Adani Petronet (Dahej) Port, which operates Dahej Port in South Gujarat, has successful commissioned second jetty at the port. The company is a joint venture (JV) between Adani Ports & Special Economic Zone (formerly, Mundra Port and Special Economic Zone) and Petronet LNG.
The commissioning of the jetty marks completion of the second phase of expansion at Dahej Port. The port has an annual cargo handling capacity of 20 million tonnes. Dahej Port handles varied commodities such as coal, silica sand, rock phosphate, steel products and project cargo / machinery items.
The coal import terminal at Dahej is equipped with two jetties with a deep draft of 14 metres each thus enabling berthing of large cap-size vessels. Both the jetties are equipped with state of the art Gottwald make Mobile Harbor cranes.
Last month, the Dahej Port has also been connected by railways, a move that will help reducing logistics costs for transporting coal to the region and rest of India.
