Project description

EBRD is considering a sovereign guaranteed loan of up to EUR 200 million to the Société Nador West Med (NWM) for infrastructure development at the new Nador West Med Port in Morocco (the “Project”).  The loan will be used for construction of the port infrastructure (breakwaters, quays, dredging, etc) which will be used by private concessionaires for commercial handling activities.
 
The Government of Morocco (GoM) is developing a major new port and industrial complex around 30km from the town of Nador, on Morocco’s Mediterranean coast.   The proposed project is part of a wider development plan for the Nador region and will directly contribute to the reduction of regional disparities and support the economic development of the Orientale Region, as well as improving regional access to infrastructure.  This development which will be undertaken  by NWM will involve a mixed cargo port including terminals for containers, hydrocarbons, bulk (including coal) and Ro-Ro as well as a service quay and an industrial investment zone designed to attract international investors, comprising a 1,500 ha Free Zone and an additional 2,500 ha area outside the Free Zone. 
 
The project has been structured to meet the 2014 Environmental and Social Policy.
 
There is a Project Summary Document for this ESA.
