The San Pedro multipurpose industrial terminal (TIPSP), operated by Arise Ports & Logistics, is celebrating a major milestone in its activities with its first iron ore export operation on behalf of its customer PIMCO Mali, loading 62,415 MT onto the MV Lowlands Mimosa vessel. The vessel docked on the morning of Sunday November 19, 2023, and completed loading at dawn on November 21, 2023, with a record net rate of 45,000 MT per day.

This was the first iron ship handled at TIPSP and, to date, the deepest draught ship (13.53 m) handled by TIPSP. This operation marks the confirmation of a fruitful collaboration between TIPSP and PIMCO Mali, sealing a handling and storage partnership that promises to benefit both parties, and above all to bring additional performance to the activities of the autonomous port of San Pedro.

The export of this valuable iron cargo reinforces TIPSP's reputation as a trusted logistics center throughout the sub-region.

To celebrate this significant event, which confirms a new impetus for the activities of the Port Autonome de San Pedro through the TIPSP, several port authorities were present at the TIPSP terminal on Tuesday November 21, 2O23 to thank the Captain of the MV Lowlands Mimosa and his crew for their presence at the Port of San Pedro via the TIPSP terminal.

Present at the ceremony were the Port Commander, Colonel FADIGA Aly, the Director of Port Infrastructures, Mr. DALLY Pascal, and the Sales and Marketing Director, Mr. YOHOU Rodrigue. Their participation reflects the agreement between PASP and TIPSP.

TIPSP is now capable of direct loading and unloading of Panamax-sized vessels up to 14 m draft at the jetty. Thanks to its state-of-the-art infrastructure and well-trained team, TIPSP is able to carry out ship handling operations at an affordable cost.

Efficient solutions for reducing freight and demurrage on ships, with faster throughput or loading rates per day, and the handling of larger ships at berth.

Terminal expansion for customized solutions

As part of its future development plan, TIPSP announces the forthcoming completion of phase 2 of its facilities. This crucial step will pave the way for the construction of a second 250-meter quay with a 14-meter draught, accompanied by new open and covered storage areas capable of storing a variety of goods, including nickel, lithium, iron, fertilizers and clinker. This expansion will confirm TIPSP as a key player in the port handling sector in West Africa.
