The Port of Ngqura is South Africa’s newest port. It is capable of handling container, dry and liquid bulk vessels and is able to accommodate rig repairs and surveys. The port has been identified as a potential service provider to the offshore oil and gas sector and has already welcomed a number of rigs for servicing. Bordered by the country’s largest IDZ, the Coega Industrial Development Zone, the area is being developed for economic upliftment.
The Eastern Cape Province generally enjoys a subtropical climate with regular rainfall in summer months. Wind is a factor in port and vessels should be prepared to proceed to sea at short notice at the approach of bad weather.
