A major operation to clear the floor of the coast of Mogadishu port has emptied the port area over of 300 tonnes of ship wrecks and other wastes which have clocked the base of ocean.
The port management company Albayrak said the operation is aimed at clearing the port area to allow unhindered traffic flow noting ships have had difficult docking because of the debris.
“We have done important work, we have extracted 40 tonnes of old sunken ships off the coast which had become a problem for ships that are coming in,” said Albayrak Group Chairman Sami Erol.
The operation is about the extraction and clearing from the remains of sunk old broken ships, boats and rubbish at fronts gates of port where it has been in for years.
Al barayk Group, a Turkish based company that operates the Mogadishu sea port, has in the last few weeks removed 40 tonnes of broken ships inside the sea.
Since the operation of clearing the port area began, a total of 300 tones of ship wreckage and boats have been removed making it easier for ships to dock.
