for different ships
in Porto Amboim
After an in-depth commercial and technical maritime study, the need for an internationally certified offshore terminal becomes obvious. This offshore terminal, together with the ports of the Canary Islands, could lead to the cooperation between both of them in the worldwide mega-trade of the South-Atlantic along the West-African coast.
It is intended with private and public funds from the EU to build a terminal of 3’5 km long and 2’5 km far from Porto Amboim, in order to provide services of containers traffic, bulk and technical assistance and supplies to ships crossing the South-Atlantic.
It is intended to select a reference partner, which in turn benefits itself from the Terminal for its own operations under special conditions and allows facilitating the procedures of permits and authorisations.
Subsequently, it is proposed to develop a great economic pole of tourism and services with the Terminal covering a strategic geo-economy need in the South-Atlantic.
For the mentioned work HC7 TSNG has invested €4M in projects and studies and has another €40M from partners to immediately invest after the processing of licenses and permits.
Likewise, HC7 TSNG will guarantee a EU credit via Spain of €430M to cover the entire budget.
for proteccion of
Port of Riaba
The island of Bioko is currently into an ambitious development process for which the necessary port infrastructures have to be provided. Relying on the benefits derived from maritime traffic and the exploitation of natural resources, it is intended to direct investments to port infrastructures to diversify the productive and commercial system of Equatorial Guinea.
In this favourable environment for investment in maritime transport constructions, a large project is being developed, which emphasises the need of adequate port infrastructures in the Bay of Riaba, in the eastern part of the island.
The new port facility would bring together the export of petroleum products and natural gas in the area, and establish itself as a multimodal platform for goods, mainly in containers, that cross the West-African coast to or from countries in the area.
The creation of a port facility of a certain scale must be accompanied by the introduction of industries associated with or attracted by maritime transport, in order to create a major industrial hub.
for remote rural areas
far from electricity supply
With the support of two leading companies in this field the Canary Islands research centre has designed autonomous energy units that have the ability to capture energy from different natural sources, store it and have it ready for night-time consumption.
The units have been tested under harsh operating conditions, especially under high temperatures. In addition to requiring low maintenance, they have a modular assembly, which facilitates any possible replacement.
It is intended for Angola not to buy the units, but to agree a renting at a very low interest that avoids detracting non-budgeted resources. At the end of the renting the stations are given to each user for their care and maintenance.
In this service to remote communities different development agencies supervised by the Government of Angola and the Government of Spain will participate.
It is intended to install about 100 000 units.
