Port of Salalah Undertakes First Ship-to-Ship Transfer

Oman’s Port of Salalah completed its first ship-to-ship transfer operation (STST) at Salalah anchorage as part of its expanding service offering in 2018.

The new service was performed by Fendercare Marine which transferred vegetable oil between the vessels NCC Nasma to Ariana while both were in the harbor anchorage.

“Our new offering of ship-to-ship transfer of bulk liquids is designed to serve the regional market and Africa’s economic demand,” Andrew Dawes, Port of Salalah CEO, said.

The management of Port of Salalah is working on a number of new business opportunities that will contribute to the growth of the shipping & logistics sector in Oman and support the Government’s vision of seeing the logistics sector as one of the pillars of economic growth and diversification of the Sultanate of Oman.

“We look forward to establishing Salalah as a key STST location where Fendercare and the Port of Salalah can support the oil and gas market,” Tom Fitchew, Business Development Manager of Fendercare, said.

Operated by APM Terminals, the Port of Salalah handles both a container terminal and a general cargo terminal. In 2017, the port saw record volumes in both the container and the general cargo business with an increase of 18.7 % and 4.2 %, respectively.
