The Nam Cua Viet specialised seaport will be built on 19 ha within the 120ha Cua Viet port in Trieu Phong district in May. Funded by the CFG Quang Tri Co. Ltd, the project is set to cost 640 billion VND (27.52 million USD).
It consists of two phases. The first phase, lasting until 2020, is expected to construct two wharves serving ships weighing 3,000 – 5,000 DWT and capable of handling 0.2 – 0.5 million tonnes of throughput per year. The second phase will kick off after 2020, building another two wharves for boats of similar or bigger sizes compared to those in the first phase, with annual throughput capacity of 1 – 1.4 million tonnes.
In September, the construction of the 685ha My Thuy port is scheduled to begin in the East – South Quang Tri Economic Zone in Hai An commune, Hai Lang district. The three-phase project, costing in excess of 14.2 trillion VND (611.2 million USD), will build 10 wharves, each capable of handling 100,000 DWT vessels.
The area aims at providing port services for the economic zone, local industrial parks, and goods in transit from Laos and norteastern Thailand on the East-West economic corridor.
