Port of Duqm seeks a container terminal operator

The Port of Duqm Company SOAC (PODC) has launched an international tender to select a terminal operator for its container terminal in Duqm, located in the Special Economic Zone of Duqm.


PODC expects the terminal will be developed into a transhipment hub to serve regional markets including East Africa, the Gulf and the Indian Ocean.


“The port of Duqm currently offers multiple terminal facilities and is home to a major shipyard complex. The next state of its development is focusing on the first phase of a new container terminal, with target capacity of 1.7 Million TEU and scope for terminal expansion. The selected operator will be granted a 30-year Licence Agreement to develop and operate the facility, while marine infrastructure, yard paving and buildings are already available,” PODC said.


The tender process begins with an “Invitation to Prequalify (ITP) where respondents will be invited to present their qualifications and indicative commercial strategy, under an Expression of Interest (EOI) submission, on the basis of which a shortlist of prequalified bidders will be established, to carry out a competitive dialogue for developing the Project Agreements and selected a preferred bidder for award.”

The IPT is now available from under the reference “Tender#ITC/T/005/2021 Licensing Agreement for Duqm Container Terminal". The last date for receiving requests for clarifications is 21 August 2021 and EOIs are due on 9 September 2021.


The Port of Duqm currently handles around 200,000 TEU a year, which it processes using mobile harbour cranes and reachstackers at what is currently a multi-purpose terminal. The facility has crane rails for STS cranes and the container yard is laid out for RTGs.
