Development of a Multi-User Liquid Terminal (MULT) at Puthuvypeen SEZ (International Bunkering Terminal)

Cochin Port Trust has awarded the construction of an Oil-cum-LPG Jetty at Puthuvypeen in March 2013. The project is scheduled for commissioning by March  2016. The project has a total capacity of 4.10 MMTPA, with LPG forming 0.68 MMTPA and bunkers/POL products being 3.42 MMTPA.

The terminal is designed as a Multi-User Liquid Terminal. IOCL will have use of the terminal for 161 days in a year, while other operators can use it for the balance 204 days.

The berthing structure when complete, will berth vessels with 230m LOA, 13 m draft and 80,000 DWT.  

This jetty will service IOCL’s LPG storage facility in Puthuvypeen, and in the process, reduce road transport of LPG from Mangalore through Kerala.

The jetty will also serve as an International Bunkering Terminal for supplying bunkers to vessels calling at the Port as well as plying in the high seas.

108 acres of backup area in the Puthuvypeen SEZ will be offered to tank farms, where operators may import duty-free bunkers and stock for bunkering.

The project will also have a barge loading berth to cater to bunkering and other liquids.  It is also proposed to lay pipelines to the ICTT and LNG Terminals to bunker ships at berth.

Cochin Port being located strategically on the busy international sea routes from Persian Gulf / Europe to the Far East, offers potential for mid-sea bunkering of ships plying on these routes.

The low VAT of 0.5% on sale of fuels to foreign going vessels and the low composite handling charges of Rs.70.49 per tonne for handling bunkers makes MULT a winning proposition.

M/s IOCL have entrusted with CoPT, execution of construction of jetty and its associated facilities through EPC contractor. Tenders on EPC basis invited with due date of submission on 16/02/2015.
