The Port of Buenos Aires is planning to issue two tenders for new container terminals in the first few months of 2017 as a result of a major shake-up of the port’s installations.
DP World has officially requested permission to renew the terminal concessions the company operates in the Port of Buenos Aires. Currently, it operates in terminals 1, 2 and 3, which have a combined area of 430,000 square metres. These were acquired from P&O Ports almost a decade ago.
In the first half of 2017, the government of Argentina is to launch a tender linked to land reclamation in the port of Buenos Aires, which aims to create new quays able to accommodate the largest vessels afloat.
