Port of Pemba Invests in New Ore Handling Equipment

The Portos e Caminhos de Ferro de Moçambique (CFM) company has revealed that it is investing in new equipment to help handle cargo at the port of Pemba, Cabo Delgado province, pointing out that mobile hoppers have already been acquired for unloading various types of ore, as well as clinker.

According to the company’s regional director, Emídio Bata, quoted on Tuesday (26) by the newspaper Noticias, the new equipment is expected to increase the amount of clinker handled, from 60,000 to 90,000 tonnes a year, adding that the main cargoes handled by the port include wood, fuel and now graphite.

“With the acquisition of the hoppers for unloading ores and clinker, we hope to increase handling, reduce the waiting time for ships in the port from 15 to seven days, and reduce environmental pollution levels,” he explained.

Recently, the Cabo Delgado Public Prosecutor’s Office recommended that CFM improve ore unloading operations at the port of Pemba in order to mitigate pollution, especially after the city’s residents complained about pollution in some residential areas in 2022.

“We are convinced that, with the entry into operation of this new equipment, we will minimise pollution levels,” he said.
