Limassol, Cyprus (PortSEurope) July 21, 2019 – In April 2016 DP World Limassol was awarded a 25-year concession to exclusively operate the multi-purpose and Cruise terminal in Limassol commencing February 2017, and last week the company presented details of upgrades and investments in infrastructure and equipment.
DP World Limassol said that it had acquired brand-new equipment in January 2019 as part of an ongoing upgrade of the Limassol port infrastructure. The new machinery was put into operation in March 2019, following intensive training of staff and has contributed to speeding up operations at the Multi-purpose port terminal. More specifically, the new equipment includes: a new, high-tech LHM 420 mobile harbour crane, a Liebherr reach stacker, designed for fast handling of containers and semi-trailers, internal cargo platforms used for Ro-Ro and container operations, fork lifts, ITVs and trailers and various crane attachments.
The company has proceeded with significant investments in order to modernise the new cruise terminal and enhance tourists’ experience, including the complete landscaping of the surrounding area, the installation of an automated irrigation system, the installation of a full range of latest technology, in all internal and external areas, including remote smart monitors in both arrival and departure halls.
State of the art CCTV & access control systems and a full range of recycling bins within the terminals have been installed, and two new duty free shops will open this summer.
In addition, DP World Limassol was awarded at the recent 2019 Cyprus Tourism Awards with the Silver Award in the category of “Strategy & Innovation/Modernisation of Infrastructure” while MedCruise recognised the terminal as the “Most Efficient Cruise Terminal” in the maiden MedCruise Awards.
An onsite oil & gas logistics base has also been set up at DP World Limassol area, including a 430-metre dedicated berth to oil & gas activities, mobilisation/demobilisation operations, open bonded and covered storages/warehouses, offices and drilling liquid production facilities.
