The National Institute for Hydrography and Navigation of Mozambique, which is responsible for ensuring navigational safety on national port access channels, will spend US$3.5 million on a “substantial intervention” in signage at the port of Maputo, according to daily newspaper Noticias.

The work is intended to give greater dynamism to the port of Maputo, which in recent times has seen an increase in traffic, thanks to the various investments made to improve its performance, namely by deepening the access channel.

The work will cover the entire port access channel, comprising the northern channels, namely Xefina, Polana, Catembe and the Matola Channel, and aims to make access to the port fast and secure, improving its competitiveness in the region.

The investment was used to buy 41 floating buoys, with a monitoring system, equipment with technological facilities for detection and rapid troubleshooting, and allowing for communication with modern ships.

On 5 June, a ship carrying more than 100,000 tonnes of cargo sailed from the port of Maputo to China, marking a new era in the port’s services after dredging work in 2017, which created the conditions to receive and regularly load large ships. - Macauhub
