A new dry bulk terminal will be built on the north side of the Black Sea Poti port thanks to an agreement signed between APM Terminals Poti (APMT) and Poti New Terminals Corporation (PNTC).
As part of the agreement, APMT will invest in the construction of a new breakwater, 400 meters of quay wall and dredging of up to 13.5 meters of ship draft, while PNTC will invest in the construction of a new dry bulk terminal which will include a patio area and rail connection to Poti.
It is an important milestone in reaching our ambition to develop the best-in-class logistics solution at Poti port, which involves a modern dry bulk facility capable of accommodating Panamax vessels and handling various types of cargo on 25 hectares of the custom area. This infrastructure will make the supply chain more efficient and effective for local and regional cargo owners”, said managing director of APM Terminals Poti Keld Mosgaard Christensen.
The new dry bulk terminal will be built during the first phase of the port construction project and will create an additional capacity of approximately 10 million tonnes for bulk cargo, which will benefit l port stakeholders and customers, he said.
