Bolloré Ports will, in effect, increase the size of the Freetown Terminal, with a new deep-water 270m wharf (-13m), accompanied by 3.5 hectares of new storage space, which will increase the total capacity of the container terminal to 750,000 TEUs. In particular, new modern equipment - two dockside gantries and three additional Rubber-Tired Gantries - will be installed in the Freetown Terminal. The objective: to double the productivity of the container terminal within the next four years. The new wharf will be operational within three years from the completion of the work, and will be equipped with modern handling equipment.
All of these investments, infrastructure and equipments, totaling some $120 million, will be entirely financed by the Bolloré Group
