Nacala port dredging contract awarded

Penta-Ocean Construction and Toa Corporation have won a three-year contract in Mozambique for the construction of facilities at Nacala Port.

The Republic of Mozambique’s Ministry of Transport said phase one and two of the US$238 million project will include dredging 260,000 cubic metres of material from the access channel.

The port area will also be widened by land reclamation using 214,600 cubic metres of soil fill to accommodate a new container terminal, access road and port railway.

The expansion at the 40-year-old port will increase the port’s capacity to handle cargo by constructing a dedicated container terminal with 14-metre deep quay wall extending up to 400 metres. It will be financed by ODA Loan of Japan.
