Mangaluru: The mechanised handling of coal began at New Mangalore Port Trust on Friday, November 8.

The NMPT had entered into a concession agreement with M/s Chettinad Mangalore Coal Terminal Pvt. Ltd (CMCTPL) for mechanised handling of coal and other bulk cargo in the year 2016.

M/s CMCTPL has developed the facility and commenced its commercial operation by handling the first shipment of coal brought by vessel MV Yangze-8. The vessel is having draft of 13.10 mtrs and overall length of 200 Meters with 25000 metric tonnes coal.

The facility has been developed for handling coal on common user basis. The entire coal cargos which were earlier handled semi mechanised manner at various berths of NMPT will now be handled at the dedicated mechanised coal terminal.

With the development of mechanised handling having dust suppression facility, the dust pollution at NMPT will come down drastically which will also increase the productivity and reduce turnaround time of vessel.
