Guangdong: A newly constructed VLCC-size oil terminal in Zhanjiang port, one of the largest in South China, was put into operation yesterday, the same day as the largest coal terminal in the region able to receive 150,000dwt vessels was also inaugurated at the port.
Zhanjiang port now boasts two VLCC-size oil terminals, one 250,000dwt iron ore terminal and a 150,000dwt coal terminal, with annual capacity of some 16.8m tons. The port is seeking to establish itself as the largest iron ore and oil distribution hub on the South China coast, said Zheng Riqiang, deputy mayor of Zhanjiang and chairman of Zhanjiang port group.  [27/12/10]
