Three new terminals are to be built at the French port

France's Port of Le Havre and port network Haropa Port are to invest €90 million ($97.7 million) to develop its cruise terminals at Pointe de Floride.

Three new terminals will be constructed at the port. Two new buildings will be built on the South Quay, while two existing hangars will be entirely renovated and connected to create a single new facility. The North Terminal opposite the city centre will also be updated as part of the project.

Works have already begun to prepare for the construction project, whch will include stabilising and renovating the quays and creating new sea defences. In addition, the port is constructing covered gangways equipped with a central podium to reduce the movement of ships due to tides.

Other developments will include the electrification of the three dedicated cruise berths, the construction of additional parking spaces and a new landscaped promenade. The main construction work will be carried out from 2023 to 2025, with work being spread out to limit disruption to cruise activity.

Following completion of the project, Le Havre aims to welcome 600,000 passengers by 2030, a more than 50 per cent increase from the current average of 350,000 to 400,000 per year.
