The joint venture partners said that it will take one year to design and complete the project at Kissy Oil Terminal in Freetown for PetroJetty.

The new petroleum jetty comprises a 240 metres steel trestle on steel piles, including a concrete offloading platform of 12 metres x 25 metres, four mooring dolphins, two breasting dolphins and a fender rack. For the top works, sister company BAM Leidingen & Industrie will engineer and supply the hose tower, the firefighting system and the piping and electrical part, the companies added.

PetroJetty is the local affiliate of trading and downstream company Oryx Energies, energy division of private investment group AOG. The new jetty is expected to provide a key import and export facility for the country, and a modern export base for ethanol, PetroJetty said.

BAM International and Stefanutti Stocks have recently completed two other projects in Sierra Leone. As part of the ongoing rehabilitation of African Minerals Limited’s loading facility for iron ore in Pepel near Freetown, the joint venture had recently completed a new jetty and has renovated and extended an existing jetty.
