Summary

Tanzania Ports Authority (TPA) is planning construction of berths 13 and 14 as a part of the Dar Es Salaam Port Expansion project in Tanzania.

The project involves the construction of two new berths 13-14, to double its capacity to 1.2 million containers per year.

The project will include the construction of a container terminal, quay walls, container space, toll station, administrative space and the construction of other related facilities, and the installation of conveyor belts and safety systems.

Earlier in 2013, TPA canceled the contract awarded to China Communications Construction Company (CCCC) to build the two berths. This, in turn, led to a court case between CCCC and the TPA which was eventually withdrawn by CCCC following the nomination of CHEC to undertake the project.

In January 2014, TPA also canceled the contract of China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC) to build the two berths and appointed Kinshasa-based Impala Africa on the basis that the company will build the two berths and manage them to achieve a return on its investment.

In September 2014, TPA invited Expression of Interest (EOI) for the development of container terminal at berths 13 and 14 under design, build, operate and transfer (DBOT) model. The deadline for submission of bids was October 7, 2014.

Ten companies were shortlisted for the contract namely DP World Dubai, Gulftainer Company Ltd, International Container Terminal Service Inc, Cosco Pacific Ltd, Bollore Africa Logistics Tanzania Ltd, Aveng Group, Said Salim Bakhresa & Company L, Mota - Engil, Consortium of Grup Martim TCB & Mitsubishi Corporation and SSA Marine.

In the fourth quarter of 2014, TPA issued a request for proposal (RFP) for the ten shortlisted companies with submission deadline as April 2015. However, TPA is yet to make a final decision on the tender process.

The project was delayed as the previous two contractors, from China, were disqualified. However, TPA is in the process of re-designing the project. The re-designing process will enable to set construction process, further timelines and will finalize to have a partner for project development. An unnamed German consultant was appointed to undertake the re-designing process.

In March 2016, Marinetime and Transport Business Solutions (MTBS) was appointed as transaction advisor to prepare and implement public-private-partnership (PPP) procurement for a new container terminal.

In April 2016, the project secured US$690 million funds put together by World Bank, Department for International Development (DFID) and TPA.

TPA is in the process of re-designing the project. It is scheduled for completion by 2020.
