Industrial and other projects now going ahead in the Port of Sohar are worth $10,800 million, Sohar Industrial Port Company (SIPC) chief executive Jan Meijer told MEED in Dubai on 31 October. The port has so far received about 100 vessels, though this figure will increase sharply following the installation of container cranes in the spring of 2006, and the start-up of the first three Sohar manufacturing industries next summer. ‘The project is going very well,’ said Meijer. He added that the new Sohar industries would directly and indirectly create 30,000 jobs.
