15 June 2015

The first phase for construction of the Deepwater Port of Cabinda was recently launched.

Brian Fuggle, CEO of Caio Port, said works on the early stages of the Deepwater Port of Cabinda were awarded to Franki Africa who will drill 20 to 60 35-m-deep holes.

The company will also offer significant information for the port foundation, provide a geotechnical barge, a platform of modular self-lifts with a lift system for drilling the ocean floor and all this is expected to be complete within 8 to 10 weeks.

Fuggle further noted that construction of the Deepwater Port of Cabinda was in line with the Government of Angola’s plans for national infrastructure reconstruction.

Construction work on Deepwater Port of Cabinda will have three phases which are carefully designed to ensure that the port has sustainable impacts with minimal risks to the locals and the environment.

Over 1000 direct jobs will be created and growth of business as a result of development of the port will enable more job creation.
