Richards Bay port struck by second fire in a week

A fire broke out in the port of Richards Bay just a week after a fire struck one of its terminals.

Transnet spokeswoman Ayanda Shezi said an investigation was ongoing to investigate the cause of the fire on Wednesday.

“Business continuity plans have been implemented and discussions are taking place with affected customers. The cause of the fire has not yet been clarified and an investigation is ongoing. ”

Last week’s fire affected a conveyor belt.

Risk and technical teams were on site to determine the extent of the damage and the immediate operational impact.

This incident is also being investigated.
