Qatar’s Ministry of Transportation and Communication (MOTC) has completed the dredging works at Doha Port as part of its redevelopment project.

The Doha Port dredging and expansion project was awarded to a consortium that includes the Middle East Dredging Co. (MEDCO).

According to MOTC, up to 3.5 million m³ of material in the approach channel have been cleared and an extra berthing has been provided to accommodate more than one giant cruise ship.

Doha Port redevelopment works contribute to achieving the Qatar National Tourism Sector Strategy 2018-2023 that aims to place Qatar among world’s best tourism locations, within the framework of the larger Qatar National Vision 2030,” said Sheikh Mohamed bin Khalid Al Thani, Director of Technical Affairs, MOTC.

Transforming Doha Port into a main hub for cruise ships in the region will generate significant economic returns to several key industries in Qatar like hotels, restaurants, retail and service sectors,” he added. “Additionally, it’s going to be one of Qatar’s key landmarks during the FIFA World Cup 2022.

Sheikh Al Thani said that Doha Port will contribute to boosting Qatar’s ranking as a favorite tourism destination in the region through receiving supersize cruise ships and providing all that is required to help bolster such a crucial industry, which, eventually, contributes to economic diversification.
