Hai Phong to build two additional terminals
Vietnam’s Hai Phong Port has signed a US$310 million contract to build Terminals 3 and 4 to meet growing demand.
Phu Xuan Construction and Consulting has been contracted to carry out surveying, design and construction of a wharf, dredging and leveling works for the terminals on a 470,000m² site in the Lach Huyen port area.
The terminals, expected to be completed in 2024, can accommodate ships of up to 100,000 dwt and will have a total length of 750 metres. There will also be facilities for barges of around 160TEU.
Terminals 1 and 2 started operations in May 2018 and have processed approximately 1.1 million TEU per year.
Hai Phong Port wants to gradually expand and hopes that by 2025, it will have six container terminals and the capacity to accommodate ships of up to 8,000 TEU.
