Willemen Wins Tangier MedPort Construction Contract

The Dutch company APM Terminals has awarded the construction of a new container terminal for APM Terminals Tangier MedPort to a conglomeration of four companies of the Willemen Groep.

The companies involved are Aswebo, Aannemingen Van Wellen, Franki Construct and Cosimco.

The terminal will be built on a site of 53 hectares and will have a quay length of 1.200 meters. It will be the first automated container terminal in Africa.

APM Terminals has been active in the port of Tangier since 2007 and has decided to expand the container terminal to better serve future trade volumes and larger container ships.

The total project consists of 4 lots or ‘packages’. All 4 were assigned to the Willemen Groep, which was, among other things, responsible for the development of a container terminal for MPET (MSC PSA European Terminal) in the port of Antwerp.

The ‘Letter of Acceptance’ was signed on the 7th of November 2016. It states that the work must be executed in a time span of 662 calendar days, with the 8th of November 2016 as ‘Commencement Day ‘ or start date.
