Another busy year for QuayQuip in Equatorial Guinea
QuayQuip has carried on its earlier successes in Equatorial Guinea by delivering another three orders in 2012, with a total value of €721,000.
Downstream of Cogo on the Río Muni estuary, Akoniki Wharf took delivery in January 2012 of eight sets of QCN 1300 Cone fender systems fitted with panels 3.7m high by 2.3m wide, and six QPA 800×3000L Arch fenders.
A month later, twenty-seven sets of QPF 2500×4000 Pneumatic fenders were installed at the container quay in Malabo, the capital of Equatorial Guinea on Bioko Island.
Militar Port, also in Malabo, received a mixed order during the summer. Fifteen QPF 2000×3500 pneumatic fenders were installed, along with four QPA 500×2000L Arch fenders, 23 T-head bollards rated at 100 tonnes, and all accessories.
Previous deliveries to the country began with seventeen sets of QPF pneumatic fenders in 2010 for the port of Malabo. Orders completed in 2011 included fixed fenders including QCN Cone fender systems and QSA arch fenders to the Porte Petrolier of Bata, and 37 sets of QPF Pneumatic fenders to the main port of Bata.
QuayQuip have a strong track record in Africa. Notable projects include fender systems for the Moma Sands mining project on the coast of Mozambique, a 260m long floating ore trans-shipment at Marampa in Sierra Leone, and all the fendering for the recent updates to Simon’s Town naval base in South Africa. More projects are under way in Africa and will be reported here soon.
