India: Construction of Mumbai Offshore Container Terminal Moves Forward

The construction of Offshore Container Terminal in Mumbai Port is going on.

Due to delays by the build, operate and transfer (BOT) operator and dredging contractor the project got delayed. As per the License Agreement signed between Mumbai Port Trust and M/s Indira Container Terminal Pvt. Ltd., the berth should have been commissioned long back. It has now been rescheduled to December, 2012.

Both the Ministry of Shipping and Mumbai Port Trust are monitoring the progress of the work. Mumbai Port Trust has appointed an Independent Engineer for approval of designs, quality control and monitoring progress of the BOT operator. A Project Management Consultant has also been appointed for preparation of estimates, tenders and supervision of works for Mumbai Port component.

The work is likely to be completed by December, 2012.
