The delivery of this equipment comes just a few weeks before the launch of operations at the new port of Tibar Bay, scheduled for September 30. This equipment will be dedicated to handling operations and the storage of containers within the terminal. The pilot boat will be used by the Timor Port teams to berth ships.
"Timor Port is continuing its investment programme to support the growth of the timorese economy. We now have the necessary equipment to start our operations and provide our customers with high level services in accordance with international standards", said Laurent Palayer, General Manager of Timor Port.
"We are proud to have been selected to take part in this ambitious project which is also the first public-private partnership in the country. This new infrastructure built in compliance with environmental standards incorporates the latest innovations to achieve a level of productivity and performance worthy of the largest ports in the world," said Olivier De Noray, Managing Director of Ports and Terminals at Bolloré Ports.
The Tibar Bay deepwater port construction project was designed from the outset to take into account environmental issues. It meets each of the 8 pillars defined by the Green Terminal label, a labelling process launched by Bolloré Ports to reduce the carbon footprint of its activities. Validated by Bureau Veritas, the label covers all possible fields of action: construction of infrastructures, acquisition of electrical equipment, deployment of digital solutions, collection, recovery and recycling of waste, etc.
