Sri Lanka: East Container Terminal Project on Right Track

The construction of Sri Lanka Ports Authority owned single berth of the Colombo Port Expansion Project (CPEP) is known as the East Container Terminal (ECT) and with the completion of its Phase I soon, it is expected to cater the shortfall in the capacity of container handling in the Port of Colombo.

The quay wall of the ECT is designed to allow the container vessels of 230,000 DWT to berth. The quay is designed to support a 65t ship to shore crane (STS), a 30 meter rail span, a back reach area and roads.

This project consists of two phases of the harbour infrastructure works such as construction of breakwaters, dredging for new harbour basin and navigation channel and rerouting of crude oil pipe line.

The other component includes construction of terminals and other related services.
