Essar’s Hazira Port Ferry Terminal Ready for Operations

Essar Bulk Terminal Ltd (EBTL), a part of Essar Ports, has completed works on a new passenger ferry terminal that will connect the Hazira Port in Surat and Bandra-Worli Sea Link in Mumbai.

Starting November 15, SSR Marine Services Pvt. Ltd will operate the Cruise Mumbai Maiden, a passenger ferry vessel with a capacity of 200 passengers, between Surat and Mumbai.

The Hazira-based terminal will also lead to ferry services being offered on other routes in the future, the company said.

EBTL operates a 50 MTPA dry bulk cargo terminal at the same port.

The company took charge of designing and constructing the facility, which includes both marine structures, like landing platform, passenger walkway and floating pontoon, as well as shore-based facilities.

“I congratulate my team for building the passenger terminal in just eight months after receiving GMB’s permission to initiate this project. It was a challenging task that tested our technical expertise and project execution capabilities,” Capt. Subhas Das, CEO-EBTL, said.
