Dhamra Port expansion of phase -II

The Dhamra Port Company Ltd (DPCL) is likely to raise the capacity of the port by 75 million tonne taking the total capacity to 100 million tonne mark.

This will be the phase II expansion set by the company, once the land allotment is over. The company will require additional land for the proposed expansion, which is not appear tenable as per government. However, this will be considered by the state government on the basis of a norm (thumb rule) being formulated.

As per the norms,first, the port has to achieve capacity utilization of 70% of Phase-I in accordance with clause 4.4 of the concession agreement. Second, it has to obtain environment clearance from Union ministry of environment & forests (MoEF) for the proposed expansion. Third, DPCL also has to get a no-objection certificate from the National Green Tribunal in the matter of expansion of port beyond the limits of the port.

Moreover, there is also a speculation over stake sale by the port promoters-L&T and Tata Steel, which could further delay the expansion.
