Various measures initiated by New Mangalore Port Trust (NMPT) for maritime infrastructure development will help boost the growth of export-import trade. The mechanisation of cargo handling and container handling facilities at New Mangalore Port will bring investment of Rs. 750 crore in public-private partnership mode. NNMPT has taken all steps to harness solar energy by installing a 1.1 MW rooftop solar plant and a 4 MW solar plant on its premises. The port is aiming to be a green port by 2017 getting its entire power requirement from the non-conventional energy resources.
