PIBT aims to apply innovations & technologies in the bulk cargo handling by implementing the best environmental standards for coal handling in compliance with the World Bank Group EHS guidelines. Its objective is to operate at International levels of efficiency and establish industry standards for most efficient cargo handling. PIBT intends to be the market leader for bulk cargo handling facility in Pakistan. The terminal will be an integral part of the extensive coal supply chain across the country. The terminal would help boost related businesses around the seaport including coal based power plants and cement factories, besides generating employment around number of professionals and unskilled workers. By modernizing the country’s port infrastructure, the terminal will help reduce the cost of importing commodities, to ensure faster and more cost - effective transport of cargo. PIBT is setting up the country’s first Coal, Clinker and Cement Terminal at an estimated cost of US $285 million at Port Qasim. Bulk material will be transported to and from the Jetty towards Storage area via a conveyor belt. A wind fence will be placed along sides of the stockpile area to protect the stockpiles from the prevailing wind at the site

Terminal Layout

The layout of the coal, clinker and Cement terminal development at Port Qasim comprises the construction of a jetty of upto 460 m in length, a trestle with the separate conveyor belts for coal and cement/clinker connecting the jetty with the storage yard of approximate 2.5 kilometer in length, and the 62 acres of reclaimed storage yard with on-shore facilities.


Terminal Storage Facilities

Coal: upto 1 million tons of Coal Storage at any given time.

Cement: 5 cement silos of 10,000 tons each. 50000 tons at any given time

Clinker: upto 200,000 tons of Clinker storage capacity at any given time.


Environment Friendly

PIBT will also be the first handling facility to comply with the World Bank’s standards of environment pollution control and ensure a pollution free environment at Port Qasim. Water sprinkling system shall be installed from jetty head to storage yard to minimize dust emission. Pollution control will also be achieved by installing wind fence around the coal stacking area.


Corporate & Social Responsibility

PIBT successfully planted mangroves on 520 hectares of land as against target area of 500 hectares during the year 2012-14. During the period survival of plant was observed to be around 76%.
PIBT has planted two main species of mangroves, Avicennia marina and Rhizophora mucronata at a density of approximately 1,100 plants per hectare over an area of 520 hectares in the following locations: PIBT base camp, Hafeez Island, Kangwari, Ratto Kot, Khiprianwala, and Chann creeks in PQA jurisdiction. Furthermore, PIBT also carried out replanting and assisted natural regeneration of mangroves in the areas where required.
After five years the plantations will act as physical barrier against all natural and manmade disasters and provide breeding grounds for marine and terrestrial life.
Moreover PIBT has started plantation of mangroves along its trestle bridge over an area of 36,000sq.m which will support dust emission control plan and help sustain the ecosystem.
