As part of the company's innovative building information modeling management platform, and to boost efficiency, a drone makes four daily trips to collect information on progress in various parts of the 1.2 million square-meter construction site, said Han Wenfeng, Party secretary of the Nansha branch.

While it takes more than two hours for people to inspect the site, with dangerous and small points posing difficulties, the drone can accomplish the task in just over 10 minutes, reporting problems automatically, he said.

In a bid to turn the port into a benchmark project, an environmentally friendly approach has been taken to construction. For example, biodegradable pipelines are being used to drain underground water during construction.

The new terminal will include two 100,000-metric-ton berths, two 50,000-ton berths, 12 2,000-ton barge berths and four working vessel berths.

With its fourth phase, Nansha Port's annual container handling capacity will rise to 24 million twenty-foot equivalent units.
