BAM International to complete project for PetroJetty

BAM International and its South African joint-venture partner Stefanutti Stocks have been awarded the contract for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of a petroleum jetty at the Kissy Oil Terminal of Freetown in Sierra Leone. It will take the joint venture approximately one year to design and complete the project for PetroJetty Ltd.

The new petroleum jetty comprises a 240 metres steel trestle on steel piles, including a concrete offloading platform of 12 x 25 metres, four mooring dolphins, two breasting dolphins and a fender rack. For the top works, sister company BAM Leidingen & Industrie will engineer and supply the hose tower, the firefighting system and the piping and electrical part.

PetroJetty is the local affiliate of trading and downstream company Oryx Energies, an energy division of private investment group AOG. The new jetty will provide a key import and export facility for the country, and a modern export base for ethanol.

BAM and Stefanutti Stocks have recently completed two other projects in Sierra Leone. As part of the ongoing rehabilitation of African Minerals Ltd’s loading facility for iron ore in Pepel, near Freetown, the joint venture completed a new jetty and  has renovated and extended an existing jetty.

In addition, a string of navigation aids were placed along the Sierra Leone river, to facilitate ship movements by day and by night.
