Port of Salalah returns to full capacity in third quarter


Oman's Port of Salalah, near the Yemeni border, expects that its cyclone-damaged container terminal will return to full capacity in the third quarter, reports Dubai's Maritime Standard.
Salalah Port chairman Ahmed Bin Nasser Al Mahrizi said that regional transshipment is the backbone of the container terminal's activities, and that it remains stable.
Salalah Container Terminal (SCT) experienced a sharp drop in throughput over the first three months of 2019, the Port of Salalah board of directors has revealed in its quarterly report.
The terminal handled 917,000 TEU in the three-month period, which was 12 per cent lower than in the corresponding period in 2018. Productivity, as measured by berth moves per hour, was however up slightly at SCT.
The drop, in container activity, is attributed primarily to the impact of Cyclone Mekunu last year and the subsequent reduction in the terminal's available capacity.
The port said that the restoration of lost capacity is expected in the third quarter of 2019 with the completion of repairs and the delivery of replacement equipment.
