The Vietnam National Shipping Lines (Vinalines) said it will officially launch the construction of the Van Phong international transhipment port in the south central province of Khanh Hoa on October 31.

USD3.6 billion to build Van Phong transhipment port.

The 12,500m transhipment port-a key national project undertaken by the Ministry of Transport at an estimated cost of more than USD 3.6 billion-is capable of receiving over 200 million tonnes of goods per year and container ships of up to 17,000-TEU in capacity.

The construction project is divided into four stages with the initial stage scheduled to be completed by 2013. The first stage will be implemented from 2010-2015, on an area of 118-125 ha with a total port length of 1,680-2,260 meters.

In the second stage, eight container ship wharves will be built on an area of 405 ha with a total port length of 4,450-5,710 meters able to receive 12,000 TEU ships.

For the last stage, 25 wharves receiving 17,000 TEU containers ships will be built on an area of 750 ha with a port length from 11,880-12,590 meters.
