Transnet's R10 billion Port of Ngqura is South Africa's first new port built in over 25 years. The historic port north of Port Elizabeth has a strategic geographic position protecting it from the prevailing southwesterly winds. It has an advantage over other South African ports in that it is a deep-water port, with a depth of between 16 and 18 metres, allowing it to accommodate the new-generation container vessels.
