Specialist studies including dynamic mooring analysis, coastline impact studies and extensive hydraulic modelling were carried out to measure port tranquillity and predict long wave effects. Road transport studies and a structural assessment of bridges were also included. Preliminary designs and cost estimates were prepared for quay structures, breakwaters, dredging and land based port infrastructure close to the port location.
Once completed, the state-of-the-art Badagry Port & Free Zone will support strong, sustainable growth both regionally and nationally. It will provide the deepest water in West Africa, allowing larger vessels to visit West Africa. This will allow Nigeria’s port system to remain competitive in the global marketplace.
