First CMA CGM container ship arrives in Duqm Port
Port of Duqm has received the first containers from French shipping giant CMA CGM via the Oman Express Service operated by Oman Shipping Company through its subsidiary Oman Container Line.
The containers, which were loaded with project equipment for Sebacic Oman SAOC, soon to become the world’s largest Sebacic Acid plant in Duqm, originated from China and were transshipped via another regional port.
Port of Duqm received the containers at its early container terminal, from where they will be delivered to Sebacic Oman’s site. A ceremony was organised at the port to celebrate this major event under the patronage of Said bin Hamdoon Al Harthy, undersecretary for Ports and Maritime Affairs at the Ministry of Transport and Communications, and other senior officials, by the major stakeholders.
“The port’s container terminal is currently under construction and will be commissioned in the course of 2019.
