Posted on by

Dec. 8 – Cai Mep Agricultural Port, one of the region’s largest ports, reopened on December 1.

The 308-meter-long port closed to allow upgrade efforts to take place which aim to more than quadruple its capacity from 30,000 deadweight tons to 160,000 deadweight tons, and will eventually be able to accommodate 200,000 deadweight tons by the end of next year. Presently, it is capable of accommodating ships of up to 75,000 deadweight tons.

Expansion costs have risen to an estimated US$50 million, but it is expected to generate a substantial increase in shipping traffic to the region.

In addition, automatic handling equipment with a capacity of 1,200 deadweight tons per hour and other support equipment such as four electronic weighing systems and two weighs stations with a capacity of 60 and 80 deadweight tons were also installed during the time in which the port was inaccessible.
