IntroductionNatural harbour40% India‘s Iron ore export and ranks within the first ten leading Iron ore exporting Port of the world.The Port railway system is connected to South Western Railway through which it is also linked to Konkan RailwayThe excellent Inland waterways provided by two rivers, the Zuari and the Mandovi, serve as the main conduits for transportation of iron ore to the Port from hinterland.
Strategic Location• Mormugao Port, a protected open type natural harbour, is situated on magnificent and hospitable coastline on the west of India in the latitude 15˚25’ North and Longitude 73˚48’ East at the mouth of the river ‘Zuari’ in the state of Goa.• The harbour is also protected from the South West monsoon as it has been constructed on the leeward side of Mormugao Headland.
Hinterland Connectivity• Road Transport Mormugao Port is connected through road with the rest of the country through two national highways NH-17 and NH-4A. The NH-4A highway eventually joins with NH-14 which connects Mumbai and Bangalore. The NH-17A highway connects Mormugao to NH-17 at Cortalim.
Water Transport Goa is bestowed with the two rivers viz. Zuari and Mandovi river for inland water transport from the loading jetties near the mines to the Mormugao port having the equal share. Presently there are about more than 450 barges of total capacity of more than 500000T plying in Goan waters for the transport of this iron-ore from mines. All these barges in total make approx. 23500 trips to transport MPT’S iron-ore alone from the mines.
Rail Transport• The broad gauge railway system of the Port serves the general cargo berths. Port railway system is connected to South Western Railway through which it is also linked to the Konkan Railway.• Both these railways together facilitate easy access to the Port from any part of the country through the vast network of broad guage railway system.
