  1. 1. Prabir Datta Page 1 1GANGAVARAM_WRITEUP Gangavaram Port ---- the Ultra Modern Deepest Port of India By PRABIR DATTA,B.Sc,F.I.E(I), MEMBER,CONSULTING ENGINEERS’ ASSOCIATION OF INDIA, CONSULTANT CHARTERED MECHANICAL ENGINEER
  2. 2. Prabir Datta Page 2 2GANGAVARAM_WRITEUP Upholding the true spirit of Public Private Partnership the State Government of Andhra Pradesh, India, with an intention to develop the Port on the Public Private Partnership model, conducted a global bid process and selected the consortium led by Mr.D.V.S.Raju, to develop and operate the port.Gangavaram Port has the unique distinction of being one of the few Greenfield projects in India which has been implemented on schedule. Construction at the site commenced in December 2005 and the Port commenced Trial commercial operations at the port in August 2008.Gangavaram Port has been developed as all weather, multipurpose, deepest port in India with a depth up to 21 meters capable of handling Super Cape size vessels of up to 200,000 DWT. Gangavaram Port with its deep draft berths will act as the gateway port to existing and Greenfield projects planned in the hinterland. It ability to handle larger vessels efficiently will result in substantial savings to trade and port users. The greenfield port development is planned in three phases over 15-20 year time horizon. The port is expected to have a cargo handling capacity of around 200 MMTPA. It will have facilities of handling super-cape size bulk carriers. The port will be a multi-purpose facility with hinterland rail/road connectivity, storage areas and high mechanisation in cargo handling. Gangavaram Port in Phase-I, will be able to handle cargo up to 30 million metric tones per annum (MMTPA). It will be able to provide efficient cargo handling services for a variety of bulk cargo groups including Coal, Iron Ore, Fertilizer, Limestone, Food Grains, Steel products, Petrochemicals etc.The Port, its related facilities and material handling system have been planned to meet the highest standards in terms of pollution prevention and safety. Gangavaram Port is located at Visakhapatnam, the industrial nerve center of Andhra Pradesh around Latitude 17° 37' N and Longitude 83° 14' E, about 15 kms south of Visakhapatnam Port.The site for Gangavaram Port is the best location for development of a modern all weather, deepwater, multipurpose and truly next generation port. The coast here forms a bay between Yarada Hill at north and Mukkoma Hill at south. A creek in between these two hills forms Balacheruvu Lagoon, where the natural port of Gangavaram is being developed.
  3. 3. Prabir Datta Page 3 3GANGAVARAM_WRITEUP Berths in phase-I Size Alongside Depth 1 Coal Cargo 320 x 25 m 19.50 m below CD 2 Iron Ore Cargo 340 x 25 m 19.50 m below CD 3 Other Dry Cargo 275 x 31 m 15.50 m below CD 4 Multipurpose Cargo 281 x 31 m 15.50 m below CD 5 General Cargo 242 x 28 m 14.00 m below CD The Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, Late Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy inaugurated and dedicated the Gangavaram Port to the Nation at a grand ceremony held on 13th July,2009, at the Port. Cargo Handling Facilities New generation mechanized cargo handling system has being installed at Gangavaram Port for faster and efficient handling and evacuation of cargo with minimum handling loss. Cargo handling equipment installed in Phase-I development include, Ship Loader for bulk exports, Ship Unloaders for bulk imports, Mobile Harbour Cranes for bulk/break bulk cargo, associated conveyer system for transportation to and from stackyard, Stackers & Reclaimers for stackyard operations and Wagon loader & Wagon tipplers for handling Railway rakes.
  4. 4. Prabir Datta Page 4 4GANGAVARAM_WRITEUP Stack Yard machines Gangavaram port has installed the new generation completely mechanized material handling system at the port for faster and efficient handling and evacuation of cargo with minimum handling loss. COAL SHIP UNLOADERS
  5. 5. Prabir Datta Page 5 5GANGAVARAM_WRITEUP SHIPUNLOADERS,LOADER AND MOBILE HARBOUR CRANES The Design and Project Management Consultants for this project were Consulting Engineering Services(India) Private Ltd,New Delhi and SOROS,USA, Consortium,duly selected by an International Competitive Bidding. Technology partners for the port included global players in Material Handling Systems like Duro Felguera, S.A of Spain and ZPMC of China. Implementation partners included reputed global engineering companies like Larsen and Tubro Limited. Dredging for the port was done by the global major Dredging International.
  6. 6. Prabir Datta Page 6 6GANGAVARAM_WRITEUP IRON ORE SHIPLOADER AND JETTY CONVEYOR Mechanised cargo handling equipment including Loaders, Unloaders and Mobile harbor cranes have been installed at berths to load and discharge cargo from vessel. High speed conveyor systems have been installed to convey cargo to and from berths to stackyard. Stackyards have been planned with modern and high capacity stackers and reclaimers to stack and reclaim cargo. Port railway terminal has been planned with separate sidings for inbound Cargo with wagon tipplers and with wagon loaders for loading outbound cargo from the port. Mechanized system will be monitored by state of the art Programmable Logic Control (PLC) and Computerised Operation system. New generation mechanized cargo handling system has been installed at Gangavaram Port for faster and efficient handling and evacuation of cargo with minimum handling loss. Cargo handling equipment being installed in Phase-I development include, Ship Loader (One Loader with Rated Capacity of 4500 Tonnes per Hour) for bulk exports, Ship Unloaders (2 Unloaders with Rated Capacity of 2400 TPH each) for bulk imports, Mobile Harbour Cranes (2 Cranes with Rated Capacity of 1500 TPH each) for bulk/break bulk cargo, associated conveyer system for transportation to and from stackyard, Stackers & Reclaimers for stackyard operations and Wagon loader (Rated Capacity of 1500 TPH) & Wagon tipplers (Rated Capacity of 24 Tips per hour) for handling Railway rakes.
