广州港两大重点项目建设再提速

The Port of Guangzhou is accelerating the construction work on its two main infrastructure projects. 

The building of 28 grain silos for the No.11 and No.12 Berths (General and Barge Berths) Project of the Xinsha Terminal started on December 20. Each silo is 23 meters wide and 51.5 meters high, and is made of reinforced concrete. Once completed, the grain storage capacity of the Xinsha Port area will increase to 600,000 tons. 

The V and VI sections of Guangzhou Port’s deep-water channel also began construction earlier on December 17, as the final part of a project to expand the current waterway. 

The expansion is designed for the two-way navigation of 150,000 ton-class container ships (partially loaded). The project broke ground on September 2016 and was carried out in two phases, with completion scheduled for the end of 2020. 

The southern extension, with a length of 50.2 kilometers, was put into use in 2017 and has greatly eased the traffic pressure of large container ships in the Nansha Port area. The V and VI sections, as part of the phase-two project, are being built at the northernmost end of the channel with a total length of 8.2 kilometers.  

The sea-going deep waterway is regarded as the lifeline not only for the Port of Guangzhou, but also for ports in the Greater Bay Area. Its expansion will help reduce the lay time of vessels at the port and thus improve on-time arrivals and departures of container liners.

广州港正加快推进两大基础设施工程的建设。 

12月20日,新沙港区11号12号通用泊位及驳船泊位工程配套筒仓正式开工建设。本工程拟建28个粮食筒仓,每仓直径(内径)23.0m,建筑高度51.5m,采用钢筋混凝土筒体结构,建成后新沙港区的粮食仓储能力将提升28万吨,达到60万吨。 

12月17日上午,广州港深水航道拓宽工程V、VI标段开工动员会在广州市港务局举行,拓宽工程剩余8.2公里建设正式拉开序幕。 

广州港深水航道拓宽工程按满足10万吨级集装箱船与15万吨级集装箱船(减载)双向通航的标准设计建设。拓宽工程于2016年9月开工建设,分两期实施。一期工程实施南部50.2公里航段,于2017年9月投入使用,有效缓解了进出南沙港区的大型集装箱船舶通航压力;二期工程正在积极推进建设,本次开工的V、VI标段位于深水航道最北段,预计2020年底可完成工程建设任务,深水航道全线投入使用。 

广州港出海航道不仅是广州港、东莞港、深圳西部港区的生命线,是广州港建设世界一流港口的强力支撑,也是粤港澳大湾区基础设施互联互通的重要组成。港航各界迫切希望广州港深水航道拓宽工程早日建成,进一步降低进出广州港船舶的在港停泊时间、提高集装箱班轮准点率、保障港口生产安全、高效。
