JSW Infra to boost container capacity at New Mangalore Port

JSW Infrastructure has announced its plans to significantly increase container capacity at the New Mangalore Port Trust (NMPT) in Karnataka. The expansion project, valued at Rs 1.52 billion, aims to enhance the container terminal's capabilities.

In June 2022, JSW Infrastructure successfully launched its first container terminal at the New Mangalore Port Trust, which initially had a cargo capacity of 240,000 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs). Now, the company intends to expand this capacity to 400,000 TEUs by implementing various modernization initiatives through its subsidiary, JSW Mangalore Container Terminal (MTPL).

The container terminal includes a spacious backup area covering 65,000 sq m, serving as storage for containers. It is equipped with six reach stackers, an empty container handler, and two mobile harbour cranes, facilitating efficient cargo handling.

This expansion project highlights JSW Infrastructure's dedication to strengthening container operations at the New Mangalore Port Trust. By increasing the port's capacity, the company aims to meet the growing demands and contribute to the economic development of the region.
