VIDEO: Expanding the Freetown Container Terminal
Snijder, a Dutch company that specializes in hiring out earthmoving equipment and concomitant technical services, has just released a video of the Freetown Terminal Extension Project.
The Freetown Terminal, operated by the French group Bolloré Transport & Logistics, is undergoing an expansion program that calls for the construction of a new 270 meter quay to accommodate vessels with a draft of 13 meters.
This 47 million euros expansion contract was awarded to a consortium led by the Belgian dredging, environmental and marine engineering group DEME, the French construction group Eiffage and Eiffage’s subsidiary RMT Clemessy.
DEME’s part of the contract included the soil improvement, reclamation and compaction works, as well as the deepening of the existing and future container berths.
Works on the Freetown Terminal Extension Project started back in September 2016 and are expected to be completed this summer.
