Gopalpur Ports completes beach front nourishment

Tuesday, 17 September 2019 | PNS | BHUBANESWAR

As part of its ongoing port construction project, the Gopalpur Ports Limited (GPL), which believes in an eco-friendly and sustainable infrastructure development, has deposited four million cubic meters of sand and other soil north of the port nourishing a five-km beach front stretch.

A significant portion of the material recovered from dredging of the port basin has been deposited along the shore north of the port near Arjeepalli village.

The conventional method of disposing of dredged material is a high-seas discharge. The GPL though chose to deposit it over five km at a considerable financial cost.

GPL MD Amit Saboo said, “An important aspect of our business is to ensure that our activities are environmentally and ecologically sustainable. We are committed to the highest standards of sustainable development.”

GPL HSE DGM Sanjay Thorat said, “The Gopalpur Port works with the Berhampur University for shorelinemonitoring and its related aspects.”
