He says certain construction works have already been carried out: “Thereafter, construction works, which include new concrete works and new roads, will continue. All these works will be carried out in 4 stages. At the end, there will be constructed residential, administrative buildings and hotels for workers”.

The company official noted that railway from Canakkale city to the port will be built at the final stage: “this railway will play an important role in cargo transportation. Currently, there is a railway up to Izmir’s Aliaga province”.

Cirakoglu said that construction process of the port will consist of two phases: “the first phase includes completion of constriction works in June, 2015 and then the second phase will start in the next month and complete after 16 months (2016)”.

The twenty-foot equivalent unit (often TEU or teu) is an inexact unit of cargo capacity often used to describe the capacity of container ships and container terminals. There is a lack of standardization in regards to height, ranging between 4 feet 3 inches (1.30 m) and 9 feet 6 inches (2.90 m), with the most common height being 8 feet 6 inches (2.59 m). Also, it is common to designate 45-foot (13.7 m) containers as 2 TEU, rather than 2.25 TEU.
