Taicang allows 200,000dwt vessels all year round

15 May 2013
Taicang terminal in Jiangsu province is now capable of accommodating 200,000dwt vessels all year round, according to Xinhua Daily. These ocean-going vessels typically have a draught of 11.8 metres.

The Yangtze Mouth dredging project, completed in 2010, has increased the water depth in Taicang to 12.5 metres. In January this year, the Ministry of Transport classified Taicang, which is part of Suzhou port, as a sea port. In addition to reducing port handling charges, local port authorities have completed emergency procedures for escorting and berthing 200,000dwt vessels. Previously, only vessels up to 50,000dwt could be accommodated in Taicang all year round.
