Sri Lanka’s newest Port and a mere 15 nautical miles from the major East-West shipping route, the Port of Hambantota commenced operations in November 2010. Today, the Port boasts 4,000 metres of quay and several berths, including two dedicated oil berths.

The Port of Hambantota is also planned to be established as a centre for Ship Services, and the relatively low congestion and high availability of berths make this Port an ideal location for carrying out ship repairs and surveys.
