Namibian Ports Authority’s new N$4.2 billion container terminal at the Port of Walvis Bay has become fully operational since 24 August 2019. 

Immanuel Tino !Hanabeb, Namports’ executive: commercial, said that the company looks forward to fully utilising the newly commissioned terminal, along with the cruise passenger liner jetty, Albatros, which is scheduled to call the Port of Walvis Bay at Berth 9 on 18 October 2019. It will be the first ever passenger liner to make use of the new state of the art terminal, he added.

Last week, Dr. Gerd Müller, German Federal Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development, paid a courtesy call on Namports.

Müller, who was on an official visit to Namibia in response to an invitation extended to him by President Hage. G. Geingob, enjoyed a tour of the Port of Walvis Bay.

During a brief interview Müller said, “We’re interested in developing export and cooperation, in particular cooperation with our ports in Hamburg and Bremen. We’re thinking about vocational training and obviously using that training to generate more business.”

His visit to Namibia was aimed at strengthening bilateral relations between Namibia and Germany.
