Development Projects

Dry Bulk Terminal

The dry bulk terminal project will begin operation by Al-Adabiya Co. The terminal is designated to have a total berth length of 770 m and a water depth of 14 m.

Quay and Berth Rehabilitation​

The project comprises several small measures to rehabilitate quays and berths aprons. In particular, the rehabilitation of the berth aprons (pavement) from berth 2 to berth 8 are part of this project as well as the quay edges of berths 2, 3, 4 and 5.

Logistics and Storage Area

This project features the construction of a logistics and storage area of approx. 160,680 m². This area is to be developed by Adabiya Marine Management Company. The project is implemented through BOT scheme of partnership.

New Service / Small Vessel Pier

This project holds the erection of a pier for service vessels and small vessels. The total berth length is 300 m and the water depth is 7 m. The adjoining yard is approx. 45,000 m².

Future Projects

Dry Bulk Terminal

The project covers the construction of an additional dry bulk terminal with a total quay wall length of 560 m. The water depth will be 14 m and the annual handling volume capacity will be approx. 5.5m t.

Multi-purpose Terminal

The planned construction of an additional multi-purpose terminal will have a berth length of approx. 500 m and a water depth at the quay wall of ca. 14 m.

The number of berths in the port is 39, including:

  • General cargo berths-containers and RO-RO berths.
  • Grain and fodder berths.
  • Unpacked cargo berths, cooled cargo berths and general cargo berths.

The depth of sea waters in such berths ranges from 9 up to 14 meters, while its total length is 7837 meters. Such berths are provided with modern equipment and installations for cargo handling and stowage, in addition to carrying it from the port, also forklift and other electronic lifts of different types, some of which are of 3.2.15 tons capacity. Moreover, lifts for unloading grains, receiving dock with a length reaching 4000 meters and the sea depth along the dock ranging between 4.5 and 6 meters.

They are represented in Authorities, associations, councils and administrations working in the field of the Arab Sea Ports facilities.
