Part of a multibillion-dollar seaport was put to use on Monday in Hai Phong – the coastal city considered as the key port gateway to the world in northern Vietnam.

During its first stage of operations, the VND6 trillion (US$264 million) Nam Dinh Vu Port is set to receive container ships weighing around 40,000 metric tons.

The port, with the water depth of 7.2 meters, has a berth around 1.5 kilometers long, cranes with synchronized equipment, and modern pieces of software controlling their movement.

The Nam Dinh Vu Port is regarded as the largest in Dinh Vu, part of the Hai Phong Economic Zone.

The port, jointly invested by domestic companies Gemadept Corporation and Sao Do Group, is expected to cover 65 hectares after construction of the remaining stage finishes by 2020.
