Expansion of Port Victoria to Start in Late 2017

Seychelles Port Authority recently unveiled plans for the expansion and modernization of Port Victoria.

The existing quay of Port Victoria, currently 270 meters long, will be extended an additional 330 meters and will be able to accommodate two boats measuring up to 250 meters in length at the same time, reported Seychelles News Agency.

The chief executive of the Seychelles Port Authority, Andre Cisseau, told SNA that the expansion follows a decision by the authority and the government to ensure that Seychelles remain the favorable port of call in the region.

The project will cost around $107 million and is expected to start in late 2017 with the completion set for 2021.

According to the port officials, the extension project will comprise five phases and will start once the feasibility study is completed.
