Transcript of "Vizhinjam way forward sep 7 2012"

  1. 1. Vizhinjam  Deep  water  Port  Project  A  New  Vision  and  Way  Forward   1  
  2. 2. Agenda    •  Revisi>ng  the  Market  •  Core  ABrac>ons  of  the  Project  •  Modifica>ons  to  the  Master  Plan  •  Development  Structure  •  Expanded  Government  Support   2  
  3. 3. Market  Study  -­‐  1    •  Current   study   by   Drewry/IFC   under-­‐es>mates   the   poten>al  of  the  port   •  Very   conserva>ve   projec>on   of   container   transshipment   volumes  even  aPer  assuming  deep  rate  discounts     •  Benefits  of  deep  draP  and  strategic  loca>on  to  act  as  single   stop  for  India  for  10,000+  TEU  class  ships  not  factored  in   •  Vizhinjam   has   been   posi>oned   as   “just   another   container   port”  and  not  a  regional  transshipment  hub   •  Lessons   of   successful   “transshipment-­‐only”   hubs,   such   as   Salalah  (99.5%  transshipment)  or  Tanjung  Pelapas  (95.8%),   not  incorporated  into  market  forecasts   •  Poten>al   for   cargo   such   as   LNG   and   coal   ignored,   ci>ng   the   need  to  be  a  “green  port”     •  Poten>al   for   deep   water   shipyard   not   factored   in   despite   clear  proposal  from  CSL   3  
  4. 4. Market  Study  -­‐  2    •  Further  traffic  drivers  need  to  be  taken  into  account:   •  Study  cost-­‐savings  of  using  10,000+  TEU  vessels  and  use  as   a   strategic   driver   for   transshipment   traffic;   18   m   depth   to   be  used  as  USP   •  Posi>on  Vizhinjam  as  “the  one  stop  in  India”  for  6th  and  7th   genera3on   ships”   –   aBract   a   line   such   as   APM   or   MSC   that   typically   call   at   one   transshipment   hub   per   country   with   minimum  devia>on  from  the  shipping  lanes   •  Kerala   has   a   significant   power   deficit   –   poten>al   for   LNG   terminal  and  LNG  power  plant   •  Shipyard   and   bunkering   facility   to   be   included   in   market   study   4  
  5. 5. Market  Study  -­‐  3    •  Govt.  of  India  has  proposed  revision  of  SEZ  rules  •  Single-­‐sector/Port  based  SEZs  will  need  only  40  hectares/100   acres  as  opposed  to  100  hectares/250  acres  •  Mul>product   SEZs   will   need   only   250   hectares/625   acres   as   opposed  to  1000  hectares/2500  acres  •  Significant  dis-­‐con>guity  may  be  allowed  for  large  SEZs  as  long   as  clear  connec>ons  can  be  established  •  The   Vizhinjam   market   study   should   now   factor   in   at   least   a   Port-­‐based   SEZ;   necessary   for   exemp>on   from   Customs   for   transshipment  cargo;  precedent  established  at  Vallarpadam  •  Poten>al  for  Mul>-­‐product  SEZ  to  be  studied  –  land  available   in  the  Southern  (Poovar)  and  Eastern  parts  of  district   5  
  6. 6. Vizhinjam  Has  to  be  Developed  as  a  World-­‐class  port  because  it….    •  Is  Strategically  Located  •  Has  Global  Scale  •  Has  the  Lowest  Opera>ng  Costs  •  Can  be  the  Gateway  to  South  India   6  
  7. 7. Strategic  Loca>on   •  Vizhinjam  is  less  than  10  nau>cal  miles  from   the  Suez/Gulf-­‐Malacca  shipping  lane   •  Closest  Indian  port  to  30%  of  world  sea  traffic   •  Best  located  port-­‐of-­‐call    in  India  for  container   ships,  cruise  vessels  and  tankers   •  Access  to  large  hinterland  area  in  South  India   •  Also  ideal  for  ship  repair  and  bunkering   facili>es   7  Actual  photo  of  a  supertanker  sailing  close  off   the  Vizhinjam  shore,  sans  dredging  
  8. 8. Global  Scale   •  Site  has  a  natural  draP  of  18-­‐23  m   •  With  minimal  capital  dredging,  the  project  will  be   the  only  container  terminal  in  India  capable  of   handling  container  ships  of  >  12,000  TEUs   •  Rapid  increase  in  container  ship  size  –  latest   genera>on  will  carry  up  to  18,000  TEUs   •  Economies  of  scale  will  allow  for  the  lowest   logis>cs  costs   •  Ideal  loca>on  for  container  transhipment  terminal  16   8  
  9. 9. Compe>>ve  Opera>ng  Costs   •  Vizhinjam    needs  next  to  nil  maintenance   dredging  to  maintain  18-­‐20  m  draP   •  Compe>ng  ports  spend  hundreds  of  Millions  of   dollars  a  year  to  maintain  even  14  m  of  draP   •  Vizhinjam  has  full  flexibility  to  set  tariffs  to   aBract  business;  major  Indian  ports  are   constrained  by  regulators   •  New  workforce;  no  legacy  unioniza>on   9  
  10. 10. Gateway  to  South  India  •  Within  18-­‐24  hours  road/ rail  transit  from  Vizhinjam:   •  120  million  consumers   •  $  180  Bn  of  GSDP   •  Bangalore,  Chennai,   Coimbatore,  Tu>corin  and   Tirunelveli  •  Within  36-­‐48  hours  road/ rail  distance  from  Vizhinjam:   •  220  Million  consumers   •  $  300  Bn  of  GSDP   •  Hyderabad,  Vizag  and  Goa   10  
  11. 11. Capturing  the  Hinterland  •  To   assume   that   the   hinterland   for   Vizhinjam   is   constrained   between   those   of   Tu>corin   and   Ernakulam   is   to   incorrectly   concede   that   Vizhinjam   cannot   import/export   cargo   at   lower   seaborne   costs   because  it  can  handle  bigger  ships;    •  Total  transport  costs  =  sea  transit  +  land  transit  costs  •  Vizhinjam  can  move  cargo  at  rates  30-­‐50%  cheaper  than  compe>ng   ports  because  it  can  handle  much  bigger  ships  –  a  12,000  TEU  vessel   Vs  a  6000  TEU  vessel  •  Logis>cs   firms   will   quickly   shiP   to   the   lowest   total   cost   op>on   as   long  as  land  transit  can  be  made  cost-­‐efficient  and  fast  •  Vizhinjam  can  also  match,  if  not  beat,  exis>ng  ports’  handling  >mes   by  minimizing  conges>on  and  turn-­‐around  >me  for  ships  •  Such  shiPs  in  hinterland  cargo  are  already  being  seen  in  the  case  of   efficient,   deep   water   ports   such   as   Mundra,   Gangavaram   and   Ennore  •  However  world-­‐class  road-­‐rail  connec>vity  is  absolutely  cri>cal   11  
  12. 12. Further  Development  Prospects   •  Vizhinjam  has  significant  poten>al  to  develop  into  a   premier  cruise  port   •  300  cruise  ships  transit  on  the  nearby  shipping  lanes  annually   •  Trivandrum  is  already  a  top  tourist  des>na>on   •  Cochin  Shipyard  Ltd.  has  already  announced  plans   to  set  up  a  VLCC-­‐class  ship  repair  and  building  yard   at  Vizhinjam   •  Poten>al  for  LNG  terminal  and  power  plant;     significant  energy  demand  in  South  India   12  
  13. 13. LNG  as  a  Key  Energy  Source  -­‐  1  •  Kerala  is  currently  facing  an  acute  power  shortage   •  Current   genera>on   of   about   2500   MW   is   unable   to   meet   demand   of   about  3300  MW   •  Current  genera>on  is  mostly  hydel  and  is  at  the  mercy  of  the  weather   •  Opposi>on  to  coal  and  nuclear  plants;  shortage  of  land  •  Demand  is  expected  to  hit  6000-­‐7500  MW  by  2020   Supply  shortall  •  Minimal   addi>on   expected;   MW   for   KKNPP   and   gas   sta>ons   8000   associated   with   Petronet   6000   LNG  terminal   4000  •  Supply   gap   of   at   least   2000   2000   MW  by  2020   0   Current  State   Current   Demand   Supply   Demand   Es>mate   -­‐2020   Source:  18th  EPS  –  CERC;  WB;  KSEB   13  
  14. 14. LNG  as  a  Key  Energy  Source  •  Liquefied   Natural   Gas   is   gaining   prominence   world-­‐wide   as   the   fossil-­‐ fuel  of  choice  •  LNG  is  cleaner  as  a  fuel  than  coal  •  Cost   of   power   produced   is   comparable   to   coal,   with   a   global   drop   in   LNG  prices  due  to  new  supply  in  Australia,  Africa  and  the  US  •  LNG   power   plants   are   much   more   compact   than   coal-­‐fired   power   sta>ons  –  40-­‐50  acres  of  a  1000  MW  gas  power  plant  Vs  400  acres  for  a   coal-­‐fired  plant  •  LNG  is  also  much  easier  to  handle  as  a  fuel  –  lower  volumes/MW  and  it   can  be  moved  via  pipelines  •  Natural  gas  can  also  power  vehicles  •  LNG  power  plants  are  cheaper  (per  MW)  and  faster  to  permit  and  build  •  In  short,  LNG  is  the  ideal  op>on  to  solve  Kerala’s  power  crisis   14

  20. 20. LNG  import  via  Vizhinjam  •  The   bulk   of   India’s   LNG   demand   will   be   met   via   imports   –   the   country’s   only  major  NG  source  –  the  KG  basin  –  has  been  underperforming  •  Major  suppliers  will  be  Qatar,  Australia,  Africa  (Mozambique)  and,  possibly   at  a  later  stage,  the  US  •  Vizhinjam  is  the  closest  port  for  imports  from  Australia,  Africa  and  North   America  (via  Malacca/Cape)  •  LNG  import  has  economies  of  scale  like  in  the  case  of  any  sea-­‐borne  trade   –  such  as  containers:  the  bigger  the  ship,  the  cheaper  it  is!  •  The   largest   LNG   carriers   –   such   as   the   260,000   Cu.m   Q-­‐MAX   –   can   be   30-­‐50%  more  cost-­‐efficient  to  import  gas  than  smaller  ships  •  Vizhinjam  can  handle  the  biggest  LNG  tankers  with  its  18  m  draP  •  Ideal   loca>on   for   a   2.5   MT/year   LNG   import   terminal   and   a   1000   MW   power  plant  (expandable  to  5  MT/year  and  2000  MW)  •  Can   supply   domes>c   gas   and   vehicle   fuel   to   Trivandrum,   Kollam,   Tirunelveli,   Tu>corin   and   Madurai   and   industrial   gas   to   Tu>corin   &   Tirunelveli   20  
  21. 21. Cruise  Terminal  •  Hundreds  of  cruise  ships  cross  the  Indian  Ocean  and  transit  very  close   to  Indian  ports  •  Over  100  cruise  calls  were  made  at  ports  like  Mumbai,  Mangalore,  Goa   and  Kochi  •  Close  to  50  made  calls  at  Kochi  because  of  its  proximity  to  the  shipping   lane  and  the  aBrac>veness  of  Kerala  as  a  tourist  des>na>on  •  Vizhinjam   is   the   closest   Indian   port   to   the   interna>onal   shipping   lane   –   a   cruise   ship   will   have   to   divert   only   an   hour   to   call   at   Vizhinjam   Vs   about  10  hours  to  call  at  Kochi  and  24+  hours  at  Goa  •  Vizhinjam  is  located  right  inside  Kerala’s  top  foreign  tourist  aBrac>on  –   the  Trivandrum  –  Kovalam  –  Kollam  tourist  belt  •  As  a  greenfield  port,  cruise  ships  will  not  encounter  conges>on  •  India’s  first  world-­‐class  Cruise  Terminal  at  Vizhinjam  could  aBract  over   100  ships  and  up  to  100,000  premium  tourists  every  year!   21  
  22. 22. Deep  Water  Shipyard  •  Significant  market  for  ship  repair  and  construc>on   •  About   1/3rd   of   global   shipping   passes   close   to   Vizhinjam,   necessita>ng   periodic  maintenance  and  repair  of  tens  of  thousands  of  ships  each  year   •  India  and  Asia  are  seeing  rapid  addi>on  in  shipping  capacity  –  especially  for   container  ships  and  LNG  tankers  •  No  deep  water  shipyard  between  Dubai  and  Singapore  •  Indian   workers   form   a   major   part   of   the   workforce   at   Dubai   &   Singapore;  India  is  well  known  for  low  cost,  high  quality  engineering  •  Vizhinjam  has  a  draP  of  18  m  and  can  build  any  size  ship  •  Cochin  Shipyard  Limited  has  already  expresses  strong  interest  in  a  deep   water  ship  repair  and  construc>on  yard  at  Vizhinjam;  needs  larger  yard   to  complete  its  order  book  including  India’s  second  new  aircraP  carrier  •  The  shipyard  will  aBract  more  traffic  to  the  port  and  create  thousands  of   Crores  of  economic  ac>vity  including  for  small  manufacturers   22  
  23. 23. Master  Plan  –  Basic  Concepts  -­‐  1  •  Deep  water  port  with  a  focus  on  container   transshipment;   close   to   the   int’l   shipping   lanes  •  Design   emphasis   should   be   on   creaGng   a   world-­‐class   port,   NOT   on   cuMng   costs   to   build  a  mediocre  port  –  ALL-­‐IN  STRATEGY!  •  Design  draP  in  Phase  I  itself  should  be  the   best   in   India   –   18   m   at   least   –   sufficient   for   6th  genera>on  ships  •  Turning   circle/breakwater   length   to   be   sufficient   to   handle   6th   genera>on   ships   (10,000  TEUs)  •  Future-­‐proof   by   Maximizing   berth   length   within  loca>onal  constraints  –  have  berths   along   main   breakwater   and   allowance   of   two  way  vessel  traffic  in  port  channel   23  
  24. 24. Master  Plan  –  Basic  Concepts  -­‐  2  •  Container  berths  need  to  be  located  on  the  land  side  of  the   basin  since  they  need  adjacent  stacking  areas  for  maximum   opera>onal  efficiency  •  Since  there  are  constraints  on  the  total  length  of  coast  that   the  project  can  occupy,  it’ll  be  ideal  to  create  another  line   of  berths  along  the  main  breakwater  •  Cruise,  LNG  and  liquid  cargo  terminals  can  be  located  along   the  breakwater  •  Vizhinjam   Port   area   development   including   logis>cs   hubs,   Container  Freight  Sta>ons  (CFS)  etc  to  be  planned  •  Addi>on  of  bunkering  facility  •  Mul>purpose/general  cargo  handling  to  be  provisioned  for  •  Strategic   Choice:   Longer   berth   length,   greater   basin   depth   and  capacity  Vs  increased  construc>on  cost  16   24  
  25. 25. Master  Plan  Modifica>ons  Phase  I  capacity  to  be  at  least   Phase  II  capacity  1.5  Mn  TEUs   to  be  at  least  =   Phase  I  Phase  I  Design  Depth  to  be  18  m   Move  Cruise   Terminal  to   Breakwater  Turning  circle  to  accommodate  6th   Move  Main  Gen  ships   Breakwater   further  out  to   sea  to  allow   berths  for  non-­‐ 16   25   container  uses  
  26. 26. Master  Plan  on  Site
