Ports dominate maritime-related procurement
AFRICA: The port sector has dominated public maritime procurement on the continent during the first half of 2021.
Just over 40 percent of the maritime tenders published by Maritime Review have been issued by African port authorities. These exclude calls for quotations for general maintenance of equipment.
Feasibility studies and the need for maritime consultants feature high on the scope of work required by port authorities. These include studies for the development of new ports; environmental studies as well as studies for port expansion projects.
Ports also require drydocking of harbour craft, new terminal equipment, lighting, aids to navigation equipment and other general maritime equipment including lifesaving equipment and training.
Port authorities that have featured strongly include Transnet National Ports Authority (and Port Terminals), Kenya Ports Authority, Mauritius Port Authority and Moroccan Port Authority.
These and other tenders are published on a weekly basis by Maritime Review. Subscribers have access to bid documents and other information such as deadline date and qualification meetings. You can subscribe to receive these notifications direct to your mailbox now!
