The construction of the Nador West Med port is progressing rapidly


The construction works of the Nador West Med port are progressing rapidly. The main infrastructure dyke was installed on Friday, the Ministry of Equipment and Water said.

“It’s a challenge won to complete the work of the protective works before the winter season”, rejoiced Sanae El Amrani, director of ports at the ministry, specifying that this phase will make it possible to carry out the docking maneuvers and protect ships and docks.

After this stage, the port infrastructure will be installed, including in particular 17 other caissons for the oil platforms, underlined the official, adding that with this state of progress, the delivery time of the port complex scheduled for the end 2023 will be respected and its commissioning in 2024.

Initiated to strengthen Morocco’s energy and industrial sovereignty, Nador West Med will eventually make it possible to process in a first phase 3 million containers (twenty-foot equivalent TEU), 25 million tonnes of hydrocarbons, 7 million tonnes of coal and 3 million miscellaneous goods.
