     Update on Port of Salalah

    Jun 03, 2018 02:04 PM

    As already reported, Port of Salalah was severely affected by one of the worst cyclones in the recent history last week.

    Nearly two meters of flood water entered the port which practically submerged most of our equipment and infrastructure, which might require significant refurbishment and repairs to resume normal operations. The port has declared Force Majeure due to the cyclone.  The impact assessment is ongoing.


    To meet the nation’s demand in the wake of this emergency, the Port has been working the round the clock to clean the terminal and prepare for the commencement of limited operations. Port has commenced limited operations in our general cargo terminal by handling a few Omani navy vessels carrying relief cargo, an ORPIC vessel carrying fuel supply to the region and vessels for meeting the urgent needs of the local industries.  


    Limited startup of Container operations is progressing with the first container vessel likely to handle on June 3, 2018.


    Port of Salalah acknowledge the comprehensive support from the Government of Oman such as Ministry of Transport, ROP, Civil defense, Navy, Coast Guard, local authorities.
