Essar’s Paradip terminal delivers record throughput

Essar Ports’ Paradip Terminal in India handled 800,000 tonnes of cargo in April this year, suggesting a growth of around 40% on an annualised basis is possible. The Terminal has also handled a record throughput of 6.8 million tonnes in the financial year 2021-22, ending April, the highest result since its commissioning.

During April the terminal also recorded its highest daily load rate of 70,000 tonnes, with an average berth turnaround time of 1.23 days per vessel. The average throughput in the 2021-22 financial year stood at 49,500 tonnes per day.

Rajiv Agarwal, Managing Director, Essar Ports, said, “I congratulate the team at Paradip Terminal for achieving the best cargo throughput in spite of the difficult market conditions. Our all-round performance is a result of our innovative approach, developing state of the art solutions and investment in future-ready technology. “

The company’s Paradip Terminal boasts a fully mechanised eco-friendly infrastructure that includes wagon tipplers, stackers and reclaimers, ship loaders and unloaders. “By eliminating non-mechanised handling, the terminal infrastructure delivers performance at efficient costs to its customers,” says Agarwal. “Furthermore, the deeper drafts of the terminal lead to economies of scale and bigger parcels, that in turn helps reduce carbon footprint.

The all-weather deep-draft terminal in Paradip Port is strategically located in the Bay of Bengal in close proximity to China, Japan, Myanmar and the rest of the southeast-Asian region. The terminal also serves coastal movements for the steel industry within India.
