The contract with MBL, in association with Huta Hegerfeld Saudia Ltd will deepen harbour approach channels, turning basins, waterways, and the South Terminal basin.

The upgrades will enable the arrival of giant vessels that hold a capacity up to 24,000 TEU.

With the contract with PC Marine Services, new berths (#26 to #31) measure 16 metres deep and 1,100 metres long will be built at the multi-cargo terminals to receive large bulk grain carriers and accommodate larger vessels to cover the local market demand.

Last month, MAWANI, in partnership with the Emirate of Makkah Province, launched the new Gate 9 expansion at Jeddah Islamic Port.
