Incorporated in 1997, South West Port marks a major milestone in the history of JSW Infrastructure as it is the company’s first port operation. South West Port provides vital logistic support to the JSW Steel plant at Vijayanagar, Karnataka.
A mechanized terminal facility in Goa on the west coast of India, it was established primarily to handle the logistic needs of the JSW Steel plant at Toranagallu, Karnataka. With the expansion of the steel plant requiring larger movements of cargo, setting up its own terminal became a strategic cost-cutting and efficiency measure for the JSW Group.
Because of its convenient location, South West Port proves itself a cost effective port for the efficient handling of coal and ore imports and finished steel exports. It currently operates two dedicated bulk cargo berths at Mormugoa Port Trust at Goa, on a Build, Own, Operate and Transfer (BOOT) licence agreement.
The terminal handles over a hundred vessels every year and transacts nearly 6.5 million tonnes of cargo. The total capacity is 7.5 million tonnes and the company plans to expand the facility soon.
