Splash247 reported that the congested nature of Bangladeshi ports is set for some alleviation with the construction of a giant new port. European engineering consultants Royal HaskoningDHV, in partnership with the Bangladesh University of Engineering Technology, has been selected as master plan consultant for the Payra Deep Sea Port Development Project in the south Asian nation. Payra Port will be the country’s third and largest sea port in Bangladesh and is being designed to add much needed port capacity as well as allow larger vessels to call at the facility, negating the need for transhipment to other ports such as Singapore and Colombo.

Chairman of Payra Sea Port Commodore M Jahangir Alam commented “This port will be as essential link in the Bangladesh-China-India-Myanmar Economic Corridor and as such will have a great impact on the economic development of Bangladesh.”

Eric Smit, business development director maritime at Royal HaskoningDHV, said “It’s rare to see greenfield port developments of this scale, and the new port will help the country achieve its growth ambitions and create greater economic growth, more jobs and new opportunities.”
