Djibouti Aspires to Build Largest Ship Maintenance Yard for Region

The administration of Ismael Omar Guelleh in Djibouti has plans to build what will be the largest ship maintenance yard for East Africa and on the Red Sea corridor at a projected cost of 400 million dollars. Yet, experts in charge of developing the project have to choose the site for the project between the north coast of Djibouti (around Tajourah) and the country’s south coast, around Damerjog.

Water depth, wind level and geographical protection are factors in determining where the shipyard will be erected, according to Aboubaker Omar Hadi, chairman of the Djibouti Ports & Free Zones Authority.

“Otherwise, you will have to build a very expensive facility for a water break,” he told Fortune.

With the desire to incorporate dry dock and lift system models, the ship maintenance yard will be the ninth on the continent and the second on the East African coast, next to the 70-year old African Marine & General Engineering Co Ltd of Kenya. However, Djibouti’s shipyard will have the capacity to repair ships with 50,000dwt (dead weight), while its contender in Mombassa handles only up to 12,000dwt.

“We have wanted to build this yard for the past five years,” Aboubaker told Fortune.

Djibouti is at the heart of the Europe-Far East sea route, the second of the three largest routes in the world, apart from the Pacific and North Atlantic routes. An average of 90 large and medium size vessels, operated by liners such as Maersk and MSE, sail on this route, carrying around six million units of containers a year. This is projected to grow by an annual rate of 10pc.

The country wants to claim 50pc of this annual traffic in transhipment container logistics, thus committing, in the next three years, a 1.54 billion-dollar investment in expanding its existing port facilities and building new ones, according to Aboubaker, who was here in Addis Abeba for two days late last week.

He came here to promote these projects, including the creation of a new free zone, Jaban-As Free Zone, on a 57ht plot, 12km west of Djibouti Town. It will cost an estimated 30 million dollars, Aboubaker disclosed.

The government of Djibouti has plans to launch the second phase of the Doraleh Port development at a cost of 330 million dollars and convert the old Djibouti Port to a general cargo facility, at a projected cost of 88.5 million dollars, while expanding the newly built oil terminal at the Port of Doraleh at a cost of 150 million dollars, upgrading the facility’s storage capacity by 30pc.

There are also three plans on the drawing board to build brand new ports, including a livestock port, handing two million head, annually, in the south of Djibouti at a projected cost of 50 million dollars; in Goubet (the central part of Djibouti) to support a 4.5 million-tonne salt export, which could cost 55 million dollars; and the Port of Tajourah, one of the closest sea gates to landlocked Ethiopia, to be built at a projected cost of 85 million dollars.


The Port of Tajourah is designed to facilitate a prospective annual export of 4.5 million tonnes of potash from Ethiopia. The Ethiopian government has granted a concession over a 481sqkm area in the Danakil Depression, Afar Regional State, to the Ethiopian Potash Corp, a Canadian firm based in Toronto, which began drilling in May 2011. This extreme north-eastern part of the country contains a reserve of 128 million tonnes of the resource at 21pc potash component, geologists believe.

Both governments have contracted out road building projects from the quarry to the port. The Ethiopian part is constructed by the Defence Construction Enterprise.

“We have mobilised close to 60pc of the financing to pay for all these projects,”
Aboubaker told Fortune.

The financing to pay for the construction of the shipyard, which is still under development, comes partly from the Djiboutian government and half from private investors in Europe and India. Their identities, however, remain confidential, and Aboubaker declined to disclose them.

However, the final deal is due by February 2012, and the launching of construction after three months, according to Aboubaker. The design and feasibility studies to justify the project are developed by one of the partners, which is a European company.


This is interesting and very ambitious! If these projects are implemented, thousands of jobs could be created and it would further strengthen our position of logistics hub in the region, propelling the economy. I really hope these projects, at least some of them get realized.

This huge project is undeniably very interesting since it’ll decrease the unemployment…

Djibouti believes in Ethiopia’s growth

Djibouti is planning to invest over USD 1.5 billion in the next three years on ports and maritime related business activities, keeping Ethiopia in mind.

The Djibouti Ports and Free Zones Authority chairman, Aboubaker Omer Hadi, disclosed the intent of his agency last Friday at a reception held with clients and business partners at the Sheraton Addis.
Aboubaker said the major investment is going to be on a new ship repair and dry dock infrastructure that is going to cost 400 million dollars, while the second phase of the Doraleh Container Terminal will be constructed with an outlay of 330 million dollars with a capacity of three million TEU’s.
“The current Doraleh Container Terminal traffic is expected to reach its full capacity of handling 1.2 million TEU’s by the end of 2012 and we need to increase our capacity by constructing another terminal to handle the increasing traffic,” Aboubaker added. Djibouti Port handles over 90 percent of Ethiopia’s rapidly growing import.

The 150 million dollar construction of the second phase of the Oil Terminal is also expected to start in 2012 aiming to increase the current capacity by 30 percent.

According to the chairman, the port’s activity of non-containerized traffic in 2011 increased by 60 percent reaching 4.5 million metric tons. In relation to containerized cargo service, traffic doubled to reach 800 thousand TEU compared to last year’s same time activity.

The petroleum traffic to Ethiopia also surged to 2.3 million cubic meters on average in 2010 and 2011. “This is a development supported by additional capacity created following the inauguration of the first phase of Doraleh Container Terminal,” Aboubaker said.

In addition the Djiboutian authorities are also set to expand the Port of Djibouti’s outer jetty berths and increase its depths from 12 to 13.75 meters with a total investment of 88.5 million dollars. This will provide the port with a capacity to accommodate six million tons of cargo a year in its first phase and three million extra tons in its second phase.

The authority also aspires to develop Tadjourah port at a cost of 85 million dollars. The port located 15 Km from Tadjourah and expected to be completed by 2013 will be mainly for bulk commodities like potash, explained Aboubaker.

Construction of the Port of Goubet will also consume an investment of 55 million dollars and is expected to be operational in 2013. It is a port primarily intended for the export of salt and will have the capacity of handling 4.5 million tons of traffic per year.

The authority has also a plan to set up a livestock port inside the existing Djibouti port at a cost of 20 million dollars with a capacity to serve two million heads of livestock annually. It also plans to develop a Free Zone, the Jaban Us, in PK12 at a cost of 30 million dollars, and expects to launch its study in 2012.

The coming three years will now be dedicated to the development of the Ports and Free Zones with a total outlay of 1.5 billion dollars, announced Aboubaker Omar Hadi, the newly appointed head of Djibouti Ports and Free Zones Authority.

Aboubaker, a man in his fifties who previously worked at the Port of Lagos in Nigeria, succeeded Aden Ahmed Doualeh in July 2011. With a rich career in the field of transport and port affairs, particularly with many qualities such as leadership and flexibility, he is considered the right person to take the authority to a higher level. Aboubaker has had a thirty-year career in the port of Djibouti, where he made his debut in the early 80’s.

In his speech Aboubaker noted that his office is in discussion with the ministries of transport and customs authority of South Sudan, Ethiopia and Djibouti so as to finalize the transit agreement and pave the way for South Sudan cargo to transit through Ethiopia and use the port of Djibouti as its first port. He explained the road has been completed on the Ethiopian side and is well in progress in South Sudan. But, he said, for the short and medium term the options will be the waterways from Malakal to Juba and Wau using multimodal roads and barges.

The Djibouti Ports & Free Zones Authority is the governing authority that sets the rules, directives and overarching principles for the smooth and efficient running of the current and future ports; as well as free zones, in Djibouti.

As of July 1, 2011 the management contract between DP World and the Djibouti Ports & Free Zones Authority come to an end, and the general cargo has since been handled by the authority. In June 2000, the government of Djibouti and DPWorld signed a 20 year contract to manage the Port of Djibouti facilities which were later extended. During that period of cooperation, the plan to construct a new port emerged in November 2006, and the cooperation evolved into a venture on Doraleh Port also to be managed by DPWorld. The Doraleh Port includes a container and an oil terminal which was a 450 million dollar venture where the government of Djibouti gets two third and DPWorld one third of the revenue from the port.

There are efforts to get South Sudan to use our ports as well. Really glad they're competing this hard with Kenya in order to get the South Sudanese market. Such increases in overall port capacities make more sense with Ethiopia's growing economy and South Sudan.

Thanks darling! I appreciate your support, if it wasn't for people like you I'd leave this forum long ago.

I'll keep sharing it, but then people don't seem to be receptive at all, I do wonder sometimes whether there is a certain degree of satisfaction in self-loathing and critics. Positive subjects like this one (one of the most ambitious projects Djibouti ever had) won't get a lot of discussion going, but talk about tribes and other bullshit, you see people participating.

Or is it because the article is in English?

Anyway, weren't you supposed to join me somewhere else? What happened to that?

Désolé "soeur", je comprends pourquoi tu es grinchant! je compatis que tu traverses un moment difficile, mais il y aura de la concurrence entre les familles au pouvoir: celle d'iog et celle de kadra! Si tu ne fais partie, ni à une , ni l'autre, inutile de croire aux miracles!

We believe that Djibouti is capable of introducing, planning and executing any projects to boost national economics whether it's from the public or private sector.

However, Djibouti has been a victim of mishandling, corrupting and destroying so many projects that we do no believe at any new projects that the government nor the so called news informs.

Many project came to Djibouti or were studied by many funds institution that have not come to light but some people made profit by just pocketing the funds to their personal bank.

For example, what happen to the rail project. Ethiopia is signing on it because it is a great opportunity but Djibouti is still slow at responding to the same level.

Djibouti's potential is great! Too bad we have a team of useless and corrupt officials. I understand your pessimism, for someone who is fan of development projects and follows them, I realize the important number of projects that never materialized. But abandoning hope and adopting such a pessimistic stance won't get us far.

We have to keep on track with everything that goes on so that we know exactly what was realized and what wasn't, we'll be able to have a better picture of the economic situation in our country and confront the lies and regime propaganda.

Well said sister! Too many deceptions kill dream, faith and hope. We don't believe anymore in fairy tales. Who among our official thieves made a single projet a reality???

I am not pessimist but I have to accept the hard truth that the current regime has no power in anything.

Am I wrong to think that they have used the funds for the country and people as their personal bank? Nope.

I am aware on certain projects that are pending, in progress or completed. But, the loss are higher than the gain. For instance, the funds of a project are given without any further confirmation or research of the work. Loans are given without any confirmation that the client will respect their work.

One day, we will rise with a better hope. Today, I and many djiboutians do not trust the futur of Djibouti in the hands of the current recycled regime.
