Web Alert: Cape Town Port suspends sale and supply of fresh water to ships
09 November 2017
The club is aware that the South African port of Cape Town has recently suspended the sale and supply of fresh water to ships calling at the port, with exceptions considered only in extreme cases. The restriction has been imposed due to serious and prolonged drought conditions in the Cape Town area over the past few years. Ships that require water are advised to take on water at other South African ports, noting however that water restrictions are also in force in Mossel Bay, Port Elizabeth and Ngqura.
