Jindal Infrastructure’s Bichitrapur port project faces trouble in Orissa

Department of Water Resources, Orissa, has raised concern over a captive deep-sea port proposed at Bichitrapur in Balasore district of Orissa by Jindal Infrastructure.

The department has raised concern over the proposed port’s likely impact on the Subarnarekha river mouth as another commercial port is proposed by Creative Port Development at Kirtania, located within 10-km radius of Bichitrapur. It has sought a detailed study on the impact of developing two ports on the Subarnarekha river mouth. The department had also sought the views of forest and environment department on building the proposed port at Bichitrapur.

JSW had announced to invest Rs 2,238 crore captive deep sea port at Bichitrapur. The company was to invest Rs 550 crore in the Phase I which was scheduled for commissioning by 2013. The company was to invest Rs 750 crore and Rs 938 crore in the Phase II and III respectively. The port’s cargo handling was projected to reach 20 million tpa in the Phase II set to be operational by 2013 and 45 million tpa by 2020.
