The Board of Directors of QTerminals, the recently-established operator of the first phase of Hamad Port in Qatar, has appointed Neville Bissett as the company’s first Chief Executive Officer.
 
QTerminals was established as a jointly-owned entity by Qatar Ports Management Company (Mwani Qatar) and Qatar Navigation (Milaha), with the former owning 51 percent and the latter 49 percent of the company.
 
Bissett brings to the role international experience in port management and terminal operations. Prior to joining QTerminals, he was the general manager of Ports Development Company, the master developer and Port Authority of King Abdullah Port (KAP) in Saudi Arabia; the managing director of an AP Moeller Terminals (APMT) joint venture in Africa; and with Hutchison Port Holdings, he was the chief executive officer of Alexandria International Container Terminals (AICT) and, subsequently, Tanzania International Container Terminals (TICT), among other senior management roles in the Middle East, Africa and Europe.
 
Hamad Port began operations in early October 2016. In its first phase, the port is capable of handling 2 million TEUs annually, and the number will rise to 7.5 million TEUs upon scheduled completion in 2020. Hamad Port spans 28.5 square kilometers, and allows the latest generation of vessels to berth.
