Adani Ports to invest around Rs 49,000 crore to scale up its Dharma port

Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone Ltd (APSEZ) is planning to invest Rs 48,933 crore to scale up its port at Dhamra in Odisha to handle 314 million tonnes (mt) of cargo.

APSEZ looks to make the eastern coast port as big as its flagship Mundra port in Gujarat on the western coast. Mundra Port is India’s biggest private commercial port.

According to a BusinessLine report, the expert appraisal committee (EAC) in the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change has recommended environmental and coastal regulation zone (CRZ) clearances for the expansion of Dhamra on a revised master plan filed by APSEZ.

It added that the Dhamra Port Company Ltd (DPCL), the APSEZ unit that runs the port, currently runs two berths with a capacity to load 25 mt of cargo such as coal, iron ore and lime-stone.
