Fascinating port projects

The largest port relocation project in history

In 2016 MSC PSA European Terminal (MPET) in Antwerp, formerly known as the MSC Home Terminal, has moved its operations from the Delwaidedock on the right bank of the river Scheldt to the Deurganckdock on the left bank.

The EUR 400 mln project started in November, 2014. The terminal on the left bank has been expanded to an annual capacity of 9 mln TEU. Additional plot of 120 ha was created, making the total yard area 240 ha.

A special story has been the move of 21 STS cranes and straddle carriers from the right bank to the left. The 18km journey was effected by barges.

Victoria International Container Terminal (VICT) recently celebrated the completion of its terminal in Webb Dock in Melbourne, Australia ahead of schedule.
In 2014, VICT signed a 26-year concession with the Port of Melbourne Corporation to build, operate and expand the container terminal at Webb Dock East, becoming the third terminal operator at the Port of Melbourne.
The development goes on in phases. Phase 1, which has been officially completed now, provides one 330m berth, 23.7 hectares of yard and off-dock area with fully automated operations from the gate to the quayside to deliver an annual capacity of 350,000 TEU. Additionally, a 10 hectares empty container park for 200,000 TEU will service the terminal.

New Deep-Water Container Terminal in Iberia

Ferrol Container Terminal, Spain, owned by Yilport Holding, has marked its start of operations by receiving the first vessel call earlier in April 2017.
The port of Ferrol is located on the Atlantic coast in north-western Spain, in the province of A Coruña in Galicia. It handles general cargo, dry and liquid bulk. About 15 years ago the port initiated an ambitious project – to construct an outer deep-water port (Puerto Exterior) at the reclaimed area with the aim to increase the capacity of Ferrol and attract more cargo by creating a new Atlantic hub for the Iberian Peninsula. The development has been difficult, impeded by constant delays...

India develops a deep-water port in Iran

Chabahar is Iran's only oceanic port, as it is located on the southeastern tip of Iran, on the Gulf of Oman. Lying outside the Persian Gulf, it is easily accessed from India's western coast, bypassing Pakistan.

Last May India and Iran signed the Memorandum of Understanding stating that India is to develop and operate a container terminal in this small multipurpose port.

The development of Chabahar is regarded as a counterbalance to growing China’s influence in the region and in particular, its progress at Pakistan’s Gwadar Port, where state-owned China Overseas Port Holding Company was granted a 40-year lease in April.

Chabahar is to become part of the North-South transport corridor linking Iran, Afghanistan and India with Russia and Europe via the Caspian Sea.

The Indian government is hopeful that the strategic Chabahar Port in Iran will be operational by the end of 2018.

Georgia to construct Anaklia deep sea port

Anaklia is a new ambitious project of Georgia to build the country’s first deep sea port on the eastern coast of the Black Sea. The former small naval base in Soviet times, Anaklia was intended to become a resort with a marina and lots of hotels, but in 2013 this decision was changed for a multipurpose 100 mln tons port, which is expected to be part of the Chinese new Silk Road connecting China to Europe.
The USD 2.5 bln port project is to be developed in 9 phases, with USD 586 mln already allocated by the Anaklia Development Consortium for Phase I, when a container terminal and a rail yard will be constructed.

But will it materialise?

In my opinion neighborhood of this port (Abkhazia occupied by Russia) is a big problem and dangerous for this localization. Does Anaklia port is too big for Georgia? I don't believe in Silk Route from China to Europe with necessity of handling in ports of Caspian Sea and then on Black Sea. Every handling is additional $.
