CHEC has recently won the bid for the channel dredging project of Port of Douala in Cameroon, with a contract value of some 28 million euros and a construction period of 24 months.
This is the first project signed by the Central Africa Regional Management Center in 2014.
As Cameroon’s largest port and an estuary port, Port of Douala needs to be maintained and dredged annually to ensure the channel’s navigable depth.
The work was previously undertaken by world-famous dredging companies like Jan De Nul.
The owner released an announcement of public tender on October 9, 2013, attracting world-class dredging companies like Jan De Nul, Boskalis and Dredging International.
The successful bid marks that CHEC has successfully entered the Cameroonian dredging market and plays a significant role in consolidating CHEC’s position in the Cameroonian water transport market.
