Establishment Of Service Providing Centre

By Admin

The vast space available in the port area and the proximity to the shipping lane makes Hambantota MRMR and ideal location for the establishment of a repair yard facility.

Having zero deviation time, such a facility could provide urgent needs for shipping lines in a competitive business environment and could be converted into a fully fledged logistic centre. A dockyard in this port will also enhance the current limited facilities at Colombo where lack of space inhibits them from growth of this fruitful business activity.

The proposed dockyard will be capable of accommodating the largest vessels such as the tanker fleet which frequent this route from the oil rich Arabian peninsula to the emerging economies in the far east and south east Asian regions.
