Director General of Ports and Maritime Authority of Guilan Province, pointing out that Chamkhaleh Port has had 40% physical progress, said: "The duration of this project is 36 months and according to the terms of the contract, we have no delay."

According to the public relations of the Ports and Maritime Authority of Guilan Province, Hamid Reza Abaie, the Director General, stating that the rolof ports in the transit of goods is very important for us, emphasized: “Presence in the transit corridor causes the space and facilities of the ports of Guilan province to be used to provide better and faster services so that we can make the best use of them.”

Stating that the ports of Anzali and Astara in Guilan province should play a great role in the transit of goods and tourism, Abaie clarified: “these two issues are among our high goals, of course, we have to use the capacities that we have created, such as accepting ships, bringing more cargo to Anzali, and creating capacities that can accommodate more ships in this port.”

He also said about Caspian port: “Caspian Port is one of the ports that has been established in Anzali Free Zone and is currently providing services.”

Director General of Ports and Maritime Authority of Guilan Province continued: Caspian port services are provided by the free zone and we provide maritime services to them.

56% Growth in Freight Traffic in Caspian, Anzali and Astara Ports

Abaie pointed to the movement of goods in the ports of Guilan province in the first six months of this year and added: the movement of goods in the ports of Caspian, Anzali and Astara in the first six months of this year has increased by about 56 percent compared to the same period last year. This performance shows that the ports of Guilan are reaching their true position in terms of sea transportation, but we still have a long way to go.

The Director General of Ports and Maritime Authority of Guilan pointed to the smartening of ports and said: “considering the increase of wharves from 10 posts to 16 posts, we need to know how the equipment is located in the wharf. This requires smartening of port equipment. For this purpose, a contract has been signed with the University of Guilan, which is currently in the study phase.”

He pointed to the very important role of Guilan ports in Eurasia and added: "The most transportation of goods and trade is done by sea and Guilan province plays a very important role in maritime transport. For this reason, we will play a significant role in Eurasia. For a strong presence in Eurasia, programs such as offering discounts, launching "Ro-Ro" lines, launching container lines and using the capacity of Eurasian countries are on the agenda.”

According to the Terms of the Contract, We Have No Delay in the Chamkhaleh Port Project

Abaie also said about the Chamkhaleh port project: “Chamkhaleh port is a port for recreational and tourism use and needs the construction of ancillary tourism industries to be able to provide services of passenger and cruise ships to tourists. We hope that the responsible agencies, such as the Ministry of Industry, Mines and Trade and the Environment Organization, will cooperate so that the companies working on this project can provide the appropriate ships and boats for the Chamkhaleh project.”

Noting that the port of Chamkhaleh has 40% physical progress, he said: "The duration of this project is 36 months and according to the contract, we have no delays. The main problem in the implementation of this project is the provision of stone materials, which if this issue is resolved, the infrastructure of Chamkhaleh tourist port will be ready and investors can participate in this project."

In the end, Abai said: “the credit allocated to Chamkhaleh recreational and tourism port is 70 billion Tomans, which can be increased up to 100 billion.”
