(BOLLORE ) – Congo Terminal, a Bolloré Ports subsidiary, continues to upgrade the Port of Pointe-Noire and has just achieved a new milestone with the completion of the extension works of the yard surface area of dock D. The works which began a year ago and had a price tag of 3 billion CFA francs (approximately €5 million), have increased the storage area by 3.5 hectares and will support additional volumes after a record year by Congo Terminal with more than one million containers handled.
This new project follows the reconstruction in 2017 of 700 linear metres of dock D and a yard of 3 hectares. Engineered by a local company, these works are part of an investment plan designed to make the Pointe-Noire deep water port an oceanside doorway to Africa. Bolloré Ports has invested more than 250 billion CFA francs (€400 million) since 2009 to upgrade the container terminal’s infrastructure and equipment. These efforts have considerably improved its productivity.
