653 - 8/09 - Cement & Issues - Luanda - Angola

Date: 27/08/2009

The Association would like to inform its members about the issues associated with cement cargoes in the port of Luanda, Angola. Problems have been noticed with the carriage of cement and other materials. These are required as part of large scale on-going construction programme in Angola that has been funded by outside investment.

Due to the need of the construction programme in Angola, large numbers of vessels are carrying cement into the country, especially through the port of Luanda. The cement is carried in large bags, pallets or slings and is often stowed in the hold with other heavy construction material on top or as deck cargo.
