Posted on September 9, 2015

Mozambique’s Minister of Transport and Communications Carlos Mesquita has said the dredging of the port of Quelimane, in the central province of Zambezia, is due to begin later in September and will last until January 2016.Once the work is completed around 320,000 cubic metres of sediment are expected to have been removed, Mesquita announced in the port city of Beira on Saturday.

He said dredging had not taken place for at least five years in the port and that following the work the port should have an overall depth of 5 metres.

According to Mesquita, the port of Maputo had increased from 9 to 14 metres deep, while the port of Beira, which is tidal, had reasonable conditions for berthing ships, with an average depth of 8 metres along its access channel.
