The comprehensive TMEA-funded berths condition assessment and rehabilitation study observed that Berths 11-14, constructed in the 1950s to service conventional cargo, were in critical condition, with foundational piles and the underlying berth structure severely corroded, compromising the safety of users. Furthermore, the berths are increasingly being used for container handling although they do not have the requisite equipment such as ship -to-shore gantry cranes. Consequently, only vessels with their own ship cranes use these berths, leading to low berth productivity levels. The berths originally were also equipped with warehouse facilities alongside the quayside. KPA has since removed the warehouses and paved the yards behind these Berths providing limited container yard storage capacity. The Berth 11-14 construction, part of Mombasa Port Productivity Improvement Programme Phase 2, will seek to increase KPA’s container handling capacity; catalyse an increase in KPA’s productivity levels by more than 20% to support the growing trade and creation of employment in East Africa and stimulate a reduction in the relative intensity in tC02 per tonne of cargo. The Mombasa Port Productivity Improvement Programme will implement a combination of infrastructure and productivity related interventions will be implemented. These will include the expansion of Mombasa county port access roads; construction supervision of berths 11-14; improvement of traffic flow and port access; a financial & cost-benefit analysis Study (Port Tariff Review); capacity Building for Critical Functions within KPA and Bandari College restructuring; Additional PIP activities supported by KPA.
