Port Performance

There is no quay but only an access for motorized pontoon at the extremity of the pier (width: 8 meters, maximum draft: 1.5 meters).  

Port Handling Equipment

There is no crane but ARVIL has one mobile crane (25 tons) and 2 forklifts 4x4 (2 tons) which are probably rentable. 

The 2 pontoons (owned by a Zambian company) are 256 and 516 tons capacity.
