Latest ports infrastructure opportunities unveiled

01 September 2015

Nico Walters, General Manager for strategy at Transnet Ports Authority, spoke to Concrete.TV about the Ports infrastructure plans and opportunities over the next few years in the Western Cape.

Walters mentioned that one of the opportunities in the investment of the Western Cape’s Ports infrastructure involves the liquid bulk storage to be set up at the port of Cape Town,  where a preferred bidder was identified in recent years.

The major investment currently happening in the port of Saldanha Bay is set to establish the port as an oil and gas hub looking into rigs. Also in the pipeline is an off shore oil and gas supply base which will provide for any rigs or supply for vessels.               

Further to the investment plans for the port of Saldanha is the development of the Mossgas site which will ensure the construction of a new Jetty. All the facilities put in place will offer strong investment opportunities for the private sector with the construction of these facililities expected to take up to three years.
