The project will be handled by Sterlite Ports Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Vedanta Limited.

This contract has been awarded through a competitive bidding process on DBFOT Basis (Design, Build, Finance, Operate and Transfer) for the 19 million metric tonnes per annum (MMTPA) capacity multi-cargo port terminal in Mormugao Port, Goa.

The re-developed berths are planned to handle all type of cargo including iron ore, coal, limestone, bauxite and general cargo with an expected capacity of 19.22 million tonnes per annum.
