Mormugao Port Authority (MPA), in partnership with Jindal South West (JSW), will soon build a new dome structure with an investment of Rs. 180 million to reduce coal pollution. Union Minister of State for Ports and Shipping, Shripad Naik, announced the development during the World Environment Day celebrations at MPA. Dr. N. Vinodkumar, Chairman of MPA, revealed that the port is committed to reducing pollution and investing in renewable energy.

Dr. Vinodkumar stated that JSW will invest in the dome-shaped structure under the PPP scheme, with construction expected to end by 2025 to reduce coal pollution further. In addition, MPA has partnered with GEDA to install a solar power plant, which will enable the port to utilize renewable energy sources. MPA is also planning to incorporate environmental protection measures like blue-green initiatives to reduce pollution and burden on energy.

As part of the Harit Sagar policy launched by the Department of Shipping, MPA is taking five key actions to achieve a green environment and meet climate goals. These measures include planting 5,000 trees to develop a green belt inside and around the port, using treated water from Goa’s sewers for dust abatement measures, deploying a 3MW solar array to meet the port’s electrical needs, and enhancing real-time monitoring of environmental quality parameters with the Goa State Pollution Control Board (GSPCB).

The dome-shaped structure and other green initiatives taken by MPA are a step forward towards executing the sustainable development goals. It’s appreciative of MPA’s commitment to reducing pollution and curbing environmental degradation. With these measures, MPA is not just reducing environmental pollution but also contributing to the renewable energy cause significantly.
