Today, the Anaklia Deep Sea Port in the Republic of Georgia is set to become an emerging transport and logistics hub of the region. A new development is underway on the west coast of Georgia that will build 3,000 feet of container and bulk wharves and more than 250 acres of container, intermodal, and bulk storage yards.
At the project launch ceremony, the prime minister of Georgia, Giorgi Kvirikashvili, said, “With no exaggeration, today we’re starting the biggest project of the twenty-first century Georgia, the construction of the Anaklia Deep Sea Port. This is the beginning of a huge transformation and change in our country.”
The project owner, Anaklia Development Consortium, will be collaborating with BergerABAM on the overall design and construction that features over 20 million cubic yards of dredging, a 5,000-foot-long breakwater, soil improvement/reclamation, paving, utilities, trackwork, and buildings.
Mamuka Khazaradze, Anaklia Development Consortium cofounder said, “We’re not just constructing a port here…We now have this chance to be integrated into these huge transport routes, with Georgia to become a crucial part and a junction for transport and infrastructure.”
It is estimated that approximately 34 million containers of cargo are transported from China to Europe every year. Reducing days and weeks off transit schedules is attractive to economic ministers and international investors. The Anaklia Deep Sea Port will enable Georgia to be a part of the container shipment operations in the region, so that even if a small percentage of that business comes through Georgia, it will have a great economic effect on the country.
