Nana Layja Integrated Maritime Complex

  • The Project is an Integrated Maritime Complex located at Nana Layja in Mandvi Taluka, Kutch District, Gujarat at the mouth of Gulf of Kutch and is 95 km from Kandla and 65 km from Bhuj

  • Infrastructure Leasing and Financial Services (IL&FS) Group through its subsidiary/ies, is developing the Integrated Maritime Complex (the Project) comprising:
    • Shipbuilding/repair yard
    • Energy & Multi-product Special Economic Zone (SEZ) / Free Trade Warehousing Zone (FTWZ)
    • Captive Jetties including LNG Terminal

  • IMICL is undertaking the project development activities for the Integrated Maritime Complex where IL&FS is the co-developer

Shipyard :-
  • The Shipyard shall be a state-of-art facility capable of building & repairing a wide range of vessels including, OSVs, bulk carriers and other vessels
  • The Yard shall cater to construction, repair and maintenance of commercial vessels ensuring timely delivery, optimal operational productivity, safety, environmental care, high quality standards and minimum operating cost
SEZ/FTWZ :-
  • A Marine & Energy SEZ catering primarily to shipbuilding ancillary industries (shipping & naval offset industries, warehousing zones , fabrication and assembly units ), heavy engineering units, power plants and logistics hub etc will be established
  • A dedicated Utility corridor for evacuation of cargo to-from the SEZ to the captive jetties shall enable faster & cost effective movement of goods
Captive Jetties :-
  • An all-weather captive jetties facility with breakwaters built for a total capacity of 22.5 MTPA (coal, multi-purpose &LNG berths)

  • Captive Jetties shall be integrated with the same harbour as that of the Shipyard to facilitate the logistics flow of the import & export of raw materials and goods of the SEZ units
  • The investment estimated is over Rs. 10 billion
    • India currently accounts for only 1.4% of the total global shipbuilding industry. It is seen that there has been a gradual shift of shipbuilding focus from Europe to Asia because of the availability of low-cost skilled labour. However, with limited effective capacity for ship build/repair available in India; the Indian Shipbuilding /Ship-repair industry carries a significant potential in the years to come to leverage on this opportunity

    • Nana Layja, which lies on the west coast of India, is strategically located especially for commercial ship repair, by virtue of its proximity to shipping lanes for vessels trading between the Middle East and Asia and is on-route to India's business ports of Kandla and Mundra The Ship Building Policy of the Gujarat Maritime Board encourages the development of “Marine Shipbuilding Park” (Cluster of shipyards) in the state and aims at making Gujarat the Hub of Indian Shipbuilding Industry. The proposed development of the Maritime Complex at Nana Layja falls in line with the Shipbuilding Policy of the State An integrated facility of a Shipyard and the SEZ shall create backward and forward linkages of various ancillary and related components of the maritime sector. A marine ancillary industrial cluster in the region would also be able to cater to the number of shipyards upcoming in the state of Gujarat The integrated facility, supported by a common pool of resources, would be able to generate economies of scale and scope thereby increasing external competitiveness and productivity
