The uncertainty over stevedoring reform in Spain has again prompted the Port of Algeciras to again put back the deadline for bids for its third container terminal.

Manuel Morón, president of the port authority, said that bids were due by May 31, but this has now been extended to June 30.

“This new extension has been brought about by the same reasons that prompted the previous extension, namely the uncertainty in the stevedoring sector instigated by the ruling in the European Court of Justice and by the sale of TTI Algeciras; these have yet to be resolved,” he said.

The area involved is of 30.5 hectares, which increases to 37 hectares once public areas are included. The terminal would be erected in the extreme south of Isla Verde Exterior, adjacent to the rail terminal. The plan is for 680 metres of quay, plus an option for a further 130 metres, with alongside draft of 18.5 metres.
