New Coal and Cement Terminal Qasim Port, Pakistan
In the Port of Qasim (Pakistan), a modern bulk handling terminal for coal, clinker and cement was planned and built. The terminal consisted of a 460 m long pier with two berths and four mooring dolphins. The sea side connection takes place from the Indian Ocean through the Phitti and Kadiro creek, where dredging works were undertaken for the berthing area to cater for large ships. A 2,400 m long access bridge through the mangrove forest connects the pier to the land-side terminal, where coal and clinker docks are situated. For the approximately 8,000 m of conveyor belts, 5 transfer towers and 5 large silos, extensive foundation works were necessary.
