SMEC South Africa has been awarded the EPCM (Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Management) contract for the development of a white oil products storage terminal at Port Dukem, Ethiopia.

The 240,000 cbm facility will be the biggest in the country. 

It will also be the first in the country to store and handle aviation fuel, while being able to accommodate refined petroleum; white products receipt; storage and distribution (comprising product storage tanks, tank truck and rail wagon receipt facility, and tank truck loading gantry with allied piping/automation); and other related facilities.

The development will take place in two stages:
