South quay in the port of Cotonou, Benin

Benin’s largest port increases its cargo ship capacity by extending the South quay.

The port of Cotonou is the “economic lung” of Benin. Its new South quay increases its capacity to accommodate cargo ships using the new container terminal.

The work consisted in dredging and beaconing the access channel, dredging and widening the entry channel and inner harbour and extending the western harbour wall by 230 metres. Other works included construction of a huge 300 linear metre sand trap, extension of a quay and construction of two berths and road and parking facilities.
