Egypt’s Damietta Port Authority has inaugurated a new multipurpose terminal at an investment cost of EGP 1.36 billion (USD 81.3 million).

The terminal includes a 630-meter-long, 17-meter-deep berth and is equipped with a backyard area of 50,000 square meters with anticipated capacity of about 4 million tons per year.

It has been established under the supervision of the Armed Forces Engineering Authority (AFEA) and implemented by a number of Egyptian national companies.

The completion of the works at the new terminal in Damietta Port were revealed by the country’s Minister of Transport, Engineer Kamel Al-Wazir.

Al-Wazir highlighted a number of project advantages such as being equipped with all necessary facilities to serve ships and cargoes including seawater firefighting pumps, rainwater drainage, facilities for feeding ships with fresh water and supplying ships with electricity within OPS technique as well as oil and waste reception facility from ships.

“This terminal will contribute to reduce vessel waiting time outside the port, increase cargo handling volumes, encourage further ship with bigger sizes and types, and buttress storage capacity inside port area,” Al-Wazir said.
