The upgrading, by Group 5 and Subtech Group, of the export jetty at the Moma Mineral Sands Mine is an unusually challenging marine construction project currently under way in northern Mozambique. Due to its remote location on an open coastline and with restricted access, the work requires careful planning in its design and during construction, with particular attention to construction methodology and temporary works. The work is being undertaken entirely off floating plant, which requires exceptional planning and preparedness, as much of the work can only progress during short weather windows, due to the exposed nature of the site.
