Jeddah terminal set for major expansion


Capacity of Red Sea Gateway Terminal to increase to 2.5m TEU by 2015

Red Sea Gateway Terminal (RSGT), the newest of three container terminals at Saudi Arabia’s Jeddah Islamic Port (JIP), is set to undergo a major expansion with a tender linked to the project to be announced in the coming days.

The expansion project, increasing RSGT’s capacity from 1.8 million TEU to 2.5 million TEU, will complete the original construction plans for the Saudi terminal, according to Port Strategy.

Under the proposed plans, the terminal’s quay length will be enhanced by a further 255 metres to 1,324 metres, the main berth extended from 745 metres to 850 metres, while a new second berth will be enhanced from a feeder berth to a complete new berth measuring as much as 474 metres.

The project is scheduled for completion in 2015.
