The overall development program for BICT raises the facility's annual container handling capacity to 200,000 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs).
In a statement, the company said the expansion program for Batumi International Container Terminal (BICT) involves 'both the waterside and landside areas of the multipurpose terminal,' which are 'intended to optimize the processing of existing cargo flows and install additional capacity to accommodate new business.'
(ICTSI) formally inaugurated the expansion of its Batumi International Container Terminal (BICT) in Georgia.
"This new investment consolidates and expands BICT's competitive position," said ICTSI Senior Vice President and Europe, Middle East and Africa Head Hans-Ole Madsen.
He added that, "a comprehensive dredging program, undertaken in cooperation with Batumi Sea Port, provides an 11.5-meter draught in the port's fairway and alongside BICT's quay line allowing easy access for feedermax vessels at the port and making it Georgia's deepest draught port."
