APM Terminals (APMT) has been awarded a concession to refurbish and operate an existing four-berth container terminal within Apapa Port, Lagos. APMT has successfully modernised and refurbished the facilities.
To support the improvements CARES Group provided APMT with a range of supporting consultancy services including Environmental Management.
Environmental management support provided by CARES Group was initiated by producing an updated Environmental Management Plan (EMP). This provided the procedures and processes to manage and control the environmental aspects of APMT operations and was intended to be a key component of the overall Environmental Management System (EMS).
To support the EMP implementation and to ensure that the actions taken complied with the requirements of the regulators CARES Group provided in-house expertise to APMT. This support included completing a monitoring programme which was conducted to assess if emissions were likely to impact the health of staff and contractors and to ascertain if levels are within the relevant environmental standards set by the Federal Ministry of Environment and the World Health Organization (WHO).
CARES Group continued to support APMT in developing the Apapa Container Terminal.
