Sand Mining Project in Cochin Port

Cochin Port Trust has been exploring methods of reducing the net expenditure on maintenance dredging.  One of the suggestions in this regard was utilization of the material from the dredging.   

The Port has now decided to concentrate on the area around Vypeen where sand is available.  It is estimated that around 4 million cubic metres of sand per year is being dredged from this area, which extends about 5 KMs into the shipping channel from the Vypeen Gut.

The Port has secured Environmental Clearance to use the dredged spoils for beach nourishment. 

The Port now proposes to use this sand for construction purposes after segregating and subjecting it to washing. 

This will be done on a PPP (DBFOT) basis. 

Around 24 acres of land is available to the west of the LNG terminal in Puthuvypeen for locating the necessary plant and machinery. 

When the LNG terminal runs at 5 MMTPA, it will produce 2.4 MLD of de-mineralized water.  This could be procured for washing operations on mutually acceptable terms from the Petronet LNG Ltd. 

The Port proposes to call a tender-cum-auction for a sand mining operation to be located on this land; the period of the concession will be for 10 years.  The Port will undertake the dredging and deliver the sand to this area by means of pipelines. 

The bidding parameter will be the premium that the bidders offer to the Port over and above the rate charged by the Port as fixed by the Port from time to time for the dredged sand. 

The DPR preparation has been awarded to KITCO.
