Bringing a Port in the 21st Century: Master Planning Iskenderun Port

The Master Plan for the Port of Iskenderun, Turkey, is guiding the conversion of the port from an aged facility into a state-of-the-art, containerized cargo terminal with additional general and dry bulk capability. The port, originally designed as a general cargo and dry bulk port, was at the end of its design life and needed modernization. The planning team worked closely with the concessionaire to define and prioritize the functional and space demands of the different cargoes and work out an arrangement that would best accommodate the container berths while providing enough storage and berthing space for dry bulk and general cargoes. This brown-field case study summarizes the challenges faced to accommodate the conflicting space demands of different cargoes, operations and construction, and the spatial (layouts) and temporal (phasing) solutions devised for this brown-field conversion project.
