Authorities plan to upgrade Sule jetty

Authorities are planning to upgrade Sule jetty to accomodate 30,000 DWT bulk carriers, according to Myanma Port Authority (MPA).

The jetty alone handled about 700,000 tons out of 1.7 million tons of rice exported last fiscal year.

Myanmar is expecting to export more than four million tons of rice in this year. The authorities are dredging near the jetties to facilitate exporting of cargos and installed maritime equipments.

Formerly, ships which have 167 meter in length and maximum weight of 20,000 DWT can dock at Yangon Port but now ships which have 190 meter in length and maximum weight of 30,000 DWT can dock.

“About 30 rice bulk carriers including ships which have 190 meter in length docked Sule jetty last year. We are upgrading Sule jetty to be cost effective,” said an official from the MPA.

Five jetties in Yangon: Asia World Port Terminal, Myanma Industry Port, Ahlon International jetty, Bo Aung Kyaw jetty and Myanmar International Port Thilawa are handling containers and most general cargo vessels use Myanmar Industrial Port and Asia World Port terminal because they are located close to downtown.

Moreover the authorities are expanding new jetties in Myanmar International Port Thilawa and constructing new jetties in Plot No. 25 and 26 owned by the MPA using loan from Official Development Assistance of Japan. They will build new jetties in Plot No. 22, 23 and 24 after finishing them.
