Port Nolloth Rehabilitation Underway

Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA) has started a port infrastructure rehabilitation project at the small domestic seaport of Port Nolloth on the northwestern coast of South Africa.

The project is aimed at improving infrastructure for offshore activities and forms part of efforts to develop the country’s marine transport and manufacturing industry in line with the South African government’s Operation Phakisa initiative.

The appointed contractor, Steffanuti Stocks Marine Pty Ltd, commenced preparatory site establishment activities during August 2016.

The primary Transnet infrastructure at Port Nolloth consists of an L-shaped concrete deck on pile jetty which includes a landing quay with a length of approximately 67 meters and a usable area of 1450m².

The scope of TNPA’s work includes refurbishment of the jetty structure, refurbishment or replacement of concrete where required, refurbishment of quay infrastructure and replacement of quayside fender systems by TNPA and De Beers.

TNPA would also be undertaking revetment works to address erosion of the shore line.
