GANDHINAGAR : The Gujarat Maritime Board (GMB) has initiated a survey of 10 Greenfield sites along the state’s coastline for potential major port development. This move comes after 28 years, with the last port established being Mundra Port in 1995.

According to a newspaper report, to enhance port development in the state, a preliminary list of 10 potential sites has been identified for the establishment of major ports. Techno-feasibility studies have been launched to assess factors such as connectivity, land availability, draft (water depth required for ships to float), and other relevant aspects at these sites.

The 10 identified sites, as invited by the GMB, include Nargol in Valsad, Modhva in Kutch, Mithi Virdi in Bhavnagar, Positra in Dwarka, Dahej in Bharuch, Kuchdi in Porbandar, Sartanpar in Bhavnagar, Jakhau in Kutch, New Hazira in Surat, and Chanch in Amreli.

The state government plans to set up these ports over a 25-year period. Alongside the development of Greenfield ports, an assessment of the potential for expanding existing brownfield ports will also be undertaken.
