All change for Buenos Aires

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.

According to Gonzalo Mórtola, the head of the General Ports Administration (AGP) the plan is to make ports self-financing so that the state no longer has to provide any money for them.

Furthermore, he stated that “there will be no extension nor renegotiation of contracts” for existing concessions, since the central idea of the tender is to promote transparent competition.

With all existing concessions in the port due to expire in 2109, the government wants to see the three existing container terminals – currently run by APM Terminals, HPH and DP World – reduced to just two once the reclamation work is completed.

A linear quay with deeper draft will then allow new generation vessels to be handled.
