Damietta Port comes at the forefront of the Egyptian ports recently developed by the Egyptian Ministry of Transport considering its distinguished location. The port is about 23 nautical miles from the northern entrance of the Suez Canal, which is a major advantage for all the vessels crossing the Suez Canal. Damietta Port also has huge potential, qualifying it to become the prime Egyptian commercial port.
One of its many advantages is the applied integrated automated system that serves the national economy. The Port is owned by the Egyptian Ministry of Transportation and is managed by the Damietta Port Authority which is tasked to execute a well-defined strategy that includes, among others, increasing the capacity of the port by adding more berthing lengths and deepening the basin into 17 m. This new berth adds 680 m of quay wall for multipurpose berthing and handling with a 17 m depth of berthing.
Our Scope of Works:
