Trips between Cabinda and Soyo start from the last quarter of this year

The interim president of the Board of Directors (PCA) of Sécil Marítima, João Martins, revealed that the trips between Cabinda and Soyo should start from the last quarter of this year.


"The beginning of operations is conditioned to the docking (general repair) of vessels, catamarans and the Cabinda ferryboat, as well as the completion of works at passenger terminals and technical and technological equipment," the official told Angop.

The responsible clarified that, according to the program of the Ministry of Transport, the operations between Luanda/Cabinda and Soyo were scheduled to start this month. However, due to financial reasons, which have already been overcome, the dates had to be changed.

According to João Martins, a previous solution had to be found because of delays in the works of the maritime passenger terminals of Cabinda, Soyo and Luanda. The responsible explained that the solution is related to the start of the operations between Cabinda and Soyo, which is dependent on docking and works in the terminals.

He made it known that since last month, two vessels have been docking in order to renew the hull, paint, and overhaul the engines, among other technical aspects.

In this sense, he indicated that as soon as the two vessels are ready and the issues of tickets, training of technicians, completion of terminals, among others, are resolved, the ships will start operating.

Cited by Angop, the official indicated that the works of the passenger terminals of Cabinda and Soyo are in the final stage.

The official said that, initially, there will be two trips per week, with about 10 hours between the capital and Cabinda, explaining that demand will dictate whether or not it is necessary to increase the number of trips.
