Port based Industry :
Shipbuilding and Ship repair Yard developed by M/s L&T Shipbuilding Limited, Chennai.
Details of Port Infrastructure/ Facilities :
- The Government in Industries Department had issued G.O.Ms.No.9 Industries (MIE.I) Dept. dated 23.01.2008, permitting M/s L&T Limited and M/s TIDCO to form a Joint venture company namely, M/s L&T Shipbuilding Limited, for developing a Shipbuilding Yard cum Minor Port Complex at Kattupalli.
- This was necessitated to enable Indian Shipbuilding Industry to build flotila for the Indian Navy and Coast Guard.
- Since a stand-alone shipyard cannot sustain a large-scale investment for a breakwater supported harbour, the above G.O. also permitted this company to handle other commercial cargo subject to the approval of Tamil Nadu Maritime Board.
- Accordingly, Tamil Nadu Maritime Board in its 57th Board meeting held on 06.02.2008 permitted this captive port to handle other commercial cargo in line with the Minor Port Development Policy.
- As such, the port facility here comprises of 1.5 Kms long Northern breakwater, 3 kms long Southern Breakwater, 5 Kms long Navigational channel to a depth of 15 mts. and other harbour related infrastructure.
- The Port is handling containers, general cargo etc., and also building offshore platforms etc., besides ship building and ship repairs.
