Angola: Luanda port invests over US$13.8M in construction works

The Port of Luanda has invested more than USD 13.8 million, from 2017 to date, in works to improve its infrastructures, in order to improve the conditions for the port operators.

Of this amount, USD eight million were invested in the construction of a 260-meter long wharf, whose works began in 2016 and are already advanced by 90 percent, more than USD 2.8 million in dredging works, to obtain five meters deep, and more than 2.9 million in the installation of two floating ramps and their infrastructures in the sea capping zone, to a length of 47 meters.

The construction of the dock will allow the simultaneous mooring of 12 small and medium-sized vessels and two Ro-Ro – a giant freighter type for the transport of cars and other vehicles.

These data were released today by the port of Luanda, at a meeting that aimed to present the application of the port company’s adhesion to the United Nations Global Pact.

The Global Pact stands for 10 universal principles, derived from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Labor Organization Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development and the United Nations Convention against Corruption.

The United Nations Global Pact builds its principles on human rights, labor, and the environment.
