Chinese firm wins bid to build new Israeli port

Cairo: Israel has selected a subsidiary of China Harbour Engineering Company to build a $950 m port in southern Ashdod on Israel’s Mediterranean coast.

Under the terms of the tender, the Chinese company will build new docks, warehouses and jetties, extending deep-water berthing capacities at the site, the Israel Ports Company said in a statement.

Israel also plans a second port further north in the city of Haifa but has not yet awarded the contract to build it.  [25/06/14]
