Colombia moves on three new ports

09 Feb 2016

The Colombian Ministry of Transport and the country's National Infrastructure Agency (ANI) are currently moving ahead with three new port projects: the ports of Antioquia, Puerto Solo (Valle del Cauca) and the Sociedad Portuaria Gráneles del Golfo (Córdoba).

“The three news ports should be added to more than 80 port permits that the national government has signed off via the ANI and Cormagdalena,” said Transport Minister Natalia Abello.

All three ports will be multipurpose and able to handle dry and liquid bulk as well as general cargo.

Sociedad Portuaria Gráneles del Golfo is investing $22m and expects to be able to handle 1.48m tons/year.

Antioquia will be a public port handling containers and general cargo, while Solo will be a centre for hydrocarbons, as well as various types of compressed gas.
