NIWE proposes jetty at TN’s Dhakushkodi

The National Institute of Wind Energy (NIWE), part of the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, plans to build a jetty at Dhakushkodi, Tamil Nadu (TN) to give a fillip to tourism, reports The Hindu Business Line. As an alternative to the train to Rameswaram, it would give tourists an opportunity to arrive in ferries. NIWE wants the jetty both for itself and for wind energy companies that would put up offshore projects in the Gulf of Mannar.

It is expected that in a few years the region could be buzzing with the activities of offshore wind projects. NIWE has submitted a proposal to the Ministry seeking INR 400 crore for building the jetty. Speaking at the second UK India Offshore Wind Summit, organised in Chennai jointly by the UK government and the Global Wind Energy Council on Friday, Rajesh Katyal, Director, NIWE, said the proposal was for constructing a 600-meter-long jetty. The sea-end of the jetty would be a 100-meter, 12-meter-wide ‘berthing jetty’ and the rest of it would be ‘approach jetty’. (Source: The Hindu Business Line)
