A Bulk Grain Terminal: enabling farmers to collectively store their produce in clean, dry conditions.

This state-of-the-art bulk grain terminal being built in the port of Nacala is expected to do a lot more than enable farmers to collectively store their produce in clean, dry conditions. The new terminal will drastically reduce vessel turnaround and docking downtimes, more than doubling Mozambique’s grain import and export capacity.

The two-phase turnkey project begins with a grain terminal with a discharge capacity of 300 tons per hour, a storage capacity of 40,000 tons and packaging facilities. The second phase, to be developed during the third year of operations, will include the construction of a bulk fertilizer terminal adjacent to the grain terminal and of similar capacity.

This 25 million $ turn-key project will come to life due to a 30-year concession from Mozambique’s Northern Development Corridor (corridor de norte`) and 7-year financing from the African foreign trade bank Afriexim.
