(Business in Cameroon) - The port authority informs that by the end of July 2019, a new dredging equipment for Douala-Bonabéri port platform will be received.

It is a Beaver 50 type suction dredger for water bodies and docks with assistance boats and its accessories, the port authority indicates. Soon, an Easy Dredge TSHD 3000 type suction dredger will be acquired for the port’s access channel. The renovation dredger Chantal Biya, which has been unusable for nine months now, will also be soon completed.  

The port authority reminds that the port’s dredging was costly but now, it will be monetized via dredge materials’ recycling. The costs can thus be reduced. According to estimates, the port authority will save more than XAF5 billion (amortization excluded) per year. These funds can thus be used for 3-year dredging.
