In the first phase of the port of Shahid Beheshti, 15 million cubic meters of dredging, 203 hectares of new land, and 1,650 breakwaters have been constructed, and its basin depth is 16.5 square meters.
Currently, 100,000-ton ships are capable of mooring, and this can play a significant role in the import and export of basic goods.
The next four phases of Shahid Beheshti Port will be completed and put into operation, which will eventually reach 82 million tonnes.
