BALIAPAL, DEC 9, 2022
Subarnarekha Port Private Limited (SPPL) has opened a new office at Kalipada, near to the project, in Baliapal Block of Balasore district. It was inaugurated by Basta MLA Nityanand Sahoo and Balasore Collector Dattaray Bhausaheb Shinde in the presence of SPPL Executive Director Prakash Singh on Thursday.
The new office is equipped with modern amenities and is in line with SPPL’s initiative to mark its presence in Baliapal Block making it easier for staff to work from an office nearer to the project site.
Speaking on the occasion, MLA Sahoo appreciated the initiative of the company on opening the new office at Baliapal Block and congratulated all present at the event.
Collector Dattatraya Bhausaheb Shinde said that it is an important milestone and demonstrates SPPL’s commitment to begin the project construction on a fast track mode. The construction of road connecting to Subarnarekha Port will begin soon followed by other activities.
The event was attended by company officials, PRI members and community members.
Over the last few months, SPPL has been taking many measures for the community including skill development, organising health camps, providing drinking water facilities, engaging with the local SHGs, etc.
Subarnarekha Port Private Limited was incorporated in 2008 to undertake the development of the proposed port adjacent to the mouth of Subarnarekha River near Chaumukh village in Balasore district. In September 2018, Tata Steel acquired majority equity stake in the holding company of SPPL for development of the port.
