About The port

Opened in 1976, the port is just 266 nautical miles from the Bab Al Mandab Strait. The port has undergone three development stages that included the building of more berths, levees, a control tower, a power substation, warehouses, fueling stations, a desalination plant, and administrative and residential facilities.
