Richard estimates the additional monthly maintenance and cleaning costs on this asset, as the result of the manganese ore, to be in the region of R1600 per month.
The cost of accelerated wear and tear over the life of Richard’s asset is estimated to be: R32000.
Richard has this to say about the Manganese Ore pollution from the Port of Port Elizabeth; “It is an absolute eye sore located on a prime tourist and development location.
The pollution is chasing much needed investment and other spend opportunities away as no yachts and power-yachts want to visit our port or base their vessels here any longer.
All the necessary plans have been made years ago to relocate this terminal to the new Port of Nqura, but yet nothing has come from this.”
