Guangdong invests in new port project at Bohe

China’s southern Guangdong province plans to develop a new port area at Bohe, Maoming city to improve cargo handling capacity for the west area of Guangdong.

The Bohe new port area is jointly invested and will be constructed by Guangzhou Port Group and Maoming Port Group. The planned port area is 20 square kilometres.

The new port will be divided into east operation area and west operation area. The east part will feature large-sized deepwater berths, servicing coal, crude oil, ore and container cargo transportation. The west part will have general cargo berths servicing local manufacturing and harbor industries.

Bohe new port area will have 40 berths when the entire project is completed, including 32 berths above 10,000 dwt. The overall port handling capacity is estimated at 65m dwt by 2020 and 112m dwt by 2030.
