Hutchison Ports, Saudi Arabia inaugurate new box port

On 7 September 2022, Prince Mohammed bin Nasser bin Abdulaziz, the Governor of Jazan Region, inaugurated the Port of Jazan City for Primary and Downstream Industries (JCPDI Port), in cooperation with Hutchison Ports.

The President of the Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu, Eng. Khalid Al-Salem praised the achievements made at JCPDI and revealed that a range of investments and partnerships had been inaugurated recently, including the establishment of the Saudi Silk Road Company to attract Chinese industrial investments to Saudi Arabia, the investment and operation agreement with Hutchison Ports, as well as the agreement to establish an Alumina refinery with “Hangzhou Jinjiang”.

Al-Salem added that the total existing investments at JCPDI sum to about US$23 billion, though the city is still under construction.

Al-Salem clarified that the Port consists, in its first phase, of three industrial berths, an SPM that provides services to Saudi Aramco Refinery, three commercial berths for handling containers including general cargo and bulk goods, in addition to storage yards with special areas for storing and monitoring refrigerated containers.

Jazan port has a berth with a depth of 16.5 meters, which enables receiving modern fifth-generation ships with a capacity reaching more than 21,000 TEUs, and that can also handle general cargo and bulk cargo ships with a capacity of more than 100,000 tons per ship.

It is worth mentioning that JCPDI Port will be the southern gateway connecting the country to the world and the main gateway for logistics services in alignment with the national objectives under the Saudi Vision 2030 aiming to transform Saudi Arabia into a leading industrial power and a global logistics hub.

The Port has a total berth length of 1,250 metres for containers, bulk and general cargo, with a design capacity of one million TEUs per year and around 4 million tons of cargo, in addition to a liquid terminal for oil tankers of Saudi Aramco.
