We have commissioned Floating Jetty under License Agreement with Kolkata Port Trust (KoPT) to handle Barges / Mini Bulk Carrier. The barges / Mini Bulk Carrier will not have to enter the port confines through the lock gate. This is allowing faster turnaround operations, as discharge at this jetty can directly commence without sequencing Barges with Vessel through lock gate. It has a capacity of 2.5 MT PA.
Ripley Group and Bothra group as JV is concessionaire to Kolkata Port Trust and has formed Haldia Floating Terminal Pvt. Ltd. at Haldia Dock complex – First of its kind floating river project in India.
The terminal is a riverine Jetty located outside the Haldia Lock Gate for direct approach by barge/ mini bulk carriers.
