The coal port terminal is at Nacala Bay in the north of the country. The Arcadis Logos team signed the US$47m (£27m) contract with Vale Logística África Limitada and construction is due to take 36 months.
Work will include consulting services for project planning and control, detail design coordination, procurement support and construction coordination & supervision, including safety and environmental issues.
The project is part of work to double production capacity at the Vale Moatize coal mine. Once in operation, the Nacala coal port will feature 18 million tonnes per year of installed capacity, a 29km long access railway, an onshore coal stockyard and an offshore terminal.
Arcadis Logos is part of the consortium providing consulting services, and which further includes Consulgal Consultores de Engenharia e Gestão from Portugal and local consultant Secon Serviços de Engenharia e Consultores. It is expected that a team of 115 people will be working at the site at the peak of the construction phase.
