Its teams of experts, which have historically been based out of Africa, are able to offer highly reliable services for international partners and customers.

The NCT Necotrans Group is delighted to announce that the Conakry container terminal concession has been awarded to its subsidiary Getma International. The concession agreement between the Guinean government and Getma International has been signed for a 25-year period. It covers the management, maintenance, extension and equipping of the Conakry container terminal by STCC (“Société du Terminal à Conteneurs de Conakry”, a subsidiary of Getma International and its representative for the concession). Now a partner for Guinea's long-term development, STCC is committed alongside the State to developing a major infrastructure: the Port of Conakry. This project represents an investment of over 100 million euros and will involve three main phases: the renovation of the existing structures, the extension of the existing terminal by 120,000 sqm, and the equipping of the entire facility.

The first phase of the project began on June 1, 2009 and is scheduled to be completed in spring 2010. It involves two main stages:

Renovation of the existing terminal*:

The NCT Necotrans Group teams have deployed more than 35 pieces of handling equipment on the terminal, including two Gottwald mobile cranes. These new modern facilities will allow an improvement of the terminal’s performances. Alongside the deployment of this equipment, renovation work is being carried out: painting, cleaning, repair and equipping of the structures (renovation of the current storage area). A new computerized container management system has also been put in place.
Development of a storage platform:
To cope with growing traffic, with a 27% increase in the number of TEUs between 2007 and 2008**, a new storage platform has been developed outside of the port. This platform makes it possible to store empty containers on a 1.1 hectare yard, representing a ground capacity of 270 TEUs and a total capacity of 1,300 TEUs.

The second phase of the project will run through to 2013, extending the terminal with 300 meters of quay and 12 hectares of additional container yard. Alongside this extension, the draught will be increased to 13 meters, while two gantry cranes and a dozen RTG units (mobile gantry cranes) will be set up.

An optional investment program covers the construction of a further 135 metres of quay for feedering and transshipment.

Under the concession agreement, fees will be paid on several levels:

- The entry fee or operating fee, representing 15 million euros, in return for the exclusive concession,

- The fixed annual fee for occupancy of the port area,

- The variable fee paid monthly based on the volumes of containers handled.

“Guinea has major potential in many areas, from water to electricity. Today, there are real challenges that can be met thanks to a trust-based relationship between the government and its operators. The NCT Necotrans Group is proud to be taking part in its projects, in this way becoming a partner for the country's long-term development. We believe in Guinea-Conakry!”

says Abdel Aziz Thiam, Chairman of the board of STCC.


* The current terminal is 250 metres long, with a 10.50 metres draught and 7 hectare container yard.

** Traffic on the Conakry port terminal: 87,013 TEUs for 2007 and 110,600 TEUs for 2008.

“The NCT Necotrans Group is proud to become a partner for the country's long-term development. We believe in Guinea-Conakry!”
