Strategic Location

The Anaklia Port Project

 

  • Anaklia Deep Sea Port will be the first Georgian container port with a deep water, state-of-the-art infrastructure and equipment. These factors will create port productivity, efficiency and reliability along with a superior customer service. Set to open in 2020, Anaklia Deep Sea port will be designed over the course of 9 phases, with an aggregate investment of $2.5 billion. Anaklia Port’s depth will be 16 meters which enables to berth vessels up to 10,000 TEUs in capacity.

 

  • Georgia is situated in a strategic location on the “One Belt One Road” route, positioned along the shortest route between China and Europe, acting as a gateway for cargo to enter into the landlocked Central Asian and Caucasian regions. Anaklia Port unlocks a primary market (Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia) of 17 million people from the Caucasus region and another 147 million people from landlocked countries in Central Asia (Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan) and Northern Iran.

 

  • Anaklia, positioned in a strategic location on the ancient trade route represents a critical transport node on the New Silk Road between China and Europe. Anaklia port’s location, technical and infrastructure capabilities will be the primary drivers to attract cargo. In parallel the ongoing infrastructure developments in the region to support the “One Belt One Road” initiative is an important indicator of future elevated trade happening between China and Europe.

 

  • In the Summer of 2017 SSA Marine officially became the container terminal operator for the Anaklia Deep Sea Port. One of the world’s largest terminal operators, SSA Marine operates in 250 strategic locations, unmatched in their skill, know-how and productivity. SSA Marine will bring its world class experience in order to ensure that Anaklia port will act as a main gateway between European and Asian trade. In addition to bringing its expertise in port operations to the table, SSA Marine has become one of the strategic equity investors in Anaklia Development Consortium.

 

  • The Government of Georgia (GoG) is making significant contributions to aid in the development of Anaklia Port by providing the newest road and rail connectivity to the port site. In addition GoG is in charge of the resettlement program that is carried under international standards. The investment agreement signed between GoG and Anaklia Development Consortium is a 52-year concession according to the Build-Operate-Transfer (“BOT”) principle. Under this agreement, GoG has provided 330 ha of land and 225 ha of marine area to be developed, constructed, built and operated by ADC. On October 30, 2017, ADC has officially been awarded construction permits for Phase 1 area.

Phase 1 - Characteristics

Phase 1: The port set to have a capacity of 9.3 million tons – construction complete within 3 years of the creation of the “groundbreaking” port , which is capable of accommodating Post-Panamax vessels.

 

Phase 1 Characteristics

  • Total Quay Wall Length – 825 meters
  • Depth – 16 meters
  • Berths – 3
  • STS Cranes – 4 ramped up to 6
  • RTGs – 12 ramped up to 18
  • Breakwater – 1,600 meters
  • 95% + uptime of the port operations
  • Intermodal Yard – 10 Tracks, 800 meters each

 

ADC has completed a conceptual design for Anaklia Port and has submitted a master plan for all 9 phases. The design of the port will surpass its competitors  in the region with its superior connections to existing rail and road infrastructure, state-of-the-art equipment and communications infrastructure. Anaklia Port will have an ability to dock container vessels with a capacity of 10,000 TEUs. During phase 1, 60 ha of land will be used for the construction of the container terminal with the capacity of up to 900,000 TEUs and dry bulk cargo facility with the capacity of 1.5 million tons.

All 9 Phases

 

 

Phase 9 Preliminary design

  • Quay Wall – 2,250 meters
  • Breakwater – 2,940 meters (North and South)
  • Containers berths – 7 (59 million tons/year)
  • Dry/Break bulk berths – 2 (5 million tons/year)
  • Liquid bulk berths – 1 (36 million tons/year)
  • Total 9 phases – 100 million tons

 

Anaklia Deep Sea port will be developed with two breakwaters and one main quay wall. The main quay wall consists solely of container berths: seven berths are created in total. Two dry bulk + breakbulk berths are located inside the Northern Breakwater, together with the Marine Services/Coast Guard Facility. Three Liquid Bulk jetties are located inside the Southern breakwater. A one-way access channel is considered sufficient for the long-term vessel traffic in the port: this is tested and confirmed in the Traffic Impact Study. The turning circle is located in front of container berths 3 and 4, with a radius that is sufficient for turning the largest design vessels (10,000 TEU, 300m). The picture above presents the landside design for Anaklia Deep Sea Port. The container handling operations require most space. The container stacking areas are located directly behind the main quay wall. The liquid bulk storage is located behind the Intermodal Yard 3. The Dry Bulk + Breakbulk Terminal has the smallest footprint of all terminals. The storage area for this terminal is located adjacent to the RTG stack of the first container terminal and behind the truck gate of the first container terminal.
