DPW wins JNPT terminal project

DPW wins JNPT terminal project

DP World will invest around US$200m to build the container terminal and 17 hectares of yard, which will have an annual handling capacity of 800,000 teu; draught alongside will be 13.5 m. The new quay has been awarded for a 17 year concession period and will be equipped with four rail mounted quay cranes and 12 rubber tyred gantry (RTG) cranes.

The Asia Pacific and Indian Subcontinent region was the main driver of DP World’s volume growth in the first six months of 2012, reporting a 12.1% increase in volumes to 13.3m teu.

“JNPT is India’s largest trade gateway and additional port capacity will ease the congestion concerns of the shipping community,” said Anil Singh, senior vice president and managing director, DP World Subcontinent.
