Aegis Logistics is developing the first liquid terminal at Pipavav Port where a new berth for liquid cargo has already been built by the port.
Specifically, the port has secured the requisite approvals for setting up a Bulk Liquid and Gas Storage Terminal at the Gujarat port and has begun work on the project. The Project contains additional capacity of 120,000 kilolitre of Bulk Liquid and 2,700 mn t of Gas.
The company has set up such terminals across several ports from Haldia to Kochi. It is also into setting up of inland oil terminals on a “build, own, operate” basis to service the national oil companies and developing a retail distribution network for the LPG business.
The Pipavav Port is being operated by AP Moller Maersk Group, having strategic location in the gulf of Khambat, 152 nautical miles north of Mumbai as well as being all weather port with 24X7 operations and modern environment friendly infrastructure facilities.
Presently, Aegis Group handles liquid volumes of over 2 million tonne and gas volumes of over 600,000 mn t. With additional capacity, Aegis will be able to capitalize the increased demand for 3PL facilities by the Oil and Gas Sector. The Project will augment the ability of Aegis to offer its customers a comprehensive portfolio of facilities for a large variety of cargoes at different ports.
The expanded facilities shall enable the Group to handle over 1 Million MT of Liquid cargoes and 100,000 MT of Gas for its customers and will be able to expand its horizons by catering to untapped markets in Western Gujarat, North India, etc.
