Vital new port to serve Nigerian trade zone

The Lagos Free Trade Zone, a new industrial and logistics hub for the West Africa region, is situated 60 kilometers east of Lagos, Nigeria. The trade zone embraces diverse manufacturing interests, linked by road, sea and air in Africa’s most populous nation.

Challenge
A world-class deep-water seaport is needed as a key component of the 220-hectare Lagos Free Trade Zone. The port, located in the Gulf of Guinea, will serve as an efficient gateway for containerized, dry and liquid bulk cargo vessels.

Solution
The Tolaram Group of Singapore retained Louis Berger as project management consultant for the design and construction of a new seaport in Nigeria called Lekki Port. The project includes design, construction and commissioning of all marine and landside port facilities, including dredging.

When completed, the 90-hectare port will facilitate investments and trade in Nigeria. Lekki Port features will include:

  • Capacity to serve container vessels of up to 8,000 twenty-foot equivalent units as well as dry bulk vessels, with potential future development of berths for liquid bulk cargo vessels.
  • A 1,500-meter quay wall, with cargo-handling cranes and other equipment.
  • A 1,500-meter breakwater and 6-kilometer-long approach channel with a 14.5-meter depth.
