New Deep Water Terminal
New Deep Water Terminal (NDWT)
After nearly four decades of successful operation, the ambitious idea to expand the port took shape in 2013. In 2013, the Government announced that Kuantan Port was embarking on a mega expansion project, the New Deep Water Terminal (NDWT). The expansion project construction work commenced in April 2015.
The Kuantan Port New Deep Water Terminal has two phases; its first phase was completed and commenced operation in 2018 for Phase 1A and 2019 for Phase 1B. The NDWT, with its 16-metre depth, is a game-changer for Kuantan Port. Capable of accommodating vessels of up to 180,000 deadweight tonnes, three times larger than Kuantan Port 1. Currently, NDWT cargo handling makes up to approximately 7 million tonnes of cargo per year. It primarily focuses on dry bulk and break-bulk cargoes in its first phase and is designed to operate with semi-automation, requiring minimal workforce compared to Kuantan Port 1.
Kuantan Port is in full swing of planning and strategizing for the NDWT phase 2 development.
