Dangote Fertilizer Manufacturing facilities and future expansion plans require a marine interface to import raw materials and to export products to the global market. The present jetty has a dredge depth of ~-8.5m CD and is used for ro-ro cargo. Furthermore, there is no interface for product transfer from manufacturing facilities. Therefore, the Client proposed to expand the port by developing an inner basin behind the sand bar.

CDR has provided the following services:

  • Determine and confirm basis of design
  • Layout and marine engineering design study
  • Design input conditions for quay wall design
  • Fast-time simulations
  • Wave penetration study
  • Basic mooring and downtime assessment + indication of mooring risks
New design being realised
