China: Meizhou Bay Improvement Project to Bring Major Benefits

The objective of the Fujian Meizhou Bay Navigation Improvement Project for China is to improve the capacity of the main navigation channel in Meizhou Bay and enhance the management capacity of Meizhou Bay Harbor Administration Bureau (MBHAB).

There are two components to the project, the first component being Improvement of main navigation channel.

This component will upgrade the main navigation channel in Meizhou Bay to a 300,000 Deadweight Tons (DWT) standard that will allow for unidirectional tide-independent navigation of Q-MAX LNG ships, as well as unidirectional tide-dependent navigation of bulk cargo ships up to 400,000 DWT.

The main navigation channel starts from Dazuo sea area outside the bay-mouth to Luoyu operation area for a total length of 52.1 kilometers. About 21.5 kilometers of the existing main channel, mostly inside the Bay, will be widened and deepened through dredging and rock blasting. The second component is the capacity building to enhance management capacity.

This component includes technical studies and training programs that are designed to build the MBHAB’s management capacity so as to improve the operational efficiency and competitiveness of Meizhou Bay Ports.
