Project Description
The project will develop a new Container Terminal in the deep-sea port of Enfidha. The main objectives of the Project are the following: . To make Tunisia a Regional and International hub for trade and services. . To meet the ever-growing needs of national maritime traffic demands. . To modernize port infrastructure with the creation of a new generation port. . To take advantage of economy of scale through operation of vessels up to 80,000 DWT instead of the current 25,000 DWT for solid bulk and 15,000 TEU Container vessels (- 17 m). . To attract a share of containers and bulk cargo trans-shipment operation in the Mediterranean Sea. . To create synergy between the port and the special logistic and economic zones, promote multi-modal transport and encourage investment in the region. . To promote regional development (the port hinterland spreads over the Center-East and West of the country). The project includes 2 phases: Phase 1 will be operating in early year 2024, out of which 1200 m of berths will be operating as soon as year 2022 (Phase 1a), starting with a handling capacity of 1 Million TEU per annum. The total capacity of Phase 1 is 4.3 Million TEU and is deemed sufficient to cope with the demand including Overseas, Domestic and Trans-shipment until around year 2043. Phase 2 is planned for operation in 2043 with a capacity corresponding to the ultimate forecasts of 4.8 million TEU by the year 2045. The main construction works for Phase 1 include: . Two break-waters: the north jetty with 800 m and the south jetty with 1,500 m in length . Dredging of the access channel (2300 m x 350 m) at a depth of 19 m, of the turning basin of diameter 900 m and depth 19 m and of the port basin with a width of 500 m and depth 18 m . Port access road (about 12 km) . Port administration buildings and tender wharf (200m) . Drinking water and power network connections . First phase of the container terminal (110 ha) with 2,000 m berth length (5 berths of 400 m) at -18m . First phase of the multipurpose terminal (28 ha) with berth length 1120 m at -15m The project does not include handling equipment (SSG, RTG, reach stackers, front-end Loaders, trailers, tractors) and miscellaneous ancillary equipment to be provided by the concessionaire. Phase 1 will be split in 2 tranches with only 1200 m of berths in the first tranche and an optional tranche for the remaining 800 m of berth. Postponement of the decision to go ahead with the second tranche provides the security and flexibility required to manage any unforeseen development that may affect implementation of the project (Market shifts, cost hikes, construction delays etc.). Phase 2 consists of port basin and container berth extension by 400 m with a 6th berth, a 400 m extension of the container terminal and 280 m extension of the multipurpose berth and terminal. Phase 2 construction is planned to start in 2041 and ready for operation in 2043. The site of the port of Enfidha is ample enough to allow for further extensions in future.
