Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA) updated stakeholders at an engagement session recently regarding progress made on establishing the Port of Ngqura as a new petroleum trading hub for Southern Africa.
Three South African ports, operated by Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA), have been nominated for the Africa & Indian Ocean segment of the 25th annual World Travel Awards in the category of “Africa’s Leading Cruise Port 2018.”
The Port of Ngqura is poised to play a vital role in ensuring the security of South Africa’s fuel supply, while creating a new petroleum trading hub for Southern Africa in anticipation of the relocation of existing liquid bulk facilities from Port Elizabeth. This follows the conclusion of an agreement between Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA) and Oiltanking Grindrod Calulo (Pty) Ltd (OTGC) to plan, fund, construct, own, maintain and operate a new liquid bulk handling facility at the Port of Ngqura.

Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA), a division of Transnet SOC Ltd, is taking another step on its journey to digitalise South Africa’s ports operations into ‘SMART People’s Ports’ through a fully integrated e-commerce platform expected to go live in April 2017.
Two new landmarks at the Port of Ngqura, which are part of ongoing developments to position the port as a container transhipment hub for Sub-Saharan Africa, were officially launched by Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA) today.
The new landmarks are the port’s state-of-the-art administration building and an administration craft basin for pilot boats and tugboats, including office facilities for operational staff working on these craft.
Also included in TNPA’s latest R700 million investment into the port is the vacuum based automated mooring technology pioneered at Ngqura last year. Produced by global engineering group, Cavotec, the 26 mooring units were designed, custom manufactured and installed to meet the specific environmental conditions of the Port of Ngqura, which include strong winds that can negatively impact on cargo operations, safety and the port’s efficiency.
