  • Abstract:  The Saldanha Bay Harbour was primarily constructed for the export of iron ore by Iscor. The existing sheltered area in the bay was considerably enlarged by the construction of a breakwater between the Hoedjies Point peninsula and Marcus Island situated in the middle of the entrance to the bay. The ore loading jetty can accommodate 350 000 dwt ore carriers. During construction it was decided to build an oil jetty capable of handling 250 000 dwt tankers. Extensive use was made of model studies to determine the optimum position of the jetty and breakwater. The construction involved the dredging of large quantities of material to obtain the required depth in the harbour. The harbour was constructed in just over three years at a cost of approximately R100 million.
