Limassol Port

The Limassol Port  is situated on the outskirts of the country’s second main city in terms of population and economic significance. It is the largest port in Cyprus, serving most of the island’s seaborne cargo and passenger traffic. It handles two thirds of the total container traffic locally generated and transhipment as well as the entire volume  of grain imports. Similarly, over 90% of the country’s passenger traffic is presently served by this port.

As a container port, Limassol provides two terminals with six gantry cranes and a total annual capacity of 600.000 TEUs.The port’s new container terminal with a draft of 14 meters along the quay is a part of the first phase of the Limassol Port’s development plan scheduled to be completed by the year 2010. Limassol Port has acquired recently two new tug boats in order to assist the handling of increasing number of bigger vessels. Additional improvements of facilities at Limassol Port include the expansion of the storage capacity of its grain silo, the construction of a     significant number of dolphin berths on the south part of the basin, the upgrading of the western multi-purpose quay into a post panamax  vessel facility as well as the extension of the passenger terminal. Ιn addition to being a major container transhipment center in the Eastern Mediterranean, Limassol is also an  important cruise  linerhub for mini excursions in the region as well as a main stopover  point for international liners cruising in the area.
