Driving forces fro long – term port expansion DEEP WATER AVANT PORT - Rapid growth of cargo flows (2001 - 17 mln. t., 2007 – 27,4 mln. t) requires port facilities with larger capacity and space; - Larger tonnage vessels (until 2002 – 40 000 DWT, 2007 - 100 000 DWT, later - 150 000 DWT) requires the water depth –17 m. - Intensified navigation of larger vessels requires more space within the port waters, thus they should be diverted to the avant-port for safer and smoother navigation
