised about $12,000 (Rs 7 lakh) for its tracker device FIND through crowdfunding platform Kickstarter in May that it has started shipping on a small scale. It expects to ship 50,000 pieces internationally this year.

Belgaum-made sensors helped position Mars orbiter successfully

Nagaraj Tuppad, Belgaum, Sep 24, 2014, DHNS

It was a proud moment for the city on Wednesday as a company based here was part of the successful Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM). The Servo Controls Aerospace India Private Limited (SCAIPL) provided the most crucial position sensors for MOM.

SCAIPL, a company which manufactures valves for civil aircraft is a key supplier to the aerospace and defence sectors. It is a prominent vendor for the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO).

Speaking to Deccan Herald, SCAIPL Managing Director Deepak Dhadoti said that the position sensors help in sensing the position of the satellite and put it into the orbit. “Insertion is a crucial phenomenon and India succeeded in putting the satellite in the orbit around Mars.”


Dhadoti said, “The position sensor is manufactured in collaboration with First Mark Aerospace, USA. The component was indigenously developed in Belgaum. Position sensors have cryogenic application to work at extremely low temperature of less than -200 degree Centigrade.”

“The company has provided 35 units of position sensors, which cost nearly Rs 5 lakh for the MOM. Similar sensors were provided for the earlier Chandrayaan mission,” he added.

Future plan

As part of its future plan, SCAIPL is contemplating to manufacture the hydraulic actuation system of the fuel measuring system in rockets. Absence of such a system resulted in the failure of the Mars mission undertaken by Japan, he said.

The Mars mission intends to find the presence of methane, a vital element which helps reveal the existence of life on the Red Planet. The goal of such space missions is also to explore fuel deposits and the possibilities of transporting such fuel to earth amidst growing concern over depletion of fossil fuels, he stated.

Aequs and Magellan Aerospace JV to expand Belgaum facility

Aerospace Processing India (API), a joint venture (JV) of Aequs and Magellan Aerospace is India’s first company to have Tartaric Sulphuric Acid (TSA) anodizing line approved by Airbus.

Aequs, one of the fastest growing aerospace manufacturing companies in India, and Magellan Aerospace, a global aerospace leader, today announced plans for an expansion to their JV plant in Aequs SEZ at Belgaum, India as a measure to further strengthen their capabilities in the growing global aerospace market.

The API plant expansion is aimed at enhancing aerospace special processes. The expanded facility will mainly cater to processes such as Tartaric Sulphuric Acid (TSA) anodizing and Cadmium plating for the aerospace OEMs.

The existing API plant located at Aequs SEZ provides aerospace surface treatment facilities which are not readily available in India. API is uniquely positioned to provide metal finishing treatment services for both the export market and the domestic market in India.

Aravind Melligeri, Chairman and CEO, Aequs said, “We are delighted to expand and enhance our seven-year partnership with Magellan for special processing in aerospace through this new capability at API. This will also add to India’s expertise in the aerospace manufacturing sector and help us grow the aerospace market in the country.”

“API is a trailblazer in India in aerospace special processing. This TSA certification from Airbus will not only add to its considerable range of capabilities but also enhance API’s ability to deliver finished components with short lead times. In addition, we will now be able to bid for global contracts that call for TSA and Cadmium plating,” added Melligeri.

The plant expansion will be operational by January 2015. The new TSA line is a newly developed technology to replace the more hazardous traditional Chromic Acid anodizing.

Commenting on Airbus approval for TSA line, Phillip Underwood, President, Magellan Aerospace said, “The expansion of the API processing facility, and the addition of the TSA line, is a strategic investment that complements Magellan’s growing presence in India. Magellan’s approach to providing customers innovative solutions is based on balancing investment, technology, and capability to increase the value of our offerings. With soaring aerospace growth, this expansion of our capabilities in the Indian market will ensure that we are prepared to meet the growing needs of our customers with the cost-effective and quality solutions that they have come to expect.”

According to Airbus’ latest market forecast, Indian carriers will require 1,290 new passenger aircraft valued at US$190 billion between now and 2032 to meet the surging annual demand. The Indian annual passenger traffic growth rate is 8.6 per cent, a figure well above the regional Asia Pacific average growth rate of 6.1 per cent and the world average 4.7 percent.

North Karnataka exporters urged to use MPT

PANAJI: Speaking at a trade meet in Belgaum recently, MPT chairman Cyril George has exhorted the exporters from the Northern region of Karnataka to channelise their EXIM trade through Mormugao port.

George emphasised that they stand at a geographical advantage since the port is located only 165km from the Belgaum hinterland.

"Once the dry port concept which we are planning is established in Belgaum it would benefit the traders to aggregate their export cargoes and later transport the same to Mormugao either by road or rail for export and vice-versa.
This would not only save on time but will be very cost effective to the manufacturers since the distance between Belgaum and Goa would be comparatively less than JNPT or Mumbai, which is the present port of shipment for many exporters," said George.


George lead the three member MPT delegation assisted by Y R Belegal, traffic manager, and Jerome Clement, manager (marketing).

Elaborating further, George assured the exporters that the dry port concept would be a reality soon in the near future.

Speaking further at the trade meet, which was well attended by members of the Belgaum chamber of commerce & industry, George highlighted the salient features of the Mormugao port and the up-graded infrastructure facilities by way of power point presentation.

A power point presentation was also given by Rakesh Unny, director of Integrated Sealand Services, Vasco, on the dedicated coastal container service operated by them between Mormugao port and JNPT.

"MPT which was earlier seen as a mono-commodity port has now changed its image and status to a multi-commodity port and is seen as a major catalyst for the development of trade and industry in Goa and its adjoining region," concluded George.

The trade meet was well attended by prominent exporters from the North Karnataka region, including representatives of Concor, Hindalco and Machado & sons, agents & stevedores pvt ltd. Dilip Tilve, president of the BCCI, and Rajendra Kumar Harkuni, the past president of BCCI, also addressed the trade meet. Representatives from the shipping and logistics industry from Goa too attended the trade meeting and interacted with the exporters of Belgaum to tap the business potential from across the border.
