Mormugao Port Authority plans 3 MW solar system with GEDA

Mormugao Port Authority (MPA) Chairman Dr.

“We are working with GEDA to enable 3 MW solar power generation in the port. If all goes well, we can implement it next year so that the majority of the port’s electricity needs can be covered by solar energy,” said Dr. Vinodkumar speaking to the media.

dr Vinodkumar said it was a golden day for MPA to win the Sagar Shreshta Award from Union Shipping Minister Sarbananda Sonowal in Delhi in the presence of MoS Shipping Shripad Naik.

“There was a launch of the Harit Sagar Scheme, a green port policy document from the Ministry of Sustainable Initiatives for all major ports across the country. We are delighted that MPA has won the award for Average Berth Per Day among all major ports after handling a record 15,699 tonnes of cargo in a single day, up from around 11,000 tonnes per day last year. This jump in cargo handling at a berth in a single day contributed to the award,” said Dr. Vinodkumar.

“One of my main priorities is to have sustainable initiatives in the port and the launch of Harit Sagar has spurred us to embrace sustainable initiatives and green technologies,” he added.
