MAPUTO PORT SET TO COMPLETE BERTH REHAB PROJECT LATER THIS YEAR

It has been reported in FTW Online that the Mozambican port of Maputo, which handled a record 19.5 million tonnes of cargo last year, expects to see its cargo handling capacity grow to 26.5 million tonnes after it completes the rehabilitation of berths 6, 7, 8 and 9 in the latter half of the year.

According to a spokesperson for the Maputo Port Development Company (MPDC) – which holds the concession to operate the port of Maputo – the berth rehabilitation project will create berths with a draught of up to 15 metres and will improve the occupancy rate of berths by creating a larger mooring area.
