Lights go back on in Liberia

[ June 20, 2016   //   ]

Liberian president, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, has officially inaugurated a new port navigation system at the APM Terminals-operated Monrovia Free Port which will enable 24-hour port access for the first time in three decades. Previously, the absence of buoys, lighting and electronic navigation systems limited port access to daylight hours only. APM Terminals began operations at the Port of Monrovia in February 2011 under a 25-year concession. Under the terms of the agreement, US$120 million will be invested in port upgrades.
