 India's New Mangalore Port Trust (NMPT) Chairman P.C. Parida said the port is confident of completing work on the proposed Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) terminal which shall be operational in 2017.

 
NMPT is the first Indian port to start the Ro-Ro service from Mangaluru to Hazira port, he said.
 
According to Parida, the LNG terminal will help provide clean fuel at cost-effective rates to citizens.
 
Parida said the fire-fighting facilities at the port are being upgraded to handle VLGC (very large gas carrier) vessels. This shall be operational by September.
 
The port had registered a growth of 15 per cent in container traffic. Based on Boston Consultant Groups report, port has taken steps to increase container traffic further and further develop container terminal by outsourcing container handling. 
 
NMPT has given all the facilities to encourage coastal movement of cargo. It is the first Indian port to start the Ro-Ro (roll-on roll-off) service for trucks from New Mangalore to Hazira port, he said.
