China-built Lamu port to receive first ship in December

China-built Lamu port to receive first ship in December
Kenya’s Chinese-built port in the coastal island of Lamu is expected to be launched in December, the port agency said on Monday.

Daniel Manduku, managing director of Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) told Xinhua in Nairobi that the facility that was constructed by the China Communication Construction Company will receive its first ship from the Maersk Shipping line next month.

“The Lamu port will mainly be a transshipping hub for cargo destined for ports such as Dar es Salaam, Zanzibar and Maputo,” Manduku said.

Construction of the first berth has been completed and two others should be completed by the end of 2020. “The third berth will be modified to handle crude oil exports from Kenya’s northwest region,” Manduku added.
