Mormugao Port Trust (MPT) has launched a request for qualification (RFQ) for the development of a multipurpose cargo terminal at the port in Goa, West India.
The project will be developed on a design, build, finance, operation and maintenance basis. MPT has already conducted a feasibility study for determining the technical feasibility and financial viability of the project. The total investment is estimated at Rs13,660 million (US$230.4 million).
The scope of work will broadly include designing and constructing of a berth about 750m long dredged, ship loading/unloading and other shore equipment, covered storage facilities, railway tracks, etc to handle at least 8.3 million tons per annum. The project also includes capital dredging alongside the new berth, and access to the berth from the channel.
The Port of Mormugao has a 250-meter wide channel that is 5.2 kilometers long in the Outer Channel and 2.3 kilometers long in the Inner Channel. The existing Port facilities include six berths, plus a mechanized barge unloading facility.
A pre application conference will be hold on 1 July. Interested parties must submit their proposals on or before 31 July 2014. The shortlist is scheduled to be announced on 28 August.
