The project management consultancy contract for the development of Kipevu Oil Termial in Kenya has been awarded to Amec Foster Wheeler.
NIRAS awarded the contract to support the next stages in the development of a project by the Kenya Ports Authority project for the offshore relocation and expansion of the terminal in Mombasa.
The scope of the work is to provide technical support and expertise to NIRAS for the development of an engineering, procurement and construction tender package and the evaluation of tenders.
The terminal will be relocated to a site adjacent to Mombasa port berth 16 and 17. It handles more than 90% of the country's imports as well as transit products for Uganda, northern Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, Eastern DRC and Southern Sudan.
Robert Penno, group president of the company's Asia Pacific, Middle East, Africa and southern Europe business says: 'Having been involved in the initial design stage, we are pleased to take this project forward as it will add greatly to the port's capacity.'
