GUANGZHOU plans to build two 50,000-tonne berths at the main terminal of the Nansha short-sea terminal project.
According to the plan, the secondary terminal will have one 3,000-tonne and two 2,000-tonne berths for bulk, as well as one 2,000- and two 1,000-tonne automobile ro/ro berths. At the back of the terminal, warehouses and stack yards will be built.
Nansha near-sea terminal project costs CNY1.2 billion (US$192.19 million), covering a land area of 535,940 square metres and a sea area of about 70,000 square metres, taking up a coast line of 1,340 metres. The whole terminal will have a total capacity 4.93 million tonnes in terms of tonnage, and 100,000 vehicles in terms of ro/ro.
The environmental assessment report of the terminal was recently publicised, which says the terminal will not have obvious effect on the ecological environment of its nearby area.
