‘Dredging and Port Expansion Africa’ Approaches

Now in its 4th year, Dredging and Port Expansion Africa will take place on 27–29 January 2015, in Durban, South Africa.

Africa’s leading event focused on partnerships for new projects, port accessibility and congestion management will provide you with strategies on how to develop your ports and terminals and decrease the cost of doing business in Africa,” the officials announced.

With participation from high-level executives this is a must attend event for developing economic growth through increased investment in port infrastructure.

Background

Africa is experiencing a significant increase in trade with growing volumes of cargo at all African ports. An expected surge is forcing port authorities and operators to increase capacity, analyse operations to increase efficiency and employ measures to allow bigger ships into their ports.

With port development in Africa projected to grow strongly to meet this demand, new projects are being announced creating exceptional maritime business opportunities as ports strive to deliver world class service, facilities and efficiencies.

Reconfiguring port layout, increasing berths at existing ports and conducting dredging more often, have been other strategies that numerous ports have employed to meet this need.
