4 Stocks that can benefit from ₹ 76,200 Cr capex to develop Vadhavan Port under PM Gati Shakti

Posted on June 24, 2024

Vadhavan Port, located in Maharashtra, India, is a large planned deep-sea port with an estimated annual capacity of 254 million tons. The port, which is predicted to cost $10 billion, intends to improve India’s marine infrastructure and manage large cargo volumes, improving the country’s commerce and logistics sectors.

Ministry of Ports, Shipping and Waterways has approved a capex of Rs 76,200 crore for the development of an all-weather deep-water port at Vadhavan, Maharashtra. The project will create a cumulative capacity of 298 million metric tons (MMT) per annum which includes around 23.2 million TEUs (Twenty-foot equivalents) of container handling capacity, as per the Press Information Bureau.

Moreover, the Port will include nine container terminals, each 1000 meters long, four multipurpose berths (including the coastline berth), four liquid cargo berths, a Ro-Ro dock, and a Coast Guard berth. The project entails the reclamation of 1,448 hectares of seabed and the building of 10.14 kilometers of offshore breakwater and container/cargo storage facilities.

Furthermore, Vadhavan will be constructed by a joint venture in which Jawaharlal Nehru Port Authority (JNPA) will have a 74 percent stake and Maharashtra Maritime Board will hold 26 percent.

The project, which is linked with the objectives of the PM Gati Shakti program, would increase economic activity while also providing direct and indirect job possibilities for around 12 lakh people, therefore contributing to the local economy.
