Klaipeda seaport channel to be deepened to 17 m. by 2020.
Currently the Klaipeda seaport channel is 15 metres deep. That is, two metres less than Riga seaport and one metre less than Ventspils seaport. The current depth of Klaipeda seaport restricts the size and loading of big carrier ships entering the port. With a depth of 17 metres, by 2020 Klaipeda seaport could service virtually any carrier ship operating in the Baltic Sea.
In the period between 2017 and 2020, Klaipeda seaport is planning to procure construction works (most likely a series of public procurement procedures) worth some EUR 330 million.
Completion expected by 2020
Executed by: Klaipeda seaport
Value est.: EUR 330 million
