Hutchison Ports, through Oman-based subsidiary Hutchison Ports Sohar, has entered into an agreement with Sohar Port and Freezone to conduct a joint feasibility study on the expansion of Oman’s Sohar Port alongside the addition of a new container terminal capable of receiving mega-vessels.

The study will commence this year and will assess the social, environmental, logistical, in-country value, and economic impacts of any future expansion.

Hutchison said the addition of new areas will increase the attractiveness of the port and comprise the necessary infrastructure to attract important international shipping lines.
