Jawaharlal Nehru Port was, at the time, the main container port of India. Cullen Grummitt & Roe was part of our client’s team carrying out a detailed feasibility study of the potential for privatisation of the existing container facilities of the port.
Cullen Grummitt & Roe carried out master planning for the existing terminal and proposed developments, costing of proposed extensions to the existing facilities, valuation of existing facilities, analysis of ship movements and trade through the ports of Jawaharlal Nehru and Bombay and evaluation of existing operations. As part of this study, an engineer was permanently stationed in Mumbai for two months.
As a result of the feasibility study, our client succeeded in winning a subsequent privatisation tender for a new adjacent terminal. The tender has developed into the successful implementation of Nhava Sheva International Container Terminal. CGR was subsequently involved in this terminal development.
