Oman to double capacity at Salalah port
Oman’s government has unveiled plans to more than double the cargo handling capacity at its port in Salalah.
The Gulf state’s Ministry of Transport and Communications has awarded a commercial bid worth OMR55m (US$143m) which will see the port’s cargo handling capacity increase to 20m tonnes annually.
“The general cargo business has been growing rapidly here, and this new expansion will play a significant role in serving the continued development of businesses in Oman and the surrounding region” said Port of Salalah’s CEO, Peter Ford.
A statement released by the company that runs the port did not mention when the work is expected to be completed.
