Ennore Port capacity to be enhanced in 12th Plan: Vasan

Chennai, Jan 6 : Union Shipping Minister G.K. Vasan Monday said the capacity of Tamil Nadu's Ennore Port will be more than doubled with the provision of various new facilities during the 12th Plan period (2012-2017).


Inaugurating the Rs.51.60 crore railway siding infrastructure at the port near here, Vasan said the central government's efforts in the port sector are largely to increase the efficiency, augment the capacity and improve connectivity.

During the 12th Plan period, Ennore Port would be taking up various projects like five million tonne per annum (MTPA) liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal, a 16 MTPA container terminal, two MTPA multi-cargo terminal-2 and a nine MTPA additional coal berth, he said.

The completion of these projects would more than double Ennore Port's capacity from the current 30 MTPA.
