Penang Port is also planning to re-develop the old Prai wharf into a fully dedicated modern bulk terminal to handle limestones, iron ore and cement clinkers. The amount of investment is expected to be RM 224 million. The new terminal will have a depth 14 metres and will be able to handle Panamax Vessels. It will have a state-of-art conveyor belt, which will be linked directly to the customer's premises. The terminal will also be connected directly to KTMB's national grid and will initially be expected to handle two (2) million tonnes of bulk limestones, two (2) million tonnes of iron ore and 1 million tonne of other bulk cargoes.
