Japan to finance Mombasa box terminal

02 Aug 2009

A new container terminal is scheduled to be operational at Mombasa by 2013. A Japanese loan of $207m will fund construction costs of the facility which will be able to handle 1.2m teu. Its opening will coincide with the dredging of the access channel, which will also allow it to handle larger ships.

By the end of the expansion programme, 32 rubber-tyred gantry cranes will be operational within the terminal, together with eight Liebherr ship-to-shore cranes, (four of which have already been delivered and assembled).
