More land sought at Cuddalore for textile park

Staff Reporter

Encouraging response for the project: nine stakeholders confirm participation Nine stakeholders confirm participation

COIMBATORE: The Southern India Mills' Association (SIMA) has approached the State Industries Promotion Corporation of Tamil Nadu (SIPCOT) for allotment of more land for the textile processing park planned by the association in Cuddalore.

Nine units have already confirmed their participation in the proposed project and six more are expected to in a week.

SIPCOT has earmarked 300 acres at its Industrial Complex, Phase III, Cuddalore, for the park.

This will be entirely taken up by the 15 units. Since, at least seven more stakeholders are expected, SIMA has approached SIPCOT for more land, according to its Chairman, Vijay Venkataswamy.

He said in a release here on Friday that most of these would be greenfield projects.

With the additional land, the association would be able to accommodate even the smaller processing units from other parts of the State that were willing to re-locate to Cuddalore.

The association had appointed Gherzi Eastern Limited, Mumbai, as project consultants.

It would soon form an implementing agency that would maintain the common infrastructure in the park.

Mr. Venkataswamy said the processing activity in the State was concentrated in the decentralised sector and it was difficult to dispose of the effluents generated, as a "dedicated landfill area was not available."

Effluent treatment

SIMA had mooted the project at Cuddalore as the location had copious groundwater and treated effluents could be discharged into the sea after conforming to the stipulated pollution norms.

The processing units at the proposed park would look at water frugal technologies and biological treatment to dispose of the solid effluents.

They would also strive to recycle as much water as possible, he said.
