Port of Maputo Recognized as the Biggest Investor in Infrastructure

The Port of Maputo recently received an award for being the Biggest Investor in the Infrastructure area in Mozambique during the period 2012-2016.

The port went through an enormous transformation in the last 5 years, under the developments of the port’s Masterplan.

The biggest infrastructure milestones were the two channel deepening projects (the first in 2011 and the last in 2016), the construction of an intermodal container depot terminal and the expansion of four terminals (car terminal, ferro terminal, Matola coal terminal and the container terminal), as well as the construction of new warehouses, rehabilitation of old ones, berth rehabilitation, etc.

The last channel deepening project, which included dredging of the 76 km long navigational channel that leads to the port, was successfully completed by Jan De Nul Group at the beginning of 2017.

The company’s cutter dredger J.F.J. De Nul, hopper dredger De Lapérouse, along with some other dredgers, delivered the project several months ahead of schedule.

According to the port, the total investment forecasted by the Masterplan is in the amount of $2 billion, of which more than 800 million have already been invested.
