Review History: The most important of the ports in the country of Kuwait is the Port of Shuwaikh, also known as Ash Ashuwaykh. The port lies on the southern banks of the Bay of Kuwait off the Gulf of Persia. The city of Kuwait gets its electric power and water from the desalinization plant of this port. The port had about nearly 3000 people living here in the year 1985. The area of the part is a combination of rural and industrial sectors. The city has Souq al Juma, the popular markets on Friday where people haggle for carpets, clothes, material, furniture, animals, plants, new goods, used goods, antiques and souvenirs. The port handles ocean borne vessels thanks to the berths with good depth and modern facilities for containers. The port is managed and operated by the Kuwait Ports Authority. The port is the major port for commerce in the country and occupies about 320hectares on land and around 120hectares on water. The channel for navigation inside the Bay of Kuwait was dredged to increase the depth to about 8.5m with the length at 8km. The port can handle vessels of nearly 7.5m draft during any tide. Even during high tide, the vessels can easily enter this port a draft of about 9.5m and easily leave the port too.
