Durban’s Maydon Wharf Project Reaches New Milestone

Transnet National Ports Authority’s (TNPA) six-berth reconstruction project at the Maydon Wharf Precinct in the Port of Durban has reached a milestone, with berth 13 and 14 now deeper and safer for bigger ships calling at the port.

The contract for reconstruction and deepening of six Maydon Wharf Berths 1-4, 13 and 14 was awarded to Stefanutti Stocks AXSYS joint venture.

Once completed, the berths will have a draught of 14.5 meters enabling them to handle vessels with draughts up to 13 meters. However, the Maydon Wharf access channel will still need to be deepened to enable deeper draught vessels to sail in fully laden, TNPA said.

The reconstruction of all six berths is expected to be completed by 2018.

Constructed more than 90 years ago, the Maydon Wharf Precinct is one of the oldest cargo terminals and is the largest breakbulk and dry bulk handling precinct in the Port of Durban covering 120 hectares of the port land.
