These facilities are part of the plan to modernise the Pointe-Noire Port. The Congo Terminal concessionary carried out the extension and reconstruction work on the 800 linear metres of the G dock and in parallel constructed the 700 linear metres of the D dock.
Since 2009, Congo Terminal has already invested FCFA 250 billion (€400 million) in the development of infrastructure, the acquisition of stevedoring equipment and the installation of a high-performance operating system. Through these investments, the Pointe-Noire Port is now able to welcome ships of over 14,000 twenty-foot equivalent (TEU) and has attained an average productivity rate of over 60 movements an hour, as well as an average dock waiting time for ships of slightly under 24 hours. In 2019, Congo Terminal also set a new performance record with 920,000 TEU containers handled.
