Tbilisi - APM Terminals Poti and Poti New Terminals Consortium have submitted a conceptual design for a first stage construction for the expansion of Georgia’s Poti Sea Port, in the Eastern Black Sea.

The project plan entails a 14.5-meter water depth at the 700-meter quay wall and 25 hectares of dedicated land for the bulk operation for yard and covered storage facilities for various cargo types, including grain, ore, and minerals.

“The new bulk port will handle cargo lots up to 60.000 tons / vessel creating new cost-effective opportunities for cargo owners in Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia and other central Asian countries,” says Klaus Laursen Managing Director APM Terminals Poti.

The new facilities in Poti aim at supporting the growth of international trade through the Georgian transit corridor greatly contributing to the country economy.
