The China Communications Construction Company (CCCC) has been contracted to build the Sh40 billion ($395.8m) Kipevu Oil Terminal (KOT) at the Port of Mombasa.
The new terminal will be built for the discharge of fuel to the tanks owned by the Kenya Pipeline Company and other oil companies. The terminal will have the capacity to handle four vessels of up to 100,000 dwt.
Mombasa port currently has only two oil terminals that are ageing and too small to handle large quantities of imported oil and gas.
“The KOT will supplement the two facilities at Shimanzi and the old Kipevu terminal,” Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) acting Managing Director Daniel Manduku said.
