4 new cranes to strengthen the competitiveness of the river port of Brazzaville

Brazzaville. 23 September 2019

The Congo Basin Terminal in Brazzaville (TBC), a subsidiary of Bolloré Ports, received on 06 August 2019 new handling equipment for bulk and container traffic

The Port of Brazzaville, whose container terminal is managed by Bolloré Ports received new handling equipments. These are cranes of 40 and 6 tons to strengthen the handling capacity of the river terminal of the Congolese capital.

Financed by the European Development Fund and Export Unit, partners of the Congolese Planning Ministry, these new Lieberrh brand cranes will allow the port of Brazzaville to offer a connection point between the Port of Pointe Noire, the Central African Republic and Democratic Republic of Congo. To operate this equipment, eight agents and technicians from TBC and Congo Terminal were trained by Unit Export and the Abidjan's Pan-African training center. The official commissioning of these cranes will take place in the coming weeks.

The representatives of the European Union and Unit Export emphasized the excellent quality of the cooperation and the efficiency of all of their interlocutors in the Bolloré Transport & Logistics teams. We will strive to give life to this equipment, so that they serve the Congo's economy.

Laurent Palayer, General Manager of Congo Terminal.
