Learn what the process involved and why it was important for Mauritania’s economy
In Mauritania, the rock extraction and transportation, and the stockpile itself is a great example of this.
The stockpile in Nouakchott, which was used during the first phase of the project to stock rocks ahead of transportation, is a new storage area that we built and are handing over to the port, significantly enhancing the port’s capacity by 160,000 m2 and leaving a lasting legacy. We have partnered with local companies to ensure opportunities for those with the right experience and capability to support our activities in-country and worked with organizations to support capacity building for local businesses.
Over 200 local employees were recruited, trained and employed to run the stockpile operations.
