Tadjoura Port operational before 2012

Posted on August 23, 2010


Djibouti will start the construction of a new port in Tadjoura by the end of 2010. The Tadjoura Port will serve Ethiopia’s northern part and is expected to be operational within two years, according to DP World, a Dubai-based company that runs all port affairs in Djibouti.

A study on the future Tadjoura Port is currently being executed. It will be finished next month. After that, the project will be open for bids as to determine who is going to construct the new harbour.
Vast growth

“It will be another opportunity for Ethiopia,” says Aden Ahmed Douale, chairman of the Djibouti Ports & Free Zones Authority. “It’s our biggest client and one of the largest countries on the African continent. More importantly, its economy is vastly growing. That type of country needs more than just one port.”
