Diversified across core economic sectors
Essar Shipping is India’s second largest private sector shipping company, which has the youngest fleet in the country with a combined deadweight tonnage of 1.12 million. This capacity is deployed through both spot market, and long-term contracts and CoAs (Contracts of Affreightment). The business has invested in sustainable technologies like paperless navigation, fitting scrubbers on-board to make vessel emissions IMO compliant, and Green Passports. It is also the first and only Indian shipping company to be certified by American Bureau of Shipping for compliance with the ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004 and OHSAS 18001:2007 standards for the operation of its bulk carriers and tankers.
The Company also operates an oil & gas drilling business that provides contract drilling services to oil & gas companies across the globe. This business owns a fleet of land and offshore rigs.
With a 40-year track record, Essar Shipping has invested USD 6.61 billion in building and modernising its fleet. The Company has increased its cargo handling from 17 MT in FY 2017-18 to 19 MT in FY 2018-19, and is aiming to clock 22 MT in the current financial year.
The Company is a pioneer in coastal shipping in India and has a 20 percent market share in the dry bulk cargo segment. With the Indian port sector being driven by high growth in external trade, and the Government targeting a port capacity of 3,200 MT by 2020, the Indian shipping sector and Essar Shipping are both poised for a significant upswing in maritime trade. The regulatory environment supports further improvement of the sector with government policies, like ROFR (Right of First Refusal) for Indian Controlled Tonnage and tonnage tax benefits.
The company aims to grow by adding tanker assets to its portfolio aimed at securing captive business in the European region. Essar Shipping has also joined the worldwide effort to fight climate change—its entire fleet has switched over to IMO-complaint fuel, capping sulphur content at 0.5% (down from 3.5% previously), with effect from 1st January 2020.
