Pursuant to the Concession Agreement, SLPA and GOSL will grant (i) to HIPG, the sole and exclusive right to develop, operate and manage the Hambantota Port and (ii) to HIPS, the sole and exclusive right to develop, operate and manage the Common User Facilities, for the operation of the Hambantota Port.

The Port of Hambantota is located on the Southern coast of Sri Lanka occupying a prime location within 10 nautical miles to the main shipping route from Asia to Europe and is also in a strategic position along the “Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road”. Hambantota Port is a comprehensive deep-water port, the Hambantota Port project is a project to develop a major industrial and service port with an attached industrial zone in the Port of Hambantota and it is currently expected that the project will comprise of three phases. With 10 berths in Phase 1 and 2, and quay length of up to 3,487 meters; the berths are specialized to handle containers, bulk cargos, general cargos, RO-RO cargos and liquid bulk. Water depth alongside the quay and navigation channel is -17 meters, which makes Hambantota Port a deep-water port capable of handling super-mega vessels. Hambantota Port has great potential for future expansion, with its hinterland covering the South Asian region, and as a maritime hub in the region.

CMPort has, in recent years, been actively exploring and, as and when deemed appropriate, capturing available opportunities overseas as the means to effectively add new growth drivers to its existing and sustainably growing ports business. Having already established a story of success in Port of Colombo through the development of the Colombo International Container Terminals Ltd., the addition of the Hambantota Port will provide the Company a platform to materialise synergies between the two major ports in Sri Lanka, unlocking the county’s potential to be a global maritime center.

About Hambantota

The Port of Hambantota is located at 6o07 North and 81o06 East at the Southern coast of Sri Lanka. The Hambantota Port project is a project to develop a major industrial and service port with an attached industrial zone in the Port of Hambantota and it is currently expected that the project will comprise of three phases. Phase 1 of the Hambantota Port was completed in December 2011 and has commenced operation since June 2012. Construction works for Phase 2 was completed in April 2015.

Future Prospects for Hambantota

China Merchants Group Limited, the Company’s parent company, has rich experience and resources in implementing the “Port + Park + City” Model (e.g. Shekou, Zhangzhou). The significant landmass of the project (approximately 11.5km2 port area) gives leeway for the Company to implement and capitalize on the said model to add substantial value to the port operations and development. Furthermore, the Company has also entered into a cooperation framework agreement with China Harbour to explore possible future cooperation and joint development and operation in relation to the Hambantota Port and the industrial park adjacent to the Hambantota Port. As at the terms and conditions for such cooperation is yet to be finalise, the Company will further disclose when such cooperation materialises.
