Project Components

The current facilities at Terminal No. 5, built in the early 1960s, have become obsolete. They have not been used for docking of ships and transshipment of goods for many years. The planned work includes reconstruction of the wharf, dredging of the seabed, as well as redevelopment of the parking lot and access roads.
More specifically, the work to be carried out is as follows*:
Remove most of the existing dock as well as the unused loading ramp;
Backfill areas subject to tides behind the existing quay over an area of 3,200 square meters;
Excavate or dredge an area of approximately
21,320 square meters, to achieve a minimum draft of 10.2 meters;
Build a steel sheet pile facade with an approximate length of 192 meters for the berthing of ships with a tonnage of up to 40,000 tonnes.
* The figures are estimates, which will be clarified with the detailed engineering work.
