Major Chinese port upgrades deep channel for 300,000-ton ships

A channel at China’s Ningbo-Zhoushan Port is being deepened to allow 300,000-ton ships, making it the deepest man-made channel in the country on completion.

The government is investing 500 million yuan in dredging the Xiazhimen channel to 22.5 meters below the possible lowest tide height, and the channel should be put into use in June next year.
