The Sri Lanka Ports Authority is inviting proposals from international firms or consortia to design, build, finance, manage and operate business ventures at the Port of Hambantota.

The construction works of the Phase 1 development of Hambantota Port Project is now nearing completion and this project has been designed to accommodate vessels of nearly 100,000 DWT with the depth of 16m. The Port will be created by the construction of new breakwaters and will be served by a channel with a depth of 17m and a width of 210m. The basin in the initial phase will be nearly 60 ha and will serve a quay length of 600m for general cargo activities and another quay of 610m for gas and oil. The basin will be dredged to -17m with provisions to deepen it to -21m should new generation of deep drafted vessels come into operation.
