Project Description

The main aim of the project is to develop a new area of about 55000 sq.m., located at Cairo Governorate On the Nile east bank as multi –purpose river terminal capable of handling a variety of commodities including amongst others containers ,cement clinker , dry bulk , grains and general cargoes with total capacity of 5 million ton/year serving 3 large river barges in the same time.

The design takes into the consideration that the river terminal should be as modular as possible to allow the highest flexibility for materials handled.

The port was divided into three terminals

  • Terminal for dry bulk
  • Terminal for containers
  • Terminal for grains

The 350 meter long and 7 meter deep quay walls were designed to act as support for the gantry crane using deep piles systems, the yards were designed to accommodate loads for 5 containers in height. Other storage warehouses, silos, service buildings and infrastructure were also fully designed and tendered.
