With the improved weather conditions, Gujarat Pipavav Port has commenced its port operations at Pipavav, Gujarat. But certain sections of the rail line connecting Pipavav to Surendranagar have been extensively damaged causing suspension of rail movement to and from the port. The Engineers of Indian Railways are visiting the site for assessment of damages and decide the further course of action.
The port, the first PPP port in the country and owned by the AP Moller-Maersk Group, had to suspend operations due to the cyclonic weather conditions and breakdown of power supply and communication following massive floods in the regions.
Gujarat Pipavav Port is the developer and operator of APM Terminals Pipavav, India's first private sector port, which has multi-cargo and multi-user operations.
