Thailand-based construction company Italian-Thai Development PCL has started a wharf construction for Dawei deep seaport project in Myanmar, according to Myanmar official.
“The wharf is currently under construction. It will be ready in February next year,” President of Dawei Special Economic Zone Tin Maung Swe said.
The wharf is necessary to speed up the transportation of the machinery and construction materials for the Dawei deep seaport construction project which is expected to be ready in the same year.
“We need a reliable port to carry the construction materials. There is actually a temporary dock, but it’s not strong enough to dock lager ships,” Tin Maung Swe added. “The new wharf is expected to be able to handle large ships.”
The wharf, which is located at the mouth of Pandatinn River, will be able to load and unload a maximum of 0.1 million tonnes of goods.
