ICTSI’s Matadi Terminal Project on Schedule

International Container Terminal Services Inc. (ICTSI’s) new terminal, located at Matadi, Democratic Republic of the Congo, is on schedule to open for business in August 2016.

The new terminal will deliver purpose-designed container handling capacity coupled with modern general cargo handling and storage facilities.

Matadi is situated on the left bank of the Congo River 148 km from the mouth and 8 km below the last navigable point before rapids make the river impassable. The port serves an extensive hinterland including the capital city of Kinshasa, the largest city in Central Africa.

The ICTSI Congo Terminal will initially commence operations in August 2016, with one berth. Full delivery of the phase one, incorporating a second berth and total quay line of 350m will be by November 2016. Depth alongside the quay will be 12m at all times, offering the ability to serve Panamax, Handymax and Wafmax vessels.

As part of the overall development plan, ICTSI is also actively investigating the impact and opportunities for dredging the river in steps from 7.3m to 9.1m, 11m and eventually possibly even 12m.

Construction activity to date at the terminal site, has seen the completion of the access road, commencement of piling for the quay and the start of works on the yard area and terminal building and gates.

Based on demand, ICTSI also has the option to immediately implement the phase two of the development, providing an additional 350m of quay line and supporting yard area.
