SFP Pointe-Noire launches a call for interest to mining project promoters to prepare its next phases of investment

·2 min read

SEPT-ÎLES, QC, Jan. 19, 2022 /CNW Telbec/ -Since its creation in 2016, the Société ferroviaire et portuaire de Pointe-Noire (SFP Pointe-Noire) has initiated two major development projects. To plan its next phases of investment, SFPPN is launching today a call for interest to mining developers.

By the end of 2022, SFP Pointe-Noire plans to complete a second major investment project, which will allow it to increase its handling capacity to more than 20 million tons of iron ore per year. In order to plan its next phases of investment, the company submits a call for interest for promoters of mining and/or processing projects that could be started within the next 10 years.

SFP Pointe-Noire therefore invites promoters wishing to be considered in the drafting of the strategic development plan and in the planning of the next phases of the company's investment, to get in touch with its business development department in order to share information and needs relating to these projects.

In addition, the SFP Pointe-Noire wishes to obtain the following information:

  1. Desired starting date for operations.

  2. Annual tonnage

  3. Physical and chemical specifications of the product

  4. Scope of work and process related to rail transport and transhipment operations

  5. Storage space required

"We invite all developers working on a mining or transformation project in the Labrador Trough in the short, medium or long term, to share the anticipated needs of infrastructure and services. Therefore we will be able to ensure that our strategic plan is aligned with the market and our new model will drive the potential next phases of SFP Pointe-Noire's investment," said Louis Gravel, President and CEO of SFP Pointe-Noire.
