Recently, the relevant supervisor in charge of the construction of Sanya port for Volvo Ocean Race 2011/2012, told the reporter that this port is devised to combine the use of sea with the land area. Specifically, they plan to construct by pile driving in the sea without trying land reclamation, reports
As the only stopover port in Asia for the Volvo Ocean Race 2011-12, this new port is estimated to be finished in August next year.
In addition, the supervisor also revealed that by pile driving, it can minimize damages to coral reef. Relevant government departments in Sanya have approved their plans too.
