Diversified across core economic sectors
Essar Shipping is one of India’s largest private sector shipping company, owning & operating marine assets for more than four decades. The company is engaged in deploying its assets in the spot markets, COA’s (Contracts of Affreightment) and long-term contracts. The business has also 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 its operation of its bulk carriers and tankers.
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.
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.
Essar Shipping has invested USD 6.61 billion in building and modernising its fleet since 2009. With the Indian port sector being driven by high growth in external trade, and the Government targeting a port capacity of 3,500 MT by 2022, Essar Shipping and the Indian shipping sector 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 mordernising its fleet and equipping its portfolio with newer technologies that are low carbon emitting and fuel efficient.
