India’s port developer Adani Ports & Special Economic Zone (APSEZ), opened a bulk terminal at Tuna Tekra, Kandla Port, with an annual handling capacity of over 20 million tonnes.

The dry bulk cargo handling terminal facilities includes a T shaped jetty with four bulk berths, a vessel handling capacity of 1,00,000 DWT with (-) 16.2 m CD dredged depth and a capacity of 20 MMTPA

“The port facility is our fourth in Gujarat and fifth on the entire western coast. This new facility will play a crucial role in the Make In India campaign. We are now aiming to complete the container terminal project in Chennai in a record time frame,” said Sudipta Bhattacharya, CEO, APSEZ.

APSEZ also operates ports in Mundra, Hazira and Dahej, in Gujarat, Dhamra in Odisha and operates specialized coal handling facilities in Mormugao in Goa, Visakhapatinam in Andhra Pradesh. It is currently setting up a container terminal in Tuticorin, Chennai.
