Busan Port Introduces Expansion Plans

The Korean Government has announced plans to add further 15 berths to its flagship Busan New Port which will increase container capacity by 15.8 million TEU.

The new facilities in the south of the country will be a mix of container terminals, feeder terminals and multi-purpose terminals and work will begin in stages based on actual cargo demand and under the coordination of central government.

BPA President KIM Li-tack said: “We are on track to achieve a total container throughput of 20 million TEU by the end of this year and our additional expansion plans will build on this success to cement the position of the port of Busan as one of the very top container ports in the world as well as the leading transshipment hub in northeast Asia. Alongside the creation of 15 new berths we have exciting plans to develop an LNG bunkering facility by 2018 and continued growth of our logistics distripark.”

Development began at Busan New Port in 1994 and today it operates 22 berths with an additional eight currently under construction. Total container throughput at Busan Port Authority (BPA) reached 18.68 million in 2014 with the New Port accounting for 64% or 11.93 million TEU.
