The South Korean port of Mokpo is looking for an operator for a new vehicle terminal which was completed in July.
Mokpo Regional Oceans & Fisheries Administration Office announced on 10 August its plan to select a terminal operator for Mokpo New Port’s new car carrier terminal.
The car carrier terminal has been constructed as a result of the second stage of the port development project.
In the land area of 96,000 m², the terminal has a 30,000-tonne ship berth with a quay length of 240 m. The chosen operator will sign on a five-year contract worth an estimated KRW427 million (USD290,954) of annual rental. The annual rental can change depending on the situation such as the size of a building for operation.
The office said, “Although we initially accepted applications from candidates in June, an appropriate one has not been shown.”
Given this, the office plans to choose the one once again. All applications must be submitted by 9 September and the result will be announced on 11 September.
