Rehabilitation of the wharf in Kpémé
28 December 2017 - New contracts - Togo
A joint venture composed of Sogea-Satom, LSE (VINCI Construction International Network) and Freyssinet (VINCI Construction) has won the contract for the rehabilitation of the wharf in Kpémé, to the east of Lomé.
Operational since 1961, this 1,000 m-long steel wharf is an important installation for phosphate mining company SNPT (Société Nouvelle des Phosphates du Togo), which uses it to load the ore onto bulk carriers.
The works will notably involve rehabilitating the mechanical and electrical elements needed for the safe operation of the loading equipment and the connection to the processing plant (seawater pipe). They will also include conservation and protection work on the structure of the loading facilities (three docks with their foundation piles, two feeders, connecting bridges and a pump barge).
Site installation began in late September; the works, lasting 24 months, will start in January 2018.
