Phase 1 completion of Negin Island’s project

Director General of Ports and Maritime Directorate of Bushehr Province Siavash Arjmandzadeh announced the completion of Phase 1 of the construction project of Negin Island’s container terminal in August.

"With a length of 300 meters and a width of 30 meters, the container terminal can offer services to 20,000-ton container ships," he said.

"The project was carried out in cooperation with the private sector with an investment of 900 billion rials ($6.38 million)."

The dredging of Negin Island's container berth started in April. Ports and Maritime Organization of Bushehr Province said back then that once the project is complete, the docking of 50,000-ton vessels will be made possible at the port.

On an official visit to the southern province of Bushehr, President Hassan Rouhani in January 2015 launched the construction of Negin Island seaport, as part of the Bushehr Port Development Project.

"The container loading and unloading capacity for Bushehr Port will increase to 600,000 TEUs upon Negin Island's port project, which is twice its current capacity, making it the country’s second biggest container port after Shahid Rajaee Port in Hormozgan Province," Mohammad Rastad, the head of Iran’s Ports and Maritime Organization, said.
