The evaluation of financial bid for developing an iron ore export terminal of 7.5 million tonnes per annum in Goa has been postponed by one month. The decision was taken by Mormugao Port Trust without assigning any reasons.

The Port Trust, which was to open the bids on Wednesday, had short listed 12 leading infrastructure companies including Essar Group; L&T Transco; GVK Developmental Projects; Gangavaram Port and Punj Lloyd Infrastructure; ILFS Maritime Infrastructure, IVRCL Infrastructure; SEW Infrastructure and Malaysia-based Pembinaan Redzai Sdn Bhd; Shapoorji Pallonji & Co; Sterlite Industries; IMC Ltd and ITD Cementation; Lanco Infratech; Adani Group and Salgaocar Mining Industries.

“The delay in getting the security clearance for the short listed candidates from the Home Ministry might have led to the postponement,” sources said.

The project involves developing a facility consisting of a new breakwater, berths, handling equipments and rail siding at a cost of Rs 1,100 crore as estimated by Mormugao Port Trust.
