Gateway for Industries on the West Coast of India

Essar’s 50 MMTPA all-weather, deep draft bulk terminal is strategically located at the mouth of the Tapi estuary along the western side of the Hazira Peninsula in the Gulf of Khambat, Magdalla Port of the Gujarat Maritime Board (GMB). It is one of the closest ports to the land-locked northern and central Indian regions.

Hazira operates six deep draft berths with a total quay length of 1650m. It is connected by a ~7km navigation channel that enables the direct berthing of deep draft vessels. Marked by beacons and buoys, the channel has a bottom-width of 300m and a turning radius of 600m along the berth. It provides lighterage facilities which facilitates the berthing of cape-size and super cape vessels to achieve freight savings.

Hazira is integrated with the largest steel plant on the west coast and serves the rich industrial cluster along the west coast of India.
