Tibar Bay Port

Tibar Bay Port

EDGE Advanced

The Bolloré Group was chosen following an international call for tenders, to build and operate the future deep sea port of Dili. It selected China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC) to construct the port of Tibar to the west of Dili, the capital of Timor-Leste. The Group won the 30-year concession in June 2016 as part of a public-private partnership, the first in Timor-Leste. The project represents a total cost of $490 million over a period of 30 years, ranking as the largest ever to be completed in Timor-Leste with a private partner.

This port platform, which meets international standards, will be equipped with the most modern container handling and general cargo equipment, which will enable container ships of more than 7,000 TEUs to be operated. In addition to the high environmental standards of the future terminal, the new Port is part of the Green Terminal certification process designed to reduce the carbon footprint of operations.

Tibar Bay Port has received a Preliminary EDGE Advanced Certificate from Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI).
