Bolloré Transport & Logistics Senegal shipped a large metal structure on behalf of Eiffage GC Marine Senegal for the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim (GTA) project.


The work took place in April with a convoy measuring 14.1 m long, 4.6 m wide and 6.9 m high departing the ro-ro terminal in Dakar to the customer’s site at the Autonomous Port of Dakar.

Bolloré Transport & Logistics Senegal’s Customs agents completed the clearance formalities in less than six hours. After that the logistics teams took over and worked with Dakar Terminal agents to manage the handling operations and the transport of the metal structure. The operations were scheduled to take place at night to avoid inconveniencing road users. 

The GTA project is one of the most important gas development projects currently under way in West Africa, located on the maritime border between Senegal and Mauritania. Phase 1 of the project is currently under development and will produce 2.5 million tonnes of liquefied natural gas per year from 2023.

“The GTA project is a major project which will mobilise a significant number of local resources to enable its completion and the smooth running of operations. A first step has been taken with the delivery of this non-standard equipment, and other operations of various kinds are expected to follow soon,” said Mohamed Diop, regional director Atlantic Africa at Bolloré Transport & Logistics.
