Kuryk Port Works in Full Swing

Works on the new pier at the Kuryk Port, Kazakhstan, are progressing as scheduled, according to the port officials. 

Currently, a new pier is being constructed on the port territory, which will open new opportunities for vessels intended for the transport of automotive equipment (Ro-Ro/Ro-Pax),” the port said.

The port also added that the works on dredging of the port water area with excavation in the volume of 730 thousand cubic meters have been completed.

At this stage of construction, works are being actively carried out to build an automobile pier and lay reinforced concrete blocks,” general director of the port Mirzabek Sakdaganov said.

It should be added that before the Kuryk Port was put into operation, transit cargo transportation from Kazakhstan was carried out exclusively through the port of Aktau. The limited transshipment capacity, unfavorable geographical conditions of Aktau port (the port is directly exposed to wind impact) negatively affected its profitability.

The first vessel, sent from the Kuryk, belonged to Azerbaijan. On December 7, 2016, the “Shahdag” ferry vessel of the Azerbaijan Caspian Shipping Company was put into operation at the testing phase.
