The construction works on a new breakwater, part of the Vizhinjam Seaport project, have started at the Mulloor port site, the Deccan Chronicle reports.
Grand Four Group (GFG), a Thiruvananthapuram-based construction company, will supply the raw material for the breakwater.
This coastal protection scheme will be realized by depositing hard rocks in an area of 3.5 kilometers.
The rocks will be placed at 10 meter width and the necessary raw materials will be supplied from seven quarries.
Adani Group, which is entrusted with the construction of the Vizhinjam port, had earlier made it clear that the breakwater could be built in 30 months once the work kicks off.
