The LAPSSET Corridor Development Authority (LCDA) has announced that the first of the proposed 32 berths at the Kenya’s Lamu Port is now 100% complete.

The Lamu Port development project – part the Lamu Port-South Sudan-Ethiopia Transport Corridor – represents a government initiative to develop a second deep sea port along the Kenyan coast.

The construction of the first three berths – out of the 32 expected – started with the dredging operations back in December 2016.

The $449 million contract for the first three berths was awarded to China Communications Construction Company Limited (CCCC) back in 2015.

According to the latest LAPSSET’s release, berth 2 and 3 will be completed by December 2020.

The berths have a 400m key length and a depth 17.5-18m along a distance of 6000m.

Upon completion, Lamu Port will be the largest deep sea port with the highest transshipment capability in the East Coast of Africa.
