Description

This project aims to develop the port of Shëngjin as Albania's biggest industrial port. Upon completion, the New Port of Shëngjin will connect the South Adriatic and East Mediterranean with the Central, Eastern, and Northern European countries. It will also allow bypassing the congested Bosporus and Dardanelle Strait by providing alternative access to the Adriatic and Black Seas. With a capacity of 60 Million Tons per year, the port is expected to cater to the connectivity needs of not only Albania, but also its landlocked neighbors like Kosovo, Serbia, and Macedonia.
