Essar Ports – Delivering World Class Solutions inside_company_profile.gif

Essar Ports specializes in development and operations of Ports and Terminals for handling liquid, dry bulk, break bulk and general cargo. It is one of the largest private sector port operators in India by capacity and throughput. It has four operational terminals in India across Hazira and Salaya (in the state of Gujarat) on the west coast, and one each in Visakhapatnam and Paradip on the east coast. Current operational Port Terminal capacity in India is 82 MMTPA and the same is expected to reach 110 MMTPA.

The Hazira port terminal in Gujarat is an all-weather, deep-draft port terminal capable of handling dry bulk, liquid and break bulk cargo. The Paradip dry bulk terminal is an all-weather, deep-draft facility integrated Essar Steel Pellet Plant and handles dry bulk cargo. The Vizag terminal caters to the iron ore traffic and handles both domestic and export shipments. The Company’s newly commissioned dry bulk terminal at Salaya has increased its dry bulk cargo handling capacity by 20 MMTPA on the west coast of India.

The new capacity will be added through the expansion of the Hazira Port Terminal, the expansion of the iron ore berths at the Vishakhapatnam Port Trust, and other Projects in pipeline. Essar has recently signed a concession for development of 20 MMTPA dry bulk (coal) terminal in Beira Port with Government of Mozambique.

Essar positively impacts the lives of all stakeholders including employees and the communities living close to its facilities. Community initiatives aim to enhance livelihoods through programs focused on entrepreneurship, education, empowering women, infrastructure, environment and health. It sees involving community leaders as key to success. Essar has transformed the neighboring areas of its operations by planting thousands of trees and laying water pipelines. Essar generates direct and indirect employment for thousands of people in the region it operates. Essar Ports adheres to stringent Health, Safety & Environment standards wherever they operate. Essar Ports drives continual improvement and its facilities are accredited with highest accolades.
