DP World: Successful Investment in Algeria Highlighted

DP World Chairman HE Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem has met with Algeria’s Minister of Transport HE Amar Ghoul to discuss DP World’s successful continued investment in Algeria.

DP World was awarded the concession to operate the container terminal in the Port of Algiers, DP World Djazair, in 2008. DP World Djazair is a joint venture between DP World and the Algiers Port Authority (EPAL). DP World also operates DP World Djen-Djen to the east of the capital city.

Since DP World Djazair was established, DP World has brought in new equipment and specialised training for its staff to improve efficiency and productivity, actively contributing to the continued expansion of the economic growth of Algeria.

In January this year, further investment began, with DP World beginning a two year program that will see further upgrades to the infrastructure at DP World Djazair with the introduction of modern container handling equipment, including state of the art ship-to-shore container handling cranes to service vessels and rubber tyred gantry (RTG) cranes for the container yard.

The Algiers Port Authority has begun refurbishing the yard to prepare for the arrival of the new equipment, while DP World Djazair will rebuild the shipside berths to accommodate the container cranes, as well as repair three berths to improve efficiency, safety and security.
