Merely 3 weeks after the ABG Haldia Bulk Terminals pull-out, the Kolkata Port Trust (KoPT) plans to kickstart the re-tendering process of berth numbers 2 and 8 at the Haldia Dock Complex (HDC) by holding a pre-bid meeting.
"We are holding it there as it may help bidders to have a first-hand view of the location. The entire bidding process will take at least 6-8 months to complete. The price bid submission date is kept as December 3. We will issue the letter of intent by December or January only," said an official of HDC. However, the port has not kept any reserve price, according to Exim News Service.
