ZHUHAI Port Holdings Group is embarking on the third phase of an upgrading project that will involve the construction of two post-Panamax containership berths on China's Gaolan island - the location of its main port that serves the trade in containerised shipments, oil and gas products, ore and coal.

The berths will have a combined length of 858.5 metres and annual handling capacity of 1.6 million TEU, reported Dredging and Port Construction.



The state-owned group said the works will cost US$378.5 million and take 30 months to complete, but it did not state when the project will commence.



The second phase of the upgrading project is due to be completed this year and will add 1.8 million TEU to Zhuhai's annual container handling capacity, after adding one berth for post-Panamax containerships, two berths for Panamax containerships, one berth for Handymax bulk carriers, two berths for Handysize bulk carriers, and one berth for general cargo vessels of up to 10,000 deadweight tonnes (dwt).



Zhuhai handled 2.3 million TEU in 2018, up from 655,000 TEU in 2008, equivalent to an annual growth rate of 13.4 per cent.



Zhuhai Port Holdings Group anticipates that container throughput could reach five million TEU in 2025 and eight million TEU in 2030.
