The remaining €750m has been allocated to construct a 3m teu capacity box terminal at Nador, situated near to the Spanish enclave of Melilla.

Other new facilities will allow 25m tons of petroleum to be operated, seven million tons of coal and three million tons of general cargo. New infrastructure will be constructed by the publicly-owned company Nador West Med.
