September 21, 2021 – Handy Heed, the main contractor of the City of Mount Vema project announced on Monday that it has officially started to work on construction of sections of the Port of Mount Vema.
The company will now start moving work from the drawing boards to field work to find locations to build sections of the port, as well as procurement of materials, goods and services needed for construction.
The company is also expanding its invitation to find consultants in more countries, including people and companies with unique expertise in maritime projects, offshore projects, as well as specialist freight companies with the means to deliver direct to Mount Vema where floating structures will be used as provisional port until the construction of the Port of Mount Vema is completed.
Handy Deed is also looking for companies with facilities or sites in either South Africa, Namibia, Angola, Argentina, Uruguay, or Brazil, which can be used for the production of moulds to build precast concrete to be delivered to Mount Vema.
When completed, the Port of Mount Vema will be among the few deep-water ports in the world, capable of handling ships of any size and handle every kind of traffic, with port of call services which will also be provided where cargo ships may take on supplies or fuel, as well as unloading and loading cargo.
