The Governor of Edo State, Mr Godwin Obaseki, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with China Harbor Engineering Company Limited (CHEC) for the development of the Gelegele Seaport and other transport infrastructure in the state.

The Gelegele project will include the development of the seaport that will serve as the gateway for exporting manufactured goods from the Benin Industrial Park under construction and other manufacturing companies in the region.

The latest agreement is the result of series of engagements between the governor and the CHEC chairman, Mr Lin Yichong, which started last year.

Some of the projects the Chinese company is handling include the construction-dredging-excavation for waterfront development in Yanbu, southwest Saudi Arabia and on the northern shore of the Red Sea as well as the Lagos moles repair project, being executed by the Nigeria Port Authority.

Others are the Offshore Approach Light Structure in New Doha International Airport, which includes three terminal bridges and three temporary steel bridges and the Ma’aden Infrastructure Project Port Design and Construction, owned by the Saudi Arabian Mining Company, amongst others.
