THE inland Port of Yingtan in Jiangxi province north of adjacent coastal Fujian province, is to start the construction of a US$636 million cargo terminal to improve domestic waterway transport, reports Colchester's Seatrade Maritime News.

Yingtan (pop 1.1 million) is a prefecture-level city in the east of Jiangxi province. Today, it is a major rail, though best known as the Capital of Copper, and purports to be the birthplace of Taoism.



The project will consist 19 cargo berths including four multi-purpose berths and two general cargo berths in Yujiang port area, with an annual handling capacity of three million tonnes and 60,000 TEU, as well as 13 cargo berths in Guixi port area with an annual handling capacity of 6.8 million tonnes and 150,000 TEU.



The project will be divided into three phases with the first phase project of Yujiang and Guixi to be completed in 2021 and 2022, constructing two berths and three berths respectively.



Yingtan is a core inland port in Jiangxi province, and the new project will be able to promote fast development of local shipping business, said Xu Zhixian, deputy director of Yingtan Department of Transport.



The port project is invested by the state-owned Jiangxi Provincial Port & Waterway Construction Investment Group, which is engaged in port and shipping infrastructure construction, investment and management.
