The Port of Salalah in Oman will invest $120m to expand its container and general cargo terminals, as part of a 20-year masterplan.

The plan was initiated in early 2008 by the Port of Salalah in conjunction with the Salalah Free Zone and the Ministry of Transport and Communication.

The project includes a northern breakwater, additional aggregate/bulk ship-loading facilities, additional liquid commodities loading and unloading facilities, as well as cruise and ferry terminal facilities.
