Mozambique Port of Quelimane

Key port information can also be found at: Website of the Maritime Database on the Port of Quelimane

Port Overview:

Quelimane is a small sea port approx 25 kms inland on the banks of the Luala River. It was the major point of export for regional agricultural products; mostly rice, cotton and forestry products, but with the decline of production during the civil war in the 1980’s and ‘90’s the port was neglected and fell into decline. At present rhe port is being completely renewed and overhauled, it has a new concrete quay of 250 m long. The Quelimane electric power supply is reasonably stable but the port has installed a 250 KVA generator to ensure power supply at all times for cool and freezer installations and security lighting and a new security fence surrounds the port area. The quay has two berths of 125 m each with an alongside draft of only 5 m, the tidal difference is approximately 3 m
