Massive Future Opportunities
R 10bn boost for SA's Saldanha Bay.
A R 9.65-billion investment in infrastructure projects at Saldanha Bay, on South Africa's West Coast, was announced by the Transnet National Ports Authority on Monday.
TNPA, a division of state-owned entity Transnet, is mandated to control and manage all eight commercial ports on South Africa's 2 954km of coastline.
The project falls under the government's "blue economy" plans of its Operation Phakisa initiative, announced by President Jacob Zuma in 2014. The aim of the project is to clear infrastructure bottlenecks that may be constraining economic growth.
The 330ha Saldanha Bay industrial development zone was designated in 2013 as a zone dedicated to serving the oil and gas industry. It has attracted strong interest, mainly from fabricators.
Saldanha Bay supports the export of the iron-ore mined in the Northern Cape Province, which currently stands at around 57-million tons a year.Saldanha Bay IDZ boost for jobs, growth.
Willem Roux, Saldanha Bay port manager, told a press conference on Monday that the TNPA sees an opportunity in serving the oil rigs operating on the west and east coasts of Africa, Business Day reported. Roux said about 120 rigs passed South Africa's coast every year.
"We know if we do not use this opportunity now to capture this market, other ports in the southern hemisphere will gear themselves to capture it," the newspaper quoted him as saying.
The TNPA has issued tenders to invite public-private sector participation in the projects. According to Business Day, these include:
The TNPA said the projects would create an estimated 6 300 new direct JOBS and 25 200 new indirect JOBS, contributing an estimated R 4.74-billion to South Africa's gross domestic product. The project is due to be completed by January 2018.
