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
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.
Phase 9 Preliminary design
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.
