Georgian Poti Port repairs berths
Azerbaijan, Baku, March 5 / Trend , E.Ismayilov/
The Georgian Poti port on the Black Sea overhauled the first and second berths for the first time in 30 years. The berths are intended for transporting petroleum products, the port said in a message posted on its official Web site. Both berths have been completely reconstructed.
The repairs were carried out in one year. Over $294,000 was spent on reconstruction and repairs.
The project to reconstruct the berths was developed by the Chernomorniiproekt Research Institute.
In June, the Porti Port Administration plans to reconstruct 14 berths into a container terminal and double its capacity. The administration allocated 11 million euro to implement the project. The project will be implemented in three stages.
Over 5 years, container traffic at the port has increased 25 percent. That is why it is necessary to build new container terminals with greater capacities. The project will be implemented within three years and cover 100 hectares.
The Poti Port has 15 terminals.Do you have any feedback? Contact our journalist at: [email protected]
