Eiffage picked for Sierra Leone port expansion

17 Sep 16 A consortium led by Eiffage Génie Civil has won a design-build contract to expand a container terminal in Sierra Leone.

The €47m (£40m) project for Freetown Terminal's subsidiary Bolloré Transport & Logistics involves the construction of a new 270m quay to accommodate vessels with a draught of 13m.  

Eiffage will be backed by sister company RMT, which specialises in electrical engineering and process automation, and Bellsea, a subsidiary of Belgium’s Deme group specialising in marine and dredging works.

The quay wall consists of a combi-wall system with piles and sheet-piles and reinforced concrete capping. The project will involve 260,000m³ of dredging works, 650,000m³ of land reclamation, 50,000m² of road construction, 12,000m³ of reinforced concrete and a power plant.

Work is expected to be completed within 24 months.
