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.

According to the head of the General Ports Administration, Gonzalo Mórtola, terminal 1 will require investment in the region of $350m, while terminal 2 needs $500m. The two terminals will replace three existing box terminals. 

At the same time, the national government is putting up for sale some key port land: the railway sidings at Empalme Norte (Retiro) and practically all of the customs warehouses adjacent to the container handling facilities in Puerto Nuevo, which will have to be moved because of work associated with Paseo del Bajo. 

Mr Mórtola stated that the port had “signed agreements with the ports of Barcelona and Rotterdam to validate the designs” of the two new terminals.
