The public tender to build a cruise terminal in the Cape Verdean city of Mindelo on the island of São Vicente, will be launched within “a few weeks,” said the chairman of Enapor – Portos de Cabo Verde on Thursday.
Jorge Mauricio was speaking at the opening ceremony in Mindelo of the technical sessions as part of the Fair of Economic Activities Connected to the Sea – Expomar, which began on Thursday.
Work on the “Mindelo Cruise Terminal” will begin, “at the latest in the first quarter of 2019,” he noted, quoted by the Inforpress news agency.
“We are already in a position to launch the tender for works that are budgeted at 30 million euros and that will change the city of Mindelo,” said Mauricio.
The chairman of Enapor also announced that another project is underway to “give shape” to the management model and the 2018/2030 strategic plan, which involves the construction of logistics centres in all ports in Cabo Verde (Cape Verde).
This second project, whose economic feasibility study has been completed, he said, is budgeted at 12 million euros and will allow Cabo Verde to take a qualitative leap, moving from a traditional port system to a more modern system.
