Morocco to Construct New Multipurpose Port Terminal in Agadir

The National Ports Agency (ANP) using an investment of MAD 356.6 Mn to construct a new multipurpose terminal at the commercial port in Agadir.

The new terminal will contribute to economic and social development at both local and regional levels, benefiting all stakeholders. The terminal is expected to be completed by 2019.

In order to meet the requirements of incoming bulk carriers, shipping containers, cruise ships and other merchandise vessels, the new port will be equipped with five cranes of small capacity, four cranes of big capacity and a cold storage system.

The port sector in Morocco is one of the country’s most important industries, and Agadir port is already considered a key port, due to its contribution in the development of the Souss-Massa-Daraa region and the national economy.

Agadir port has gradually become a multi purpose complex, tailoring to both fishing and commercial needs as well as containing a port for leisure boats with a marina.

Agadir port connects to Essaouira by main road number eight and to Marrakech by road number 40.

The port is currently enjoying an impressive growth in the number of imports, including bulk cargo, so the new project will strengthen this as well as deepening business ties and improving both infrastructure and infrastructure-related services nationwide.
