Grand Faw Port Tenders Set for 2011

A tender is to be floated by Iraq's transport ministry in the fourth quarter of 2011 for the main construction contract of the estimated $6bn Grand Faw Port in Basrah province, Meed has reported.

The Grand Faw port is designed to include 7,000 metres of dock for container ships and an additional 3,500 metres of dock for general cargo. The port will be 17 metres deep, allowing it to receive some of the world's largest cargo ships. At present, Umm Qasr port is Iraq's only deep-sea port.
