Master Plan

Kakinada Special Economic Zone

East Godavari District, India

This new master planning project is helping the client position its development to attract major global industries in a setting with solid infrastructure, sensitivity to local conditions, and conducive to conducting international business.

Working with staff from six CH2M HILL business groups, IDCA is leading the planning process to develop a deep-water port Special Economic Zone over an area of 10,000 acres (4,000 hectares) for importing and exporting products in a variety of markets including petroleum, biotech, and agricultural. The team includes staff from CH2M HILL's Power, Water, Transportation, Industrial & Advanced Technology, Energy & Chemicals, and Industrial Systems business groups, with CH2M HILL's Delhi office actively supporting the project.

IDCA's scope includes:

  • A Site Appreciation and Strength, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats (SWOT) analysis.
  • Two conceptual master plans to conceive refinery and non-refinery site alternatives.
  • A land use plan that identifies land use, spatial arrangements and functions for industrial, port, and commercial areas, a power hub, a transportation system including road and rail, open space and parks areas, recreational areas, and a services plan for infrastructure and other utilities.
  • A Conceptual Infrastructure Plan within the Special Economic Zone area that organizes the development's transportation network, water supply system, seawater intake system for the power hub, drainage network, sewerage and industrial effluent system, power supply system, solid waste management, gas distribution system, and other infrastructure that might be required related to operations for refineries, petrochemical industries, a thermal-based power hub, and solar manufacturing.

The project is an outgrowth of IDCA's previous work for one of the client group's primary members, GMR Group, a major Indian infrastructure developer with interests in airports, energy, highways, urban infrastructure, and Special Economic Zones. The new development is intended to operate in harmony with the active fishing industry along the site's coast, and is expected to produce a sizeable number of jobs in the region.
