LUANDA, Angola– Porto de Caio has begun its initial construction phase of a new deepwater port in Angola.

The initial phase of construction, awarded to Franki Africa Sucursal Angola, involves the mobilization of equipment delivered from Europe to drill 20 to 60 seabed boreholes to gather information critical to the foundation of the port.

A geotechnical barge will use a jacking system to drill the holes. The work is estimated to be completed in eight to 10 weeks.

This work is an important step to completing the first berth of the new port in the 3Q 2017, said Porto de Caio.
