Tanzania Ports Authority (TPA) has entered into an agreement with China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC) to expand the Dar es Salaam port.

Under the contract, signed on June 10, the Chinese company will design and construct a roll-on, roll-off (ro-ro) terminal at Dar es Salaam, extend the port terminal, and deepen and strengthen the port’s berths 1 through 7.

The project is reportedly worth around USD 154 million. Local media informed that the scope of work would be implemented in the next three years.

TPA said that the contract is a part of the port’s efforts to increase its anual handling capacity to about 28 million tonnes by 2020 and prepare the port to welcome bigger containerships.
