Built by China Communications Construction Company (CCCC)’s Third Harbor Engineering Co Ltd, the main body for a multifunctional wharf in Cuba’s San Diego was recently completed, being the first infrastructure project by a Chinese enterprise in the country.
Supported by the Chinese government with a total contract amount of $120 million, the project will include a 20,000-to-40,000-ton multifunctional berth with the length of 232 meters and throughput of 565,000 tons a year.
The berth will also be designed with loading and unloading facilities as well as installations providing electricity, telecommunication, drainage, fire control and auto control system.
Under harsh conditions including lack of materials, financial difficulties and manpower shortage, the project, as the first of its kind in Cuba, is able to maintain good quality in every phrase of its construction.
When completed, the project will bring more job opportunities for people in San Diego and add momentum to the development of local industries.
