Georgia Ports Authority announces plans for new container port on Hutchinson Island

The Georgia Ports Authority has announced plans to establish a new container port on Hutchinson Island across the Savannah River from the GPA’s 1,200-acre Ocean Terminal.

The 200-acre expansion will bring the Port of Savannah’s annual capacity to 11 million twenty-foot equivalent container units (TEUs), up from the current 5.5 million TEUs a year.

“It’s a big deal. Hutchinson Island can offer between 2.5 to 3 million TEUs of capacity and we’re really excited about it. We already own the land and it can be rail served, which is exciting,” GPA Executive Director Griff Lynch said Thursday during the annual State of the Ports address at the Savannah Convention Center.

“It’s going to be a great project.”

It will be 2026 or 2027 before the new port expansion is operational and Lynch said the expansion would be about a $1.8 billion investment for the GPA.
