Cochin Port handles Chemical Products like Liquid Ammonia, Methanol, Ethylene Dichloride (EDC) etc. , at two berths. One of the berths is called South Coal Berth (SCB), which was commissioned in the year 1953. Till very recently, the berth was used for handling liquid ammonia of Fertilizer & Chemicals Travancore Limited (FACT, a Government of India Undertaking) and their liquid storage tanks near the berth are spread over an area of 1 hectare.

The SCB is in a damaged condition due to ageing and corrosion. As the structure is beyond economical repairs and also outlived its economic life, a Health Check-up Study was got conducted by M/s. National Technological Centre for Ports, Waterways & Coasts (NTCPWC, IIT, Madras), the extended arm of Ministry of Shipping, and they have recommended demolition and reconstruction the SCB to meet the durability and strength requirements. As such, it is proposed to reconstruct SCB to facilitate handling of chemicals.

The proposed reconstruction of SCB consists of: (i) Construction of Berthing Jetty  of size 110m x 12m on 1000mm dia piles founded at -46.70m CD; (ii) Construction of Approach Trestle of size 48m x 7mon 800mm dia piles founded at -40.70m CD; (iii) Demolition of Existing Jetty including cutting piles, to the extent required for construction of the proposed structures;  (iv) Laying Concrete Road to Approach Trestle;  and (iv) Electrical works consisting  of modification to the existing 11 KV distribution system to provide lighting on the Berth and Approaches Trestle etc.  The Berthing Structure is designed for a vessel of maximum size of 35,000DWT, 9.14m draft, 183.6m LoA and 27.60m beam.

 

 

"SCB"

The total estimated cost of the Project works out to about Rs.19.19 Crores. MoS on 13/12/2029 conveyed the in-principle approval of Competent Authority of MoS for funding 50% of Project Cost/ Tendered Cost, which ever is less, under Sagarmala Scheme. Out of the balance, 25% will be advanced by the main user agency viz., M/s. FACT (amount to be adjusted against future wharfage / berth hire charges) and the remaining 25% will be shared by CoPT.  The Project Cost is revised to Rs. 20.90 Crores on preparation of detailed estimate after preliminary design by the consultants, NTCPWC..

The Project is expected to be implemented within a period of 17 months. As before, the reconstructed SCB will also be operated and maintained by Cochin Port Trust. 

The work of "Re-Construction of South Coal Berth at Cochin Port on EPC Contract Basis" has been awarded to the contractors M/s KVJ Builders & Developers Pvt. Ltd., Kochi a contract value of Rs.17,70,55,267.50 on 19/11/2020. The work is commenced on 26/11/2020 and in progress. 

The Hon’ble  Prime Minister of India laid foundation stone of the project on 14-02-2021. 

Physical progress of the work is 46.31% and financial progress is 44.4%. Approach Trestle piling work for entire 20Nos. piles has been completed and 40 Nos. of Main Jetty piles has also been completed out of 60 Nos. piles. Casting of Pre-Cast concrete units is under progress for superstructure. 

The project is expected to be completed in February, 2022.

Cochin Port have received a request from M/s. Deepak Phenolics Limited for transportation of Propylene (flammable gas of 2.1 hazardous class) through Ro-Ro shipping from Cochin to Dahej (Gujarat) as it will be cost effective & environment friendly. Currently, the cargo is being transported by road. Since Dahej Port does not have the required draft of 5m for the Ro-Ro ships, M/s. DPL had suggested exploring the possibility of using Hazira Port instead of Dahej Port. Meanwhile, a feedback from M/s.DPL has been received wherein they have indicated that they would be interested to patronize the service provided the cost per tonne of transportation remains below the current road transportation cost and hence CoPT have now taken up with the Ro-Ro operator, M/s. DG Connect, who are currently operating service between Hazira and Ghogha to revert with the possible freight tariff.

The main objective of this initiative is to bring about a modal shift that is cost effective, safe, less pollutant reducing carbon footprints& environment friendly movement leveraging Coastal Shipping.

As Cochin Port has only linear berths where Ro-Ro vessel with quarter stern ramp or side ramp can only be berthed, CoPT has drawn up a proposal to provide additional Ro-Ro handling facility at the southern side of the existing Q1 berth of Mattancherry Wharf utilising Q1 berth that can facilitate the berthing of Ro-Ro vessels with straight stern and front ramps.

The proposed additional Ro-Ro handling facility in between Q1 berth and South Coal Berth (SCB) consists of (i) Construction of Jetty structure of approximately 900 sq. m., (ii) Strengthening of existing road surface upto IG Road, (iii) Construction / Re-construction of existing compound wall and drain and (iv) Refurbishment of existing buildings as Comfort Station for the drivers.

The total estimated cost of the Project works out to around Rs.11.06 Crores.  Ministry of Ports, Shipping and Waterways has requested for financial support of entire project cost considering Port's contribution towards the project is use of existing Berth Q1. 

The Project is expected to be implemented within a period of 12 months from the date of its approval by the competent authority. If a dedicated berth is available at Cochin Port for handling Ro-Ro ships, there is chance of attracting more users for handling various types of cargo through Ro-Ro ships to various destinations. On completion, the facilities would be operated and maintained by CoPT, for multiple users.

Total projected capacity of the berth is 0.60 MMTPA

 

Providing Ro-Ro Facilities for Propylene Handling at Cochin Port

 

The proposal is under active consideration of the Ministry of Ports, Shipping and Waterways.
