The construction for the Industrial Development Zone in Saldanha Bay is set to start in August and be completed next year September, with the preparatory site work to be done by the end of this month.

Western Cape MEC of Economic Opportunities Alan Winde said government seeks to grow the sector by transforming Saldanha Bay into a world class rig hub and by equipping local residents with skills they need to take advantage of the opportunities that will come through this project.

Ministerial Spokesperson Bronwynne Jooste said MEC Winde emphasised that the IDZ will play a very important role in driving project Khulisa’s goals to grow the oiling and gas sector and the high growth scenario.

Jooste added that the sector could employ a further 60 000 people and generate another R3 Billion for our economy.
