Federal Government of Somalia’s Rehabilitation Project Of Port Of Mogadishu


Clyde & Co advised the Federal Government of Somalia on its new 14-year concession agreement with Turkish contractor Albayrak Group for the rehabilitation and operation of the Port of Mogadishu.

The Port of Mogadishu is the most important port of Somalia and one of the most significant in East Africa. As an initiative to develop and modernise the Port, the new agreement covered several aspects, including the continuation of the Port’s exclusive terminal operations and marine services by Albayrak under a revised revenue share arrangement, a rehabilitation and investment program to safeguard the port assets and respond to increasing trade flows, and the implementation of a state-of-the-art terminal operating system to increase efficiency and speed at the port.

The Clyde & Co team advising on the project was led by Peter Kasanda (Picture), with the support of Catherine Johnston (Legal Director – London), Laura Coates (Senior Associate – London), Imani Mselle (Associate – Dar es Salaam), Amreen Ayub (Associate – Dar es Salaam), Alex Devereux (Associate – London) and Ross Jenkins (Associate – London).
