A joint venture organisation has been granted a concession contract for the construction and operation of berths at a French port.

The Port of Le Havre has granted PortSynergy Group (GMP), a joint venture held by DP World and Terminal Link, a subsidiary of the CMA CGM Group, the concession contract for the construction and operation of berths 11 and 12 at the Port of Le Havre’s Port 2000 terminal, which includes GMP’s Terminal de France (TDF).

Louis Jonquiere, managing director of GMP, said: "The signing marks a new chapter in our partnership with the Port of Le Havre. The addition of the two new berths will enable us to secure more volume and provide high-efficiency services. As a major hub port, the expansion in the terminal will facilitate the capture of more volume from the trade, benefitting from the momentum that has built in the region.”

The development represents an additional operational capacity of 1 million TEUs and will include a 700m long quay and a 42-hectare site. The concession agreement is for a term of 34 years, including two years of studies and design, two years of civil engineering work and 30 years of operation.

The new berths are envisaged to include new state-of-the-art equipment to service large container vessels, creating a terminal with smarter trade-enabling solutions to increase productivity and greatly enhance its service capability and quality including a 35-hectares stacking area, a direct rail access into the hinterland and a 7-hectare area dedicated to buildings and operating infrastructures.

In addition to Terminal de France (TDF), GMP operates a second site, the Terminaux Nord, consisting of two wharves (the Quai de l'Europe and the Quai des Amériques).
