The bulk port of Bargny-Sendou is a project initiated by the State of Senegal to support the large import and export volumes of mineral, hydrocarbon and cereal products in and out of Senegal.
The project will unclog the capital and provide users with a modern infrastructure asset which will facilitate the reception of large vessels and therefore lead to a considerable reduction in the costs of loading and unloading of seaborne products.
The Port will have an initial capacity of 20 million tonnes, and will handle 15 million tonnes of commodities in its first year of operations.
SENEGAL MINERGY PORT (SMP) is a Senegalese company established to undertake the development of the port of Bargny-Sendou. The share capital of SMP is held by Senegalese, American and Indian investors. The company has signed a concession agreement with the Government of Senegal for the design, construction and management of what will become the largest bulk port in West Africa.
