Date:2019-07-19    Source:Shantou Daily

On the morning of July 18, the first 100,000-ton container terminal of the Shantou Port Guang'ao Port Area Phase II Project, a key construction project of Guangdong Province and Shantou City, was built up and put into trial operation, which is also the first 100,000-ton professional container terminal launched in eastern Guangdong.
The Guang'ao Port Area Phase II Project has two 100,000-ton berths and one 10,000-ton container berth, with an annual design capacity of 1.25 million TEUs. The trial operation of the 100,000-ton container terminal in the Guang'ao Port Area improves the service capacity of Shantou Port for large liners and lays a solid foundation for the opening of direct ocean liners, and is a key step to make Shantou Port become a central port in eastern Guangdong. As the two 100,000-ton container berths of the Guang'ao Port Area Phase II Project have been put into operation, and the start-up works, Phase I and Phase II projects after transformation have entered into integrated operation, the comprehensive passing capacity of the Guang'ao Port Area will usher in leapfrog upgrade. The terminal can be berthed by large container ships with a capacity of more than 100,000 tons operating on American, Middle East and European routes to meet the needs of trunk liners for operation ship type and berthing timeliness. Furthermore, with the construction of three container berths in the Guang'ao Port Area Phase III Project, the port will definitely open more international shipping routes to-and-from Europe, America, Southeast Asia and Africa, and open domestic coastal port routes and increase their density. So, the Guang'ao Port Area is expected to soon become a professional container port with the highest grade, the most advanced facilities and the most complete functions in the ports of eastern Guangdong.
