VIDEO: Poti Port Development Plan Introduced
APM Terminals has just released a video about the future development program of the largest port in Georgia – Poti Port.
APM Terminals Poti recently completed a comprehensive study for the port master plan to drive and accommodate future cargo flows through Georgia and neighboring Armenia and Azerbaijan. With the completion of the Inland Container Terminal last year, APM Terminals has taken the first step towards executing this large scale port expansion.
The next phase of the expansion plan, with projected completion in 2018, includes two new deep water berths able to accommodate vessels of 9,000 TEU capacity and an annual throughput capacity of one million TEUs.
The planned new quay to be constructed in front of the existing Inland Container Terminal, will enable full integration of the terminal yard, road and rail infrastructure into the expanded deep-water Mega-Port facility.
With a water depth of up to 16 meters, the port will be able to accommodate the largest vessels calling the Black Sea.
