As the new generation of container ships comes on the drawing boards, Karachi Port takes the initiative of bracing itself to handle and cater for fifth and sixth generation ships. This involves the development of a deep water container port at Keamari Groyne, which is the natural choice for such a port.  Feasibility study was carried out by M/s Techno Consult International, M/s Pasford Haskoning and M/s HR Wallingford and completed in 2005.  Ten berths at 18m depth, with 5 km of quay wall have been planned. The project shall be carried out in phases and on public-private partnership (PPP). Total cost of the project is US$ 1.6 billion. In Phase I, four berths with 1500 m quay wall is planned to be constructed. Project is scheduled for completion in 2014.

NAME PDWCP PHASE-1 - THE CONCESSION AGREEMENT
TOTAL COST OF THE PROJECT BOT Project
DATE OF COMPLETION 2014

The Phase 1 of PDWCP comprises 4 berths and will have 1500m quay length. A design vessel, (similar to Emma Maersk), of 400 m LOA, 55.0m Beam and l5m Draft with 11,000 TEUs on board, has been used for planning the PDWCP. The channel and berthing face will be dredged to – 16m initially, but the Quay wall is designed for – 18m depth. The container terminal will have both road and rail connections to the hinterland including the proposed Cargo Village in the Western Backwaters of Karachi Port.

The viability of PDWCP with respect to the geographical location of the port was proved when in response to the KPT’s request for proposals for setting up of the PDWCP, four world renowned firms responded. After an exhaustive exercise of evaluation of the most competitive bid, M/s Hutchison Port Holdings Limited (HPH) of Hong Kong has been awarded the Concession. HPH is the world’s largest container terminal operator. HPH operates 257 berths in 45 ports in 23 countries alongwith a number of transportation related service companies.

The lease of the terminal will be for an initial period of 25 years extendable for another 25 years, on mutually agreed terms and conditions. M/s. Hutchison Port Holdings Limited (HPH) Hong Kong will be required to develop the site into a full-fledged state of the art Container Terminal capable of receiving and handling Super Post Panamax Container Ships. Terminal Capacity will be 3.1 Million TEUs. The Concession Agreement was signed in November, 2007. Expected initial investment by M/s. HPH is US $457 Million.
