The present project involves the Preliminary Technical Study and Design of Island Terminal and Breakwater Structure at Port Louis Harbour. Construction of the Island Terminal and the breakwater is essential to create a tranquil basin and to accommodate future container traffic at Port Louis, which shall be a major hub in the region for petroleum products, cruise, container transshipment and port related services, according to the Ocean Economy Initiative launched by the GOM. This study, being the first study for the project, is to demonstrate the technical and economic viability of the project, and enable the GOM to be prepared to go ahead the technically challenging project involving the 60 ha offshore reclamation, construction of a breakwater, and substantial dredging. Financing the study from the MIC TA Fund and the Bank’s advice to the MPA through the implementation of the study will facilitate the GOM to proceed with this centerpiece project, minimizing its potential environmental and social impact.
The objective of the study is to assess the technical and economic viability of construction of the Island Terminal and the breakwater to make the country a regional hub and resolve any risk of operation disruption, assess the environmental and social soundness and desirability of the project, and provide the Government of Mauritius with a roadmap for the project, including identification and planning of various project preparatory activities.
The main beneficiary of this project is Government of the Republic of Mauritius.
