Construction of major fertiliser terminal on final stages

A MODERN revolving fertiliser terminal expected to make Tanzania a regional agricultural inputs distribution hub is set for opening in September.

Yara Tanzania Country Manager, Pal Oystein Stormorken told ‘Daily News’ in Dar es Salaam yesterday that the construction of the US$20 million facility near the port of Dar es Salaam was currently being finalised.

“This terminal investment is part of long-term strategic ambition for Tanzania that Yara has agreed to support building and developing Dar es Salaam’s capacity to become national and regional fertiliser distribution hub,” he said.

Mr Stormorken said the fertiliser terminal would help to make quality fertiliser more readily available to both large and small scale farmers.
