9 August 2018

Cabo Verde’s (Cape Verde’s) National Port Administration (Enapor) has launched a public tender to hire a consultancy and technical assistance services for project management and inspection of the construction and maintenance works of the São Vicente cruise terminal, the company said.

The tender will run in two phases, according to an announcement published on the company’s website, and interested parties should show interest in applying by 28 September.

The consultant is required to assist the government through the ministries of Maritime Economy and Infrastructure, Land Planning and Housing, as well as Enapor in the implementation of the cruise terminal project, by providing services in review areas and updating the basic technical project, cruise destination development plan and public procurement, among others.

The Government of Cabo Verde and the Orio Fund of the Netherlands on 15 July signed a document for a donation of 10 million euros for the construction of the cruise terminal at Porto Grande de São Vicente, expected to cost 29 million euros.

Of this amount, 16 million euros corresponds to funding already guaranteed by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries Fund for International Development (OFID), the agreement for which was signed in Washington in April, and the remaining funding will be provided by the State.

The cruise terminal designed for Porto Grande de São Vicente will have two docks of 400 and 350/300 metres, a maximum depth of 11 metres, and will be served by a sea terminal for passengers, a tourist village next by the shore that will have duty-free shops, restaurants and souvenir shops.
