The project involves the construction of a deep-sea port on 720ha of land with an annual handling capacity of 0.80 million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU) and accommodates 70,000 deadweight tonnage (DWT) vessels.
It includes the construction of a terminal operation building, a main entrance gate, a warehouse, a workshop building, a pilot and tugboat building, administration facilities, wastewater treatment facilities, access roads, a reinforced concrete-type port-access bridge of 4,300m with four lanes (two in each direction), a navigating channel of 14m depth, a 180m-wide 600m-diameter turning basin, a rock filled breakwater of 1,700m length and related infrastructure.
ATT Consultants Company Ltd and PCI (Japan) have been appointed as consultants to carry out engineering services for the project.
The project has been delayed since 2010 due to opposition by residents in the region.
On September 6, 2014, Thailand's military gave in-Principle approval for the project.
Environmental and Health Impact Assessment (EHIA) study on the project is underway.
As of August 2016, the project is facing opposition from the environmental activists as it would damage the natural environment and people's way of living.
In March 2017, MoT postpones a contentious public hearing on the project due to public opposition.
