Introduction of Zhapu Port (CNZAP)


      Port of Zhapu (port of Zhapu, port code: cnzpu) is Jiaxing Port, which is located in the north of Hangzhou Bay Cross Sea Bridge. It is the only sea port and maritime foreign trade port in the north of Zhejiang Province. It is a national first-class open port and the core area of manufacturing base on the North Bank of Hangzhou Bay. It has good deepwater coastline and port conditions. At present, it has built 12 10000 ton berths and 7 1000 ton berths for containers, bulk cargo, liquid chemical and other types of terminals. With convenient collection and distribution conditions, it is about 100 kilometers away from Shanghai, Hangzhou and Ningbo. Jiaxing Port area is an important advanced manufacturing base on the North Bank of Hangzhou Bay in Zhejiang Province. The rear hinterland is economically developed, and there is a huge space for the development of warehousing and logistics industry.

      Zhapu Port, the Oriental port, was first proposed by Sun Yat Sen. it is located on the North Bank of Hangzhou Bay and has a superior geographical location. It is located on the North Bank of Hangzhou Bay, southwest of Shanghai, near Zhapu Town, Pinghu County, Zhejiang Province, about 110 nautical miles to Wusong, Shanghai, and about 60 nautical miles to Zhenhai. Since December 1986, a modern seaport has been built around the old Fort site in Zhapu. The first phase of the project, with an investment of 73 million yuan, has a seagoing wharf and an inland river port area. The port terminal with a trestle of 1150 meters long, a wharf platform of 252 meters long and a width of 28 meters has been built and put into use. It can dock one 25000 ton seagoing vessel and one thousand ton seagoing vessel respectively, with an annual handling capacity of 454000 tons. At the same time, the built inland river port can dock 12 100 ton inland river ships with an annual throughput capacity of 515000 tons.

Precipitation: annual average precipitation is 1 203.6 mm. The annual maximum precipitation is 879.9 mm. The average annual rainfall days are 140 days, and the annual rainfall days ≥ 25 mm are 12 days. The average snowfall days over the years is 6.6 days. The precipitation mainly concentrated in April to September, accounting for 67% of the annual precipitation. The average thunderstorm days over the years are 38 days.

Wind condition: southeast wind prevails in summer, often attacked by typhoon; In winter, northwest wind prevails and Siberian cold wave is easy to invade. The normal wind direction is se and ESE, and the strong wind direction is se. The annual average wind speed was 3.3 m / S (1982). The typhoon season is from July to September, and the duration of typhoon influence is generally one day, up to three days.

Fog condition: fog days are mostly concentrated in March to April in spring and October to December in winter. It is advection fog in spring and radiation fog in winter. The average fog days over the years were 40.3 days, and most of them dissipated after 10 am.


      The tide is an irregular semidiurnal tide. The highest tide level over the years is 6.75m, and the lowest tide level over the years is -1.78m; The average tide level over the years is 2.18 meters; The average high tide level is 4.40 m and the average bottom tide level is -0.29 M; The average tidal range is 4.69m, the maximum tidal range is 7.52M, and the minimum tidal range is 1.06M. The design high tide level is 5.10M (10% high tide cumulative frequency tide level), and the design bottom tide level is -0.80m (90% bottom tide cumulative frequency tide level); The check high tide level is 6.65m (once in 50 years), and the check low tide level is -1.8050m (once in 50 years). The base plane is Wusong zero. The tidal current is strong and the flow direction is reciprocating. The maximum vertical average velocity is 1.15 M / s at high tide and 1.21 M / s at low tide; The maximum velocity at the measuring point is 1.33 M / s at rising tide and 1.51 M / s at falling tide. The waves mainly appear from May to August, especially in August. The normal wave direction is se, e, and the strong wave direction is se, e, ESE.
