Beibu Gulf Port is to invest in the container terminal upgrading project at Dalanping port area of Qinzhou port via its wholly-owned subsidiary Qinzhou Shenggang Terminal Company.

The terminal, originally had two 70,000 tonnes-class multi-purpose berths, which were put into operation in 2014 and 2018 respectively. The company plans to upgrade the two berths to 100,000 tonnes-class automated container berths, with a designed handling capacity of 1.02m teu.

The total project investment is RMB2.1bn ($300m).

The company’s container business has continued fast paced growth in recent years. As of the end of 2019, container throughput of the company had achieved a progressive increase of over 25% for five consecutive years. The container berths upgrading project at Qinzhou will promote intelligent port construction and improve service capability of Beibu Gulf Port, said the company.

For the first seven months of this year, Beibu Gulf Port posted a container throughput of 2.57m teu. The port expects to achieve 5m teu container throughput as the end of 2020.
