MRMR Port

Background

The construction of Hambantota Port is one of the major development projects that had been undertaken by Sri Lanka ports Authority. This port development work is scheduled to implement in phases. Phase I developments has already been completed while phase II development is in progress.

This port is located very close proximity to the major international east-west shipping route and well positioned at a strategic location on maritime gateway to India. Large number of ships passes Sri Lanka daily along this shipping route and creates good business opportunities for providing services like supply of fuel, water, crew change in addition to the usual port operations.

On domestic trade perspectives, it is better positioned with direct roadway connection to the southern, central and eastern areas of the island and serves Southern half of the island through linking with the Central and Eastern province by roads.

The harbor area is basically protected by 312m and 988m long two breakwaters. An access channel of 210 m width and 17m depth is provided with a turning circle of 600m diameter and 17m deep to facilitate vessels up to 100,000 DWT.
