The construction of the oil terminal of Cabo Verde’s (Cape Verde’s) national fuel company Enacol in Mindelo, is another step in developing the country’s maritime economy, the Cape Verdean Prime Minister said Saturday at the facility’s opening ceremony.
José Maria Neves in his speech called on private entrepreneurs to follow Enacol’s example, which decided to invest in the construction of the oil terminal by creating a shipping company to serve the islands.
The Prime Minister welcomed Enacol’s initiative, considering that, in addition to developing the fuel supply business for ships (“bunkering”) in the bay of Porto Grande, it will especially boost the Sea grouping
The new Enacol dock and oil terminal, the first built from scratch in Cabo Verde, cost the company 200 million escudos (US$1.9 million) and was built in one year.
Built by the Empreitel Figueiredo company, the terminal is 85.5 metres long and has two piers – the West pier (40 metres long and a draft of between 3.80 and 4.80 metres) and the South pier (45.5 metres long and between 1.5 and 2 metres deep). (macauhub/CV)
