The ceremony of launching Damerjog Liquid Bulk Port Construction

The President of the Republic, H.E Mr Ismail Omar Guelleh, officially launched the beginning of the construction works of an ultra-modern oil port, capable of accommodating the latest generation vessels.

The President of the Somali region of Galmudug, H.E Mr Ahmed Abdi Karieh was a guest of honor at the ceremony.

The structure consists of an offshore jetty that is connected to onshore storage facilities. This will serve multiple end users, enabling them to load and unload a wide variety of products to and from inland storage facilities. The jetty is located around 3km from land, with a causeway that provides access for vehicles and pipeline services. It is designed for the berthing of two ships – one capable of accommodating vessels of up to 100,000 DWT and the second is for vessels between up to 30,000 DWT, with an annual throughput capacity of over 13 Million tons.

The construction of this work is entrusted to a Moroccan company, SOMAGEC, specializing in the construction of port infrastructure. The Damerjog Oil Port, the construction of which has been launched today, is one of the phases of the "Damerjog Djibouti Industrial Zone" Mega Project, a program intended to ensure Djibouti's industrial development.
