Bharat Mumbai Container Terminals Private Limited (BMCT), a subsidiary of PSA International, has signed the 30-year concession with Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) to develop the JN Port’s fourth container terminal in Mumbai on a design, build, operate, finance and transfer basis.
Located at India’s largest and premier container gateway port, BMCT will have the deepest berths at 16.5 m, along with the latest technology and equipment to serve the important industrial and manufacturing centres and cities in India’s largest hinterland. The facility will also be well-connected by major highways and rail networks to key fast-growing markets in India.
When fully completed, BMCT will have a quay length of 2,000 m with a design capacity of 4.8m teu per annum, doubling JNPT’s current capacity of over 4m teu at its three current container terminals. One of these is operated by the port, while the other two are operated on a public-private partnership (PPP) basis by DP World and APM Terminals.
