Tangier, Morocco (PortSEurope) October 11, 2018 – Tangier port has undergone major changes with a redeveloped marina, as a result of the redevelopment of Tangier-ville, launched in 2011. It is a project with a budget of MAD 6.7 billion ($710 million/€614 million) and encompassing various components including residential and maritime complexes.
The idea was born at the time of the transfer of a part of the activities of the port Tangier-city to that of TangerMed in 2010 to redevelop the historic port of the city and to reconcile it with its urban environment by dropping the walls and fences that separated it giving it a marina and a fishing port. The model that was in charge was none other than Puerto Banús, the sporting harbour of the city of Marbella in Spain.
Currently, the works have reached the last stages. Those of the first part of the marina were closed and inaugurated this summer, the first boaters have already moored their vessels. A few steps from the marina, quays will serve as leisure spaces. The first of them has already entered service. A few metres away is the one that is presented as the largest luminous fountain in Morocco with a length of 107 metres, a real attraction.
A little further east is the site of the future fishing port. It received his first users in July and offers them a modern and airy space with storage warehouses for both deep-sea and artisanal fishermen. Tangier-ville will also offer a “shopping” area for cruise passengers.
