Kuala Linggi International Port (KLIP) is about to change the seascape on the Malaysian side of the Strait of Malacca.

The port, well known for deepwater anchorage that accommodates storage tankers and vessels conducting ship-to-ship transfers, is moving ahead with the second phase of its development.

Early next year, reclamation works will begin to create a large industrial port on a man-made island between Port Klang in Malaysia and Singapore.
