New Port Area at Kaohsiung, Taiwan

Taiwan’s largest land reclamation undertaking in a commercial seaport has been completed after nine years of work with the $3.75 billion project adding over 422 hectares of new land to the Port of Kaohsiung. The additional area will enable the construction of several new deep-water berths for large container vessels and bulk carriers as well as the building of a new logistics center.

Taiwan-based Evergreen Marine Corporation has signed a long-term contract to lease the planned container berths while bulk carrier operators are expected to relocate their operations to the new site from Kaohsiung’s old Zhongdao Wharf area to allow that facility to be redeveloped and modernized.
