Port of Luanda movement projected at 16 million tons in 2022

In 2022, the movement of the Port of Luanda is projected at more than 16 million tons of various goods, corresponding to 13 percent above the movement registered in 2021 (14.2 million tons).


With regard to non-containerized cargo at the port, Alberto António Bengue, chairman of the Board of Directors (PCA), quoted by Jornal de Angola, said that it had increased by around 22 percent compared to 2021, having been essentially affected by the import of goods from the basic food basket and petroleum derivatives.

Also for the period in question, the company also foresees a docking of no less than 3778 vessels, of which 501 are long-haul vessels and the remaining 3277 are linked to oil activity. It should be noted that in the previous year (2021), 548 long-haul vessels and 3109 vessels linked to oil activity were registered.

Thus, according to Jornal de Angola, in terms of comparison between the scales of last year and 2021, there is an increase of around three percent with regard to vessels linked to oil activity and a decrease of about nine percent compared to container ships.

However, the PCA, quoted by Jornal de Angola, stressed that although the number of vessels has decreased, the cargo in containers tends to increase, due to the increase in the static capacity of the boats, passing through transporting more cargo, leading to the opening of the port to the arrival of new vessels.

In addition, Alberto Bengue, quoted by Jornal de Angola, also took the opportunity to point out that a cabotage terminal is being built in the port which will serve to receive ferryboats, as well as other ships.

Still within the constructions, he also highlighted the building of a high-precision control tower for inspection of vessel traffic, among others.
