M. M. Kamath

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


The New Mangalore Port is located on the West Coast of India. The port has been developed in three stages. The third stage development was to provide port facilities to cater to the requirements of a three million tonnes per annum (MTPA) grass root refinery being established near Mangalore. The important work relating to the port facilities was deepening the existing port to handle 65000/85000 DWT oil tankers drawing a draft of 14.0 m. This included rock dredging using underwater drilling and blasting. An attempt has been made in this paper to briefly describe the capital dredging carried out during the first and second stage developments of the port. The capital dredging carried out for the third stage development has been covered in more detail.
