A port is a location on a coast or shore containing one or more harbours where ships can dock and transfer people or cargo to or from land. Port locations are selected to optimize access to land and navigable water, for commercial demand, and for shelter from wind and waves. Ports with deeper water are rarer, but can handle larger, more economical ships. Since ports throughout history handled every kind of traffic, support and storage facilities vary widely, may extend for miles, and dominate the local economy. Some ports have an important military role. Project Charter:
The project charter outlines the scope, schedule, budget, milestones, and delivery strategy for design, construction, risks involved and mitigation measures associated with the project. Purpose:
Ports in India play a vital role in the overall economic development of the country. About 95 per cent by volume and 70 per cent by value of the country’s international trade is carried on through maritime transport. India has a total of 187 minor ports and 13 major ports spread across the nine maritime states. The Project focuses on the development of Cochin port with more infrastructures and as a more sustainable port with more improved amenities. Benefits of the Port include:
* Acts as a hinterland port.
* Improved infrastructure.
* Reduced Turn and around time.
* Creation of job opportunity.
* Improved international trade.
Requirements for the Project:
The requirements for the development of port at Cochin include: * Need to develop better infrastructure facilities in the port to handle traffic. * Need to act as a hinterland port....
