APM Terminals Poti has presented its plans for the creation of a deep-water port to the Government of Georgia. The plans require an investment of over 250 million USD of private capital for phase 1 and a substantial amount for phase 2 in an extensive development of the port infrastructure and superstructure. The expansion plan for Poti Sea Port consists of two stages of construction and development. The first stage includes a breakwater of 1,700m and a 400m multipurpose quay with 13.5 m depth able to handle dry bulk cargo and an incremental 150,000 TEUs. This berth will be able accommodate container vessels of up to 9,000 TEU.
Doubling of annual capacity

The second stage will include a 300m container quay equipped with 3 state-of-the-art STS cranes. It will double the annual container capacity at Poti Sea Port to over 1 million TEU.

The timeline for construction is estimated at 24-30 month. This would require close cooperation with and support from the Georgian Government, to ensure all necessary permits are granted in a timely manner. According to this planning the first stage would be completed in Q2 2022.
