Cabinet approves US$122mn contract for Falmouth cruise terminal (Jamaica)

Jamaica's cabinet has approved a contract with Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines (RCCL) for marine works at the Falmouth cruise ship terminal in Trelawny parish, according information, telecommunications and special projects minister Daryl Vaz.

The US$122mn contract includes construction of a 760m berth, government information service JIS reported. The terminal will accommodate one giant Genesis-class RCCL cruise ship, and one smaller ship.

"The vertical works, which are the responsibility of Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, will be constructed in three phases at a cost of approximately US$105mn. Phase one is currently under construction and the estimated date of completion is May 2011," Vaz said.

The pier is now complete with tramcars and closed circuit televisions in place, the minister added.

The government approved a US$122mn loan from Danish export promotion agency EKF for the project in September 2009.
