The facilities are part of the plan to modernise the Pointe-Noire Port. The Congo Terminal concession has carried out the extension and reconstruction work on the 800 linear metres of the G dock and in parallel constructed the 700 linear metres of the D dock.
Since 2009, Congo Terminal has already invested EUR400 million (US$433,7 million) in the development and acquisition of stevedoring equipment and the installation of a high-performance operating system.
Pointe-Noire Port can now dock 14,000-TEU ships and has attained an average productivity rate of over 60 moves per hour as well as an average dock waiting time for ships of slightly under 24 hours, the report said. In 2019, Congo Terminal also set a new performance record with 920,000 TEU containers handled.
