India: New Liquid Cargo Jetty to Be Built at JNPT

A new liquid cargo jetty will be built at India’s Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) to provide more berthing space to ships carrying liquid cargo.

The foundation stone for the additional jetty was laid at JNPT in Mumbai on August 9, 2019.

As explained, the project is being launched to cater for the increased demand in the country for handling liquid cargoes like POL, LPG, edible oil, molasses and chemicals.

The value of the project is estimated at Rs 309 crore (USD 43.3 million).

“There is an increased domestic and industrial demand for liquid commodities like LPG etc in the country,” Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi said.

“The present liquid cargo capacity of JNPT is around 6.5 million tonnes per annum (MTPA). The new terminal … will increase this capacity by 4.5 MTPA.  This will help to better fulfill national requirements and be good for the port too,” he added.
