Port of Alat (Baku), description.
The port of Alat (Baku, Azerbaijan) is a new complex of the Baku International Sea Trade Port, the construction of which began in 2010. The construction of a new complex in the port of Alat was accepted due to the fact that the old port was located in the center of Baku city, which created unnecessary pressure on the infrastructure and ecology of the city of Baku. Plus, due to the congestion of roads in the capital of Azerbaijan, transportation of goods from the port took a lot of time.
The new port of Alat is located 70 km from the city of Baku, at the intersection of the TRACECA lines and the North-South corridor, and is also part of the transport hub connecting the West (Turkey and the EU), the South (Iran and India) and the North (Russia) .
The following international railway lines pass through the port of Alat:
- Northwest line – through Baku to Russia (Yalama / Samur crossing point)
- Western line – through Georgia (including the ports of Poti and Batumi) to the shores of the Black Sea and Turkey;
- Southern line – to areas in the south and to the border with Iran through the Astara border crossing
There are 12 berths in the port of Alat (Baku), of which seven serve dry cargo ships, two berths serve ferries, two more berths serve Ro-Ro and Ro-Pax vessels, one berth is used to serve the port’s towing and auxiliary vessels.
