Adani Petronet Port Private Limited are developing a mulipurpose port at Dahej,Gujarat. At the initial phase it is proposed to develop a berth with associated material handling facilities to handle panamax size vessels for the import of coal, fertilizer, FRM and steel, along with an approach trestle. In the subsequent phases, additional berths will be developed to cater to the export requirements.
BMT was appointed to review the entire material handling system and provide value engineering advice at the initial stages of development. The following were the main items reviewed
- Master plan and port layout
- Conveyor system
- Stacker cum Reclaimer
- Buildings & Utilities
- Yard development
BMT proposed solutions to achieve higher productivity, improved plant reliablity, ease of maintainence and lower capex & opex costs. Singnificant savings were made by Adani in their overall design. BMT’s Australian based Materials handling team was involved in the project.
