The quest for port capacity, 3rd Edition

Another interesting port development in Mozambique. State-run Mozambique Ports and Railways company (CFM) has received the go-ahead for the building of a new deep-water port to handle at least 50 million tonnes of heavy cargo per year. The port will be built in the district of Matutuine, on the coast of the southern province of Maputo and is expected to harbour vessels with a cargo capacity of up to 300,000 tonnes each. The port will be used to distribute fuel from the 350,000 barrels-per-day refinery to be built in the same area, and to export coal from Botswana and South Africa.  More detail via MiningMx
