Essar Bulk Terminal Signs Agreement for Jetty Expansion at Hazira

Capt. Subhas Das, CEO, Essar Bulk Terminal, added: “The Hazira Port terminal is a world-class facility; the expansion will help us cater to the cargo requirements generated by the enhanced capacity utilisation of our anchor customer, Essar Steel.”

Since Essar Steel production is expected to increase further during FY18, the total cargo handling at the Hazira port terminal is likely to cross 25 million tonnes in the fiscal.
