Algeria issues tender for Djen Djen port deal

09 November 2009

Design and build contract covers construction of container terminal

Algeria’s Transport Ministry has issued the tender for a contract to design and build a container terminal at Djen Djen port, 350 kilometres east of Algiers.

The ministry will accept bids from individual companies and joint ventures of an international contractor and a local business. The bid deadline is 14 December.

Dubai’s DP World took over the management of the port and renamed it DP World Djen Djen in June (MEED 1:6:09).

In May, the ministry awarded a deal to South Korea’s Daewoo Engineering & Construction for the port expansion. The contract includes expanding the north and east breakwaters of the port and the creation of a new breakwater.

DP World Djen Djen will act as a trans-shipment hub for the western Mediterranean and will also be the main terminus for eastern Algeria.

DP World also manages the Port of Algiers under a 30-year contract it won in April. It renamed the port DP World Djazair.
