Description

Despite the bleak economic outlook, the global ports and terminals are poised for further expansion to accommodate future larger volumes and bigger ships. According to research company Proleads, in Middle East alone, there are currently around 50 new seaport developments or expansions projects valued at more than $33 billion with individual budgets ranging from $10 million to $5.5 billion. The biggest seaport being planned is Qatar's New Mesaieed Port ($5.5 billion - heading a top ten of new or expansion port projects), followed by King Abdullah Economic City Seaport, Saudi Arabia ($US5bn); Khalifa Port and Industrial Zone, Abu Dhabi ($US2.5bn) and Sirte Port, Libya ($US2bn) among others.



Ports and terminals operators are under constant pressure to develop and improve their infrastructure that include dredging, berth expansion, acquisition or new equipment and re-branding exercise in the aim to become the global port of choice.
