Yemen: Port of Aden Plans Dredging Project

The Ministry of Transport and Yemen Gulf of Aden Ports Corporation (Port of Aden) invites the qualified consultants companies  to express their interest and wish in the participation of submitting the required consultancy services for deepening and widening the access channel in the Port of Aden.

The wishing companies have to submit all the data and documents that confirm its competence.

Aden is recognized as a national resource with great potential, described as “Yemen’s Gateway to the World”. To handle the world’s largest container vessels, the Aden Container Terminal (ACT) at the North Shore of Aden’s Inner Harbour was designed and built. This facility was commissioned in March 1999 and provides the port with world-class container handling facilities. ACT’s throughput reached 500,000 TEU’s/year in 2008 and is forecast to grow significantly in future.

The construction of the ACT and the recent joint venture with between the Ports Corporation and Dubai World Ports are signs that Aden is moving forward. Aden, as a port and as a city, in one of the most interesting countries in the Middle East, anticipates a dynamic and successful future.
