The importance of the development of a new multi-use pier 14 as a result of the filling of the fourth basin, The importance of the development of a new multi-use
pier 14 as a result of the filling of the fourth basin, If productivity in the handling of public goods at the port is not improved, and planning to accommodate the expected increase in container traffic, the port will face major problems as a result of overcrowding and its inability to accommodate this growing movement.
This is what the Administration is seeking to avoid through the implementation of the current phase of the port development project, which deals with the construction of a multi purpose
terminal combining the movements of containers and general goods Through the new state-of-the-art Pier 14 and its storage back patios, which are created as a result of the fourth dock
filling. The readiness to work on this new pier will be open 24 hours instead of "S hours now- This means that the productivity of the pier will rise significantly to meet the standards of
Construction of a new multi-use plant (for containers and general goods) with new stornge areas of about 140,000 m2 Increase the annual capacity of containers by about 200,000
standard containers, Increase the annual capacity of general goods by about 500,000
toils, The ability to receive giant ships that require depths between 15 and 16 ml. Creating additional storage space to allow for increased productivity in unloading ships
Sustainability was achieved through some design ideas and some architectural elements
a core for making natural ventilation. Using sun louvers to reduce direct sunlight and glare inside the building and allow only proper lighting and reduce overheating inside the building. Using trees in the south direction to purify the air and provide shading. Making corridors between buildings to work as air traps and create an air stream. Providing appropriate shading for the corridors to reduce the air temperature.
