TPA earmarks three vessels to ply Lake Nyasa waters

Aug 11, 2016: Tanzania Port Authority (TPA) is finalising the construction of three modern vessels to ply Lake Nyasa. The vessels would help opening up economic and business opportunities for the three regions of Mbeya, Njombe and Ruvuma as well as neighbouring countries of Mozambique and Zambia.

It is expected that the construction of the cargo vessels would be completed in October while the remaining passenger vessel would be ready for use from February next year.

The ship building project is undertaken by Songoro Marine Transport and the passenger vessel will have a capacity of carrying 200 people and a consignment of a maximum weight of 200 tons.

TPA has completed repairing five boats to be used for improving transport in the area thus improving port services in Lake Nyasa.
