The first phase of the terminal project will give emphasis on the movement of passengers between Hazira in Surat to Mumbai. The plan is to extend the servive to other coastal locations in Gujarat, reducing road congestion, fuel consumption and air pollution.
The Passenger Ferry Terminal at Hazira received permission by the Gujarat Maritime Board (GMB), with EBTL taking charge of designing and constructing the facility. The facility includes both marine structures, like landing platform, passenger walkway and floating pontoon, as well as shore-based facilities, like a terminal building, cafeteria and vehicle parking area.
The project was completed in time, with dredgers ensuring the draft necessary for operating the terminal.
I congratulate my team for building the passenger terminal in just eight months after receiving GMB’s permission to initiate this project. It was a challenging task that tested our technical expertise and project execution capabilities. We are proud to have commissioned the project in record time to pave the way for the launch of this revolutionary ferry service
