Works at Anaklia are on schedule, with 80% of the early land works of the first phase of the Anaklia Deep Sea Port already complete.
The Anaklia Development Consortium (ADC) and land work contractor ‘Black Sea Group’ carried out the work.
A 110-hectare area of fertile (humus) soil has so far been removed and 100% of the construction area has been cleared of waste, including buildings and other structures and hazardous waste.
Construction works are ongoing. A 2.5 km amelioration channel has been dug and the construction of pipes and a water pump station are underway.
During all stages of land construction works, there is constant surveillance of flora and fauna in order to ensure the appropriate environmental conditions in the construction process.
The construction works on the territory of the Anaklia Deep Sea Port are underway in compliance with both Georgian and international safety standards. Consortium representatives continue meetings with local residents about their safety rules and expected construction activities. Locals were employed in the phase of early land works.
The Anaklia Port’s early land works are being carried out by Black Sea Group, chosen by the ADC in December 2017. As a result of an open tender, according to tender documents published on www.etenders.ge, the company was chosen from among 14 candidates.
In the summer of 2018, the first marine construction of the port is planned. Specialized dredging equipment for marine and land works will be brought to the Anaklia territory. At this stage of works, 5 million cubic meters of material will be collected for the purpose of freeing 110 hectares of land from the sea bed.
Completion of the first phase of the first deep sea port of Georgia and the beginning of operations is planned for late 2020.
