Name of the Project
Pier 2 North Quay project reconstruction, deepening and lengthening.

Location
Durban Container Terminal, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.

Project Owner/s
Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA).

Project Description
The TNPA has issued a tender for the reconstruction, deepening and lengthening of three berths at the Pier 2 North Quay.

The five-year project involves deepening berths 203, 204 and 205, including the basin and approach channel, from 12.8 m to 16.5 m.

The deepening project will also enable vessels requiring a draft deeper than 12.2 m to enter the port at any time, which the TNPA says will reduce the queue of vessels waiting at anchorage until high tide.

The project will also increase the terminal’s berth length from 914 m to 1 210 m – a length sufficient to accommodate three Super Post Panamax vessels – each 350 m in length and requiring a draft of 14.5 m – simultaneously.

The request for proposal documents have been published online along with a bid-submission deadline of 16:00 on March 29, 2024.
