New PAS terminal promises more capacity
A new multipurpose terminal in Sihanoukville Autonomous Port (PAS) will increase vessel capacity and reduce shipping costs.
Construction of the US$60m terminal at the Cambodian port is due to be finished in May say government officials and port representatives, according to Khmer Times.
The publication reported that Phan Phalla, undersecretary of state at the Ministry of Economy and Finance, said the facility would be operational by June: “The new facility will make it easier for exporters to ship their cargo, especially rice. It will be able to process shipments of 40,000 to 50,000 tonnes.
“Sihanoukville’s port can’t accommodate large vessels at the moment. The new facility will fix this.
“Having this new multipurpose terminal will lower the cost of logistics in the country.”
Lou Kim Chhun, PAS’s director general, said the new terminal will be 13m deep to allow it to accommodate larger vessels.
“It will be specifically designed for the movement of retail cargo, agricultural products, coal and petrol at lower cost,” he said, reported Khmer Times.
Construction of a new 350m container terminal at PAS will start in early 2019, with completion scheduled for the end of 2022.
