$300M port expansion plan for Sihanoukville.

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

England is just a cluster fuck
we measure large distances in miles, but smaller distances in cm/m, but our height in feet and inches
some trades still use feet and inches (carpentry) im a bricky and we work in millimetres
before boxing i used to weigh myself in stones, now i use kg
we use Celsius and only use Fahrenheit when we have a freakishly hot day when it gets to near the 100' mark haha

Hi this taa, your ignorant neighbor from across the pond. So I goggled stone and found it that is 16lbs. According to Wikipedia there were several stones around all with varying weights. But England adopted the "wool stone.". Pray tell what the fuck is a wool stone?

A wool stone was simply a stone weighing 14lb (not 16lb) and which was used as a standard weight for the sale of wool. There were other weights of stones in England for other products. In 1350 the 14lb weight was declared to be the standard stone.
By the way, lb also means stone:
Lībra in Latin originally means ‘stone’, thence ‘pound weight’ (i.e., the little stone you put on scales to weigh things), thence ‘pound’ (the weight of one of those stones), and only from that was the meaning generalised to mean ‘weight’ in general. The phrase lībra pondō ‘a pound by weight’ was then used to refer unambiguously to the second meaning. (source:stackexchange).
In England the plural of lb is lb (which is logical given what is stands for), but I think in the USA you write lbs.

Thanks for your clarification. How did they weigh the stone-with another stone?

Port unveils $200m expansion
4 May 2017
Sihanoukville Autonomous Port (SAP) is to build a $200 million container terminal as part of an expansion project due to be completed by 2022.
The expansion is intended to address a surge in the volume of containers passing through the country’s only deep-sea port. The existing container terminal is expected to be overloaded by 2023.

Lou Kim Chhun, SAP director-general, told Khmer Times yesterday that the volume of containers passing through the port will increase to more than 700,000 TEUs in 2023. The 20-foot container, referred to as a twenty-foot equivalent unit or TEU, is the industry standard reference for cargo volume and vessel capacity.

“In response to increased demand, SAP will invest about $200m to build a new 350-metre container terminal equipped with modern shipment facilities,” Mr Kim Chhun said. The terminal will be 14.5 metres deep.
“We are studying the project with the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and want it to be ready by 2022. We currently have more than 400,000 TEUs passing through the port. With the expansion, we will be able to handle about 1,000,000 million TEU.”
He added that Cambodia will seek a loan from JICA to build the new container terminal.

Public Works and Transport Minister Sun Chanthol visited the port on Monday. He said strong economic growth had resulted in the increase of containers coming into the port.
“SAP’s new container terminal will service this growth,” he said.

Mr Chanthol said that between 2002 and 2005, the state-owned enterprise spent $33.7 million on building a 240-metre container port. From 2005 to 2009, SAP also spent $34.8m on expanding that port to 400 metres.
In 2015, SAP launched a $74.2m project to build a multipurpose seaport measuring 330 metres wide and 13.5 metres deep. It is about 65 percent finished and should be complete by next year.
“So far, SAP has received about $178.6m in loans from JICA,” Mr Chanthol said...

“The guaranteed annual dividend is at least five percent in the first three years for all public investors,” he added.

Oh, well, if it's guaranteed...
