36% Growth in the Performance of Guilan Ports in 1399

36% Growth in the Performance of Guilan Ports in 1399
The Director General of Ports and Maritime Authority of Guilan Province said: “with the growth of performance in the two ports of Anzali and Astara, we witnessed a 36% growth in loading and unloading operations last year.”

According to the Public Relations of the Ports and Maritime Authority of Guilan Province, on the morning of Thursday, April 8, Dr. Hamidreza Abaie stated on the sidelines of the visit of the Managing Director of the Ports and Maritime Organization and the Chairman of the Civil Commission to Anzali Port Complex: “Anzali Port is about 300 years old and is one of the ports that is under the authority of the Ports and Maritime Organization and  at the same time, is governed by the laws of the Industrial Free Trade Zone.”

Pointing out that Anzali Port has 16 berths, he added: "One of the main issues in Anzali Port was to use the capacity of this port to deliver steel in the country, which with the good growth in previous years, the volume of steel handling operations in this port reached 7 million tons in 1391. Due to self-sufficiency of the country in the field of steel production and the cessation of steel imports, this has caused the port to suffer due to its one-dimensionality.”

Abaie reminded: “Of course, with the measures and plans of the Ports and Maritime Organization, this port was taken out of a one-dimensional state and moved towards loading and unloading dry and liquid bulk cargos as well as containers. In this regard, silos and reservoirs are built and managed by the private sector.”

He emphasized that we witnessed a 36% growth in Guilan ports: “last year we saw an improvement in the performance of Anzali and Astara ports.”

The Director General of Ports and Maritime Authority of Guilan Province, emphasizing that containers are one of the issues that we are interested in, said: "The berths were built for container operations according to their condition and one of the things we did to support exports was to prepare 64 refrigerated containers.”

He pointed out that currently the maximum capacity and volume of ships is 6,500 tons and we seek to increase this capacity by using the potentials of the private sector and building ships with a capacity of more than 8,000 and 12,000 tons, he stressed. : “All ships of the Caspian Sea can be moored at Anzali berths.”

Abaie stated: “We are looking to develop the tourism industry in Anzali Port. In this regard, we have allocated four hectares of land and six hectares of marine land in Bandar Anzali (with free zone laws) to the development of Marino so that we can use the capacity of the private sector to be fully productive and do not suffer losses due to having one-dimensional operations.”
