PowerChina is in talks with the Congolese authorities on the construction of an industrial park in the Kongo Central region where the Inga dam is located and a deep-water port at Banana on the Atlantic Ocean, to process and export bauxite, alumina and other products, according to minister of industry Julien Paluku. PowerChina subsidiary Sinohydro is already part of the consortium selected by the DRC government to build the Inga III project, while the talks on the port are in line with President Felix Tshisekedi’s aim to reduce the role of Dubai’s DP World.
