A bulk terminal at Thilawa Special Economic Zone in southern Yangon was opened on 7th September offering the handling of the bulk cargoes (grain, feed, Agri inputs, construction materials and other any possible bulk cargoes) in Thilawa port area.
The International Bulk Terminal (Thilawa) (IBTT) is a joint venture between Lluvia Limited (joint venture with Mitsubishi Corporation and Capital Diamond Star Group-CDSG), Kamigumi Co Ltd and JOIN Corporation, and provides services for cargo handling such as stevedoring, loading, discharging, storage, bagging, and fumigation for the handling cargoes. IBTT will aim to serve the Development of Myanmar’s food industry by providing 24/7 services.
It has a jetty 230 meters in length, 25 metres in width, with a 11-metre draft, which has a designed capacity to accommodate vessels up to 200 metres LOA and 60,000 DWT (Dead Weight Tonnage).
For storage, IBTT boasts a silo capacity of total 40,000 Metric Ton, and a 5,400 square metre warehouse (which roughly equates to about 20,000 Metric Ton for feed material. Soya Bean Meal).
IBTT, which has started operation in May this year, has already completed the discharging of three wheat flour vessels of 20,000-25,000 Metric Ton, with total volume of 70,000 Metric Ton.
The discharge of each of these vessels completed within less than 5 days of operation. IBTT is planning to handle more varieties of bulk cargoes with efficient and higher quality services, to contribute towards Myanmar’s economic growth. —GNLM
