Fuel unloading and layover facility – Pepel, Sierra Leone
This design and construct contract for a fuel and layover facility comprised the construction of five mooring dolphins, four breasting dolphins with fenders, a concrete platform, 220-metre walkways and a 160-metre access bridge.
The new jetty is part of the ongoing rehabilitation of African Mineral’s loading facility for iron ore. The jetty enables client African Minerals Limited to increase the export of iron ore by some 20% per day. In addition to feeding the chain of transport, the jetty will be used for the import of diesel for mining and exporting facilities.
