GVK is one of India’s leading business groups and conglomerates with a strong pedigree in energy and infrastructure. Its portfolio includes power generation projects, oil and gas exploration, major airports in India (Mumbai and Bangalore), construction and operation of privately owned toll roads in India, port development, hospitality and life sciences.
In September 2011, GVK entered Australia through the acquisition of a majority interest in Hancock Coal Pty Ltd and its projects in Queensland.
Through this acquisition, GVK is continuing Hancock’s pioneering development of the Galilee Basin in Central Queensland. The Alpha and Kevin’s Corner Projects will supply 60Mtpa of high quality thermal coal to the export market from 2015 via a dedicated logistics chain, which includes a privately owned standard gauge rail line, and the “T3” coal terminal and berths at the port of Abbot Point.
Bulk samples from the Alpha test pit have undergone successful industrial scale testing in power stations in South Korea and China.
Responsibility and sustainability underline GVK’s projects and business. Above all, GVK, its employees, contractors and partners operate in a socially, economically and environmentally responsible manner.
GVK’s vision in Australia is ambitious and challenging, but achievable – ‘To be the premier, most reliable coal supplier to the world enabling better lives.’
