NIRAS is heading an international consortium that has signed a major deal with Tanzania Ports Authority to create a master plan for the strategic development of the ports in the East African country during the next 25 years. NIRAS will lead the study and design of the upgrading of the existing Port of Tanga, the second largest port in the country. The port project also encompasses the construction of a new fully fledged oil terminal in Tanga, which is a hub for rail and ship traffic in northern Tanzania. In order to undertake this challenging task, NIRAS has formed a consortium consisting of ANOVA Consult from Tanzania, MTBS from the Netherlands and ILF from Germany. The construction phase is expected to start in a year, and the expansion of the Port of Tanga is projected to have duration of two and a half years.

Tanzania has three international ports, with Dar es Salaam being the largest. Recent developments in the region have made it necessary to expand both Port of Mtwara in the South and Port of Tanga in the North to meet increased demands for international port capacity.
