Iron ore terminal at Mangalore Port

Mangalore Port in Karnataka is an all-weather and ISPS (International Ship and Port Facility Security) compliant port. It is 315 km South of Mormugao port and 353 km North of Cochin port.

Sical has won a tender for Mechanization of Iron ore terminal at Mangalore Port on a 30 years BOT contract. The company’s expertise in infrastructural setup and operations will achieve the projected handling capacity of 9 million tons per annum at this port.The project is under implementation.

Sical Iron Ore Terminal (Mangalore) Limited (SIOTML)

SIOTML a fully owned subsidiary of Sical Logistics has been set up as a special purpose venture for setting up a 9 MPTA mechanized iron ore handling facility at the Deep Draft Multipurpose berth at Mangalore port.

The Blueprint

SIOTML’s engineers have chalked out the blueprint for smooth, unhindered and efficient execution of the processes for optimized output. The facility being set up on an area of 145,000 sq m has well demarcated areas for Stockyard, Railway yard and also area for ‘Right of Way’ for belt conveying system.

Terminals Objectives

The mechanization of the deep draft multipurpose berth is with the objective of achieving high efficiency which in turn will aid the re-routing of the iron ore traffic from the primary cluster locations of Tumkur and Chitradurga to Mangalore port.

Multipurpose Berth

The multipurpose berth – Berth No 14 has already been constructed by NMPT and is set for the mechanization process. The berth has a draft of 15.1m and with vessels accommodating capacity of 85,000 to 100,000 DWT size whilst the maximum length of the vessels hull being 300m.
