Category: Minor Ports
Orissa has identified 13 locations on its coast to build deep sea ports along its 480 km coast. These locations have been identified with technology from IIT, Chennai. The potential port locations are Gopalpur, Bahuda river mouth, Sonepur and Palur in Ganjam district, Baliharichandi and Astaranga in Puri district, Jatadhari Muhan in Jagatsinghpur district and Barunei Muhan in Kendrapara district, Dhamara and Chudamani in Bhadrak district as well as Inchudi, Chandipur, Bahabalapur and Subarnarekha in Balasore district. These ports will be developed as public-private partnerships. It may be noted, Gujarat has as many as 46 ports which is instrumental in its economic growth and Orissa is trying to emulate this model.
