Mombasa's second box terminal construction on schedule

  30.04.2013    

Construction of Mombasa's second container terminal is on schedule and is now 25 per cent complete, according to the Kenya Ports Authority.
Sand filling is 70 per cent done and land reclamation is 30 per cent complete, according to a report in the port authority's magazine Bandari.
Also underway is the casting of concrete blocks for the smaller 230-metre No 20 berth, say project engineers, adding that the two other berths, one of 320 metres and the other of 350 metres, will have a 1.2 million TEU annual capacity, capable of handling panamax ships of 60,000 deadweight tonnes or 4,600 TEU.
The new terminal located at the west of Kipevu will on completion transform Mombasa into a hub port in the region, said the report.
The project has been financed through bilateral soft loans from the Japan International Co-operation Agency (JICA). Phase 1 will have a 450,000-TEU annual capacity.
Other related works include the extension of the railway that serves the Mombasa container terminal, building a new access road and installation of new buoys and markers for shipping channels, the report said.
