Newly rebranded ship services company Seven Seas is making a splash at the IMPA London 2015 marine purchasing and supply event taking place this week as part of London International Shipping Week.
The company announced it was dropping the EMS (Eitzen Maritime Services) prefix of its former name at the same time as unveiling a new range of services – including for the first time port agency – during the two-day show attended by nearly 200 exhibiting companies at the QEII Centre in Westminster.
A consortium of two French companies, CMA CGM and Bolloré Africa Logistics, and China’s China Harbour Engineering Co, have won the concession to operate the 1.4m teu Kribi container terminal in Cameroon.
The concession for the Kribi Container Terminal is 25 years and CMA CGM said vessels up to 8,000 teu capacity would be able to call the 1.4m teu capacity container terminal. “When finished, it will be composed of a 700 metre length wharf and a 32 hectare platform made for 16 metre draught. A first 350 meter length wharf will be operational within a few months,” it said.
