The chief executive of the Ivory Coast’s Autonomous Port of Abidjan – le Port Autonome d’Abidjan (PAA) - has said that expansion work at the port, once completed, will allow it to accommodate vessels holding 14,000 teu.
According to French daily press, an unsuccessful bidder in the recent round of bidding for the second container terminal in Abidjan is contesting the concession granted to the consortium comprising of APM Terminals, Bollore and Bouyges.
The African ports of Abidjan and San Pedro in Ivory Coast are thought to be the first to deny entry to vessels arriving from a country which is experiencing an outbreak of Ebola.
Ebola concerns continue as more ports in Africa have issued bans against affected vessels, and now South American ports are following in their footsteps.
