Port of Sohar seeking to lease Terminal 2D

SOHAR Port and Freezone in Oman is looking to expansion with a plan to lease out of Terminal 2D.

The area originally earmarked as a container terminal in 2009 has now been dedicated to businesses in the metals and logistics sectors and has 100 hectares of land with easy access to cool water and surrounding industrial clusters.

Mark Geilenkirchen, ceo of SOHAR Port and Freezone says: “With several regional ports currently running out of space, SOHAR still has the capacity to further expand and attract prospective investments. Clustering is an innovative form of business. Therefore, the close proximity to our petrochemical, logistics and food clusters will also support the creation of upstream and downstream opportunities for further business developments.

“Moreover, as the Port and Freezone are both managed under a single entity, this allows for a seamless connection between the two, while also enhancing efficiency for feedstock imports and product exports,” he added.
