Rehabilitation of Port of Quelimane, Mozambique

The port is the maritime transport connection to Maputo, South Africa and Europe.

The main quay structure, including founda-tion piles of reinforced concrete, was constructed in 1953 and extended in 1968. The overall quay length is about 210 m which is to be rehabilitated.

  • The existent quay structure shall be strengthened to meet the loads of the modern cargo handling equipment,
  • A complete and independent fendering system shall be installed in front of the quay line,
  • The dredging depth in front of the berths shall be re-established,
  • Container storage area behind the main berth shall be developed and paved, including facilities for reefer containers,
  • The same applies for the remaining open storage areas,
  • New entrance/outlet gate with fencing for the port shall be provided, including an
  • efficient road system within the port area,
  • Supply systems for electric power and water shall be completely rehabilitated,
  • The Port Administration Building shall be modernised and rehabilitated.
