Adani's Dhamra port expansion opens doors to South-East Asia.
Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone Ltd (APSEZ), India's largest port developer and a part of the $12-billion Adani Group, on Saturday inaugurated the Phase-II expansion of Dhamra Port in Odisha.

The inauguration ceremony took place in the presence of Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik and Adani Group Chairman Gautam Adani, among others, a company official said here.

The Phase-II expansion will not only make Dhamra the country’s largest port but also serve as a major gateway for trade with South-East Asian nations, Adani said, while addressing the gathering. Karan Adani, CEO, APSEZ, said the Phase-II expansion was completed ahead of schedule. It will help achieve the company’s Vision 2020 of handling 200 million tonnes (mt), well ahead of time. “We now aim to touch 500 mt by the year 2025.”

The Phase II expansion of Dhamra Port will increase the cargo handling capacity of the port to over 100 mtpa, up from 25 mtpa at present. The company deployed manpower of more than 3,000 with 88 per cent locals for the Phase II expansion.

The port is located at 215 km from Bhubaneswar and is located between Haldia in West Bengal and Paradip in Odisha. It serves as a gateway to Nepal, Bangladesh, Myanmar and the entire geopolitical region, including the ASEAN region.

School, skills centre

The Adani Foundation has also set up an Adani-DAV Public School at Kumamara in Bhadrak district in Odisha, providing free education to over 340 students up to Class IX at present. It will also set up an Adani Skill Development Centre (ASDC) at Dhamra to impart skills to the youth.
