Stevedoring issues put back Algeciras bidding
Algecrias Port Authority has put back the bidding deadline for those interested in the third container terminal until May 31. This follows unrest in the Spanish ports industry brought about by uncertainties linked to the need to introduce radical changes to the stevedoring model.
In addition, the situation regarding the sale of the former Hanjin container terminal TTIA has not yet been entirely resolved.
The new 30.5ha box terminal forms part of the Phase B development of Isla Verde Exterior. It can be built as either a public facility or a private one as part of a 50-year concession. The initial quay will be 680 metres in length, with up to 130 metres of additional quay potentially available, too. Draft is 18.5 metres.
In the meantime, the port authority president, Manuel Morón, has revealed that the number of movements in the port has fallen by 50% since the threat of stevedoring strikes was announced.
