New Delhi: Union Minister of Ports, Shipping and Waterways (MoPSW) and Ayush Shri Sarbananda Sonowal today launched ‘SAGAR SAMRIDDHI’, an online dredge monitoring system, to speed the Ministry’s ‘Waste to Wealth’ project. Sudhansh Pant, Secretary of MoPSW, and other top officials from the Ministry, Major Ports, and Organisations also attended this seminar.
This system has been developed by National Technology Centre for Ports, Waterways and Coasts (NTCPWC) the technological arm of MoPSW. The new technology brings in marked improvement against the old system of Draft & Loading Monitor (DLM) system. The system will bring in synergy among multiple input reports like daily dredging report, the pre and post dredging survey data before processing and producing real time dredging report.
The ‘Sagar Samriddhi’ monitoring system will also allow Daily and monthly progress Visualisation, Dredger performance and downtime monitoring, easy location track data with snapshot of loading, unloading and idle time .This system strengthens the Atmanirbhar Bharat and Make in India vision of PM Modi.
“Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi gave us the mantra of ZERO DEFECT and ZERO EFFECT, and MoPSW is following his vision,” Shri Sonowal stated on the occasion. In this day and age, it is critical to use technology to monitor the system so that human mistake is minimised.
“The Major Ports will be able to use the Online Dredging Monitoring System from now on, bringing about substantial changes in project implementation and lowering dredging costs through the usage of dredged materials. This will contribute to environmental sustainability while also lowering port operational expenses, resulting in greater transparency and efficiency”, he added.
