|Sri Lanka New fisheries harbor in Oluvil|
The Oluwil Fisheries harbour in the Eastern Province opened by President Mahinda Rajapaksa.
Sri Lanka Ports Authority (SLPA) and the Danish construction company signed the Oluvil Port Project agreement to build the new harbor in Oluvil in March 2008 at a cost of Euro 46 million with the financial assistance from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark (DANIDA).
The harbour comprises an ice manufacturing factory and its breakwater is 1,475 meters long.
The Commercial Harbour has enough depth to handle ships up to 5,000 metric tons and the Fisheries Harbour can hold more than 250 fishing boats simultaneously.
