The site for the proposed Derince International Container Terminal is located in Izmit Bay, 80km east of Istanbul, Turkey. The development involved the design of a new container terminal on a ‘greenfield’ site which was capable of handling 1 million TEU per annum.

The project included:

Cullen Grummitt & Roe was involved in our client’s feasibility study and in the preparation of tender documents presented to the local port authority. CGR’s services included master planning of the site, calculation of development costs and staging for input into the financial model, preliminary design and preparation of drawings for inclusion into our client’s tender.

Our client’s tender was successful.

Cullen Grummitt & Roe was subsequently involved in further reviews of the master plan and has completed the concept design for pricing by the contractor. Due to the major earthquake in this region combined with trade and political issues, the project has not yet proceeded.
