Construction defects put back Moín opening

APM Terminals has put back until June 2018 the opening of its Moín container terminal, in Limón, Costa Rica.

Originally, the inauguration had been put back by three months after a series of piles that will support the new platform were found to be defective, causing it to tilt irregularly, meaning corrective work was needed.

In addition, 20 metres of the breakwater had been damaged and poor soil compaction was discover in the 40-hectare artificial island.

The Terminal de Contenedores de Moín (TCM) should have opened on January 18, 2018. APMT will be fined for each day’s delay, with similar fines pertaining to construction delays. These will be paid to the National Concessions Council, an arm of the Ministry of Transport and Public Works.

TCM will eventually have six quayside gantry cranes, with a capacity to accommodate 8,000 teu vessels.
