The Cochin Port Trust (CPT), India, has invited tenders for the establishment of a cement bagging plant, the Times of India reports.
The port will lease six acres of land for a period of 30 years near the Q5 berth at Ernkaulam Wharf for the new plant. The berth has a draft of 10 meters and rail tracks pass very close to it. The new plant is set to become operational in two years, a port spokesman told the newspaper.
Ambuja Cement already operates a bagging plant in the port area while UltraTech is setting up another, according to the daily.
