Busan New Port

Samsung C&T, Engineering & Construction Americas

Project Description


The 4th largest container terminal in the world is located in the Southeast of the South Korean peninsula at Pusan. As the old port is completely surrounded by the Pusan metropolitan area, expansion of the old port is restricted. To solve chronic cargo congestion, the Korean government decided to construct a new port situated 20 km west of Pusan with a final total handling capacity of 4.6 million TEU. Busan New Port was constructed in a naturally sheltered area behind Gadukdo Island. Samsung contracted for the development of four portions of the new port development. Specific projects are described below.
