Black Sea Port of Filyos culmination of 150-year-old dream 
14.12.2016

Envisioned nearly 150 years ago by Sultan Abdulhamid II, the groundbreaking ceremony for the Filyos Port, a long-awaited project that is set to become Turkey’s third largest port upon completion, took place in the province of Zonguldak with the participation of Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım.

 

Considered to be a dream come true, the Filyos Port will be completed at a total cost of USD 154 million. Several other infrastructure projects are slated to follow the port’s completion, and together they will play a vital role in making the region an industrial zone.

 

According to Prime Minister Yıldırım, the project is not only about Zonguldak itself, but Turkey as a whole as the port will be the gateway to the Anatolian lands from the eastern Black Sea. It is expected that Filyos will be a shining star in terms of maritime transportation.

 

As per plans, at least 10 large facilities will be erected in the industrial zone, while some 12,000 people will be offered job opportunities. The 3,000-meter-long port of Filyos will have a loading and unloading capacity of 25 million tons per annum, and will be backed by a road and rail network. Around 4,000 people will work on the construction of the Filyos project, which is scheduled for completion in 2017.
