Georgia has resumed building of the Anaklia deep-water port, which will eventually become one of the largest and deepest seaports in the world, shortening the distance between China and Europe.

At the moment, Georgia has two ports – in Batumi and Poti. The main volume of cargo operations is carried out through the port of Poti, where the depth of berths allows vessels with a draft of up to 10 metres to be accepted. Batumi port has a depth of 12-13 metres.

Anaklia port will have the largest depth among Georgian ports, up to 21 metres, while the current ports have much smaller depths: 14 metres in Batumi and 8.5 metres in Poti.

The new port will cover an area of 400 hectares and will be able to accommodate Panamax and Post-Panamax class vessels. The port will be equipped with 32 berths with a total length of 12.3 kilometres, with a capacity of up to 100 million tonnes of cargo per year.

The Port of Anaklia is designed to accommodate large vessels with a draft depth of more than 18 metres, which will make it a key element of the region’s transit infrastructure.
