    Business Line reported that JSW Group-owned South West Port Ltd has stopped cargo handling operations at Mormugao Port Trust from April 1, after the Goa State Pollution Control Board (GSPCB) revoked consent to operate the facility citing non-compliance with approval terms. The two multi-purpose berths run by South West Port from 2004 play a key role in bringing raw materials and shipping finished products for JSW’s 12 million tonne (mt) steel plant at Vijayanagar in neighbouring Karnataka.

South West Port has filed an application with the National Green Tribunal (NGT) requesting permission to re-start the facility for handling 5.48 mt of cargo, the maximum volume set by GSPCB while granting permission to operate initially. South West Port, according to GSPCB, has been handling cargo in excess of this limit, sometimes even double the cap, posing health hazards to people of Vasco town. The excess cargo handled can invite a penalty of ?5,000 a day.

South West Port has refuted the charge that handling more than the GSPCB cap was raising pollution levels since most of the cargo is evacuated by rail wagons. “We run the facility in a safe and clean manner. We don’t use road at all for evacuating coal; we use only rail,” a JSW official said.

Since shutting Momugao operations, JSW has been shipping its cargo through Krishnapatnam port and New Mangalore Port Trust, entailing extra costs. 金属展-冶金展-2018广州巨浪国际金属暨冶金工业展览会-亚洲最大金属冶金展-巨浪展览-2018 China(Guangzhou)Int’l Metal &Metallurgy Exhibition-metal exhibition -metal exhibition Metal exhibition, Metal expo, 2018 Metal exhibition, 2018 Metal expo, China Metal exhibition, China Metal expo, steel exhibition, steel expo, 2018 steel exhibition, 2018 steel expo, China steel exhibition, China steel expo
