    The video explains everything.

    Garacad port will be Somalia's largest and deepest port. It will be able to hold 2 big ships and 8 boats at a time. It will also receive containers.

    Port depths across the country:
    Bosaso: 6.7 m
    Mogadishu: 9 m
    Kismayo: 9 m
    Berbera: 10-11 m
    Garacad: 11.5 m​

    This is made possible because of Garacad's ideal spot. The rocks needed to make the port are only 1 km away. It also has natural depth so underwater digging won't be necessary. Because of massive cost saving advantages like this, Garacad will be Somalia's least expensive port.

    So far 3 phases have been completed. We are on phase 4 which is when they start constructing in the water.

    Ma sha Allah. I am going to invest heavy when the port is constructed. I will focus on Ethiopia in regards to shipping and transportation. Big money inshaallah

    No the only reason we use those old style boats in bosaso is because big contIner ships can't come to bosaso because our port is not deep enough. If garacad port is deep enough why would they even entertain the notion of allowing those small ships to dock their. They should ban them. That's just my opinion

    I hope this project inspires other communities in Somalia to start major infrastructure projects.

    We don't need external funding or aid, we just need to hire them to build our land and also include clauses where they have to hire and train locals if they want to win the contract.

    For instance, in Oil rich Arab countries, companies have to hire a certain percentage of locals if they want to stay.

    They also don't allow foreigners to own land, they can only lease it for a certain number of years.

    Of course all Somalis will have the same access to the port.
    Forget Somalis, other nations will use the port.
