Essar Vizag Terminal is an all weather deep draft terminal at Visakhapatnam Port Trust in Andhra Pradesh on the east coast of India. This terminal has 3 existing berths which have been mechanized to 32 MMTPA capacity.

Two berths are in the outer harbor (OB1 & OB2) and one in the inner harbor (WQ1). The outer harbour berths need to be upgraded and the inner harbour berth (WQ-1) needs to be mechanized. The outer harbor berths will be able to berth Super Capesize vessels of 2,00,000 DWT. It will have mechanized iron ore loading capacity of 8000 TPH, among the highest in the country. Inner harbor berth will be able to berth Panamax vessels with mechanized iron ore loading facility.

VPT is strategically located in Bay of Bengal in close proximity to iron ore mines located in Chhattisgarh, Southern Odisha and Jharkhand. The terminal will attract both exports and coastal traffic.
