DP World is about to open a new terminal designed to accommodate the largest operating cruise vessels this summer at Limassol port, Cyprus.

The new terminal consists of seven pods with an internal area of 7,000 square meters. Along with 24-hour availability the terminal offers integrated services including home call and day call handling capability.

DP World Limassol has a draft of up to 11 metres (tide free) and three 400 metre berths that can accommodate cruise vessels. It is the third addition to the cruise terminal portfolio that DP World operates globally, after cruise terminal operations in Mina Rashid, Dubai and Quinquela Martin, Argentina.

The company said that Limassol is likely to be the first port of call for cruise lines after transiting the Suez Canal.

 “Cyprus is a centre for tourism and trade across the Mediterranean Sea and beyond and we are delighted to help develop its cruise capability. The terminal is another example of how partnerships with government on infrastructure projects help boost economies, creating jobs and prosperity for the country and its people,” Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Group Chairman and CEO, DP World, said.

“This is an exciting time for Limassol and Cyprus and DP World Limassol is focused on delivering a long-term legacy creating employment opportunities and helping Limassol reach its potential of becoming a fully-serviced home port for cruise ships,” Charles Meaby, General Manager, DP World Limassol added.

In April 2016, DP World Limassol was awarded a 25-year concession to exclusively operate the multi-purpose terminal in Limassol. P&O Maritime, a DP World subsidiary was also awarded a 15-year concession to provide the full range of marine services in the Port of Limassol.

The terminal’s activities, comprising of three multi-purpose quays, include break-bulk, general cargo, Ro-Ro, oil & gas services and the new passenger terminal.
