Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA) confirms that it was informed of the challenges experienced by Oiltanking Grindrod Calulo (Pty) Ltd (OTGC) to execute the project to complete the development of a Liquid Bulk Terminal in the Port of Ngqura, due to insufficient customer commitment. The facility is intended to service fuel importers in the Nelson Mandela Bay region and to replace the existing Tank Farm in the Port of Port Elizabeth.
TNPA committed to deliver enabling infrastructure to facilitate and enable the development of a Liquid Bulk Terminal in the Port of Ngqura. To date, TNPA has completed all the design work and all major construction work is in progress and scheduled to be completed by September 2020.
TNPA is currently engaging OTGC, the PE oil companies, stakeholders and all the relevant authorities to formulate and implement a way forward.
