Port of Walvis Bay to handle massive salt consignment

December 14, 2022 911

The Namibian Ports Authority (Namport) through the Port of Walvis Bay is set to facilitate the export of a consignment of 110,900 tonnes of salt.

According to Namport, Bold Mariner – which loaded 45,000 tonnes of bulk salt – was the first of four vessels that docked at the Port last week Thursday, 8 December 2022, and sailed off in the earlier hours of Tuesday (13 December 2022) heading to its next port of call in Lagos, Nigeria.  

The Maria Da Paz and the Carlota Bolten are currently docked at the Port of Walvis Bay loading 4,500 tonnes of bagged salt and 30,700 bulk salt respectively.

Towards the end of the week, the Ports Authority is expecting to receive another vessel LILA which will load another 30,700 tonnes of bulk salt, bringing the volumes of salt consignment handled to 110,900 tonnes.

“The above achievement, among others, is due to the dedicated staff members of Namport for their unwavering commitment to rendering world class services to their clients. More than ever before Namport remains committed to making the Namibian Ports Authority the port of choice for international trade as it continues to work towards attaining its vision of being the best seaports in Africa,” the ports operator said.
