Tripoli, Libya (PortSEurope) November 28, 2021 – Earlier this month, the new maritime terminal on Libya’s Mediterranean coastline received its first “cruise” ship carrying passengers – the Kevalay Queen. It is the first passenger ship to visit the country in over 10 years. The local press described the vessel as a cruise ship. In fact, it is a Ro-Ro/passenger ship which recently operated on ferry
services around Corsica and Sardinia. The Misrata Maritime Terminal is a pubic-private partnership (PPP) enterprise, a venture with the Libyan Iron and Steel Company (representing the state) and Kevalay Tourism Services Company. The venture is supported by Libya’s Privatization and Investment Board which promotes foreign and national capital to set up investment projects. The Ro-Ro/passenger vessel is set to operate services to Izmir, Turkey, and Tunisia and Egypt. It has a capacity of 810 passenger, 2,000 tons of goods, 340 cars and 30 trucks. Libya is seeking foreign investment to develop its ports and would like to expand its offerings to international cruise ship companies. Copyright (C) PortSEurope. All Rights Reserved. 2021.
