The No.7 container berth of Meishan Port of Ningbo-Zhoushan Port has recently been checked and accepted upon completion, becoming another container berth with the largest maximum tonnage in China.
The project is 459 meters long and 59 meters wide, with a designed capacity of 200,000 tons. The berth is connected with the land through an approach span, which is 22 meters wide and 436 meters long.
The No.6 to NO.10 container berths of the Meishan Port are located on the south of the Chuanshan Peninsula, to the north of Xiangshan Bay and southeast of the Meishan Island, just next to the No.1 to No.5 container berths.
According to a person in charge from Ningbo Municipal Administration of Port and Shipping, the No.6 to No.10 berths are the top-level container berths in China. With a total investment of about 7.8 billion yuan, they will be built as two 200,000-ton berths and three 150,000-ton ones, with the overall berth length of 2,150 meters and a designed annual passage capacity of 4.3 million TEUs.
When all the berths are completed, the annual container throughput of the port will exceed 10 million TEUs. Statistics from the Administration of Port and Shipping show that there are now 19 container berths with the capacity of 100,000 tons at the Ningbo-Zhoushan Port area
