Dahanu Port - classified by World Port Source as a "very small port" - is located in Dahanu, Maharashtra, India. In 2006, Steel Guru listed Dahanu as one of several small ports in Maharashtra that were gearing up to develop dedicated coal handling facilities.
A coal terminal at Dahanu Port was first proposed in the 1990s, but faced strong opposition from local fisherman. In 2015, prospects for a coal port near Dahanu were revived with the announcement of the new Wadhwan Port, to be built on reclaimed land approximately 10km southwest of Dahanu. It appears the proposal for a coal terminal at Dahanu has been cancelled.
