Dafeng port to build roro terminal
Jiangsu Dafeng port started the construction of a new roro terminal this weekend to develop the port as the largest car transportation hub in East China. The project includes one 70,000 tons-class terminal, which will take a year to build. Dafeng will then be able to handle 400,000 cars. The roro terminal will have direct links between Dafeng and Korea, said Tao Ying, general manager of Dafeng Haigang Port. The port will also develop inland routes for roro vessels in the future. Since the port was established in October 2005, Dafeng has built 16 berths. The port handled 60,000 teu container throughput in the first three quarters of this year, an increase of 82.2% year-on-year. [20/10/14]

China gets controlling stake at Hambantota port
News that Sri Lanka had granted Chinese state-owned companies operating rights to four berths at the Hambantota Port once they are completed next year has caught the shipping industry unawares. There had been no tenders or prior announcements. But Sri Lanka Ports Authority Chairman Priyath B Wickrama says the Government had agreed to such an arrangement with the Hambantota Port’s Chinese lenders as far back as 2010. “We had an understanding with them when we took the loan,” he said in an interview with the Sunday Times. The loan agreement was signed with the Treasury. He also revealed that, in exchange for these operating rights, the Chinese have consented to ease loan conditions. “That loan was a huge loan,” he said. “The Chinese Government (has) agreed to relax the loan conditions as well. So the terms of our Phase I loan and Phase II loan are being rearranged. Those negotiations are now ongoing with the Treasury.”
