Background history

In 1955, the city of Nador featured a small harbor built in the large lagoon called the Mar Chica and connected to the Mediterranean by a canal. The port, with a length of 2500 m, was built to promote import-export activities (mainly staples and construction materials) using 300-tonne payload motorboats and a draught of less than 3 meters.

Construction of the new deepwater port of Nador-Beni Ensar began in January 1975 with the primary aim of serving the Oriental region, the main market, and the Sonasid-Seferif steel-manufacturing complex of Nador. The port of Nador has been operating part-time since 1978. That same year, the port management was entrusted to RAPC. The port of Nador is currently experiencing rapid development, especially in passenger traffic.
