The Magampura Mahinda Rajapaksa Port

The Hambantota Sea Port has been open since November 2010 and is 10 km drive from the new Mattala Rajapakse International Airport. The construction of these two international hubs is to create a new revenue stream for the airport and the port through air-sea cargo transshipment.  

This natural harbour port has a number of facilities including 600 meter general purpose berths, a 310 meter bunkering berth and a 120 meter small craft berth; the port also boasts a bunkering facility and a tank farm which has eight tanks for marine fuel, three tanks containing aviation fuel and three tanks for Liquid petroleum Gas.

When the third phase of the Hambantota Port is complete, it will provide direct and indirect employment to up to 50,000 people as well as cover the span of 4,000 acres of land and accommodate 33 vessels at any given time, making the largest port constructed in South Asia.
