The Concession Evaluation Commission announced in Luanda the extension of the submission of proposals for the concession of the Multipurpose Terminal of the Port of Luanda.
According to a note received by ANGOP, the extension of the deadline until 30 June 2020 results from the consequences of the covid-19 pandemic, including the closure of the borders worldwide.
The international call for tenders was launched on 16 December 2019, with the deadline for opening the tenders set for 30 March 2020.
The multipurpose terminal has the capacities for containerised and general cargo. The former holds around 51 percent of the cargo handling capacity and the latter 44 percent.
It also has around 610 linear metres and a depth of 12.5 metres – a great asset, from the point of view of the person in charge, because it allows ships with more than 300 metres of draught and around 400,000 20-foot containers to be received.
The terminal has an annual handling capacity of about 2.6 million tonnes per year, as the winning company manage will have the management for a period of 20 to 25 years.
