With great pleasure, we wish to inform you that Indomer has completed 15 years of service and is now entering into 16th year on 14th April 2013. On this happy and eventful occasion, it is indeed heartening to rewind our past and fruitful association with you.

Indomer gave a vivid account of the difficulties being faced by
project proponents on the development of coast based industrial projects. On the
Tamil Nadu coast alone there are about seven power projects, out of which three
power projects cleared by the MOEF had to be stopped due to legal entanglement.
It would be desirable if a regulatory mechanism be put in place by the
authorities concerned to restrict reappearances of the same cases before NGT
again and again on some grounds or the other resulting in abnormal delays
especially on projects which are halfway through.
This kind of ground reality would demotivate the genuinely interested investors, let alone the
consequential adverse impact on the development front. It appears that the
present situation would become the order of the day as learnt from some of the
clients with whom Indomer has some professional interaction.
Even though it would be difficult, if not impossible, to arrive at “one stop” solution to all the issues connected with the development of coast based facility yet some ways will have to be devised so that the legal issues do not come in the way of development process.
The solution to the problem is easier said than done! However, the government authorities should take a pragmatic view in the interest of development by tying the glaring loose ends in the system.
Adopt defined procedures, methods and latest technology, use relevant
equipments, tools and software, employ qualified and efficient personnel
achieve reliable results on ocean dynamics, its morphology and environment to meet customer needs and expectations by continually improving performance
