Cuba to upgrade Nuevitas/Tarafa port

The Cuban government is to spend $40m on developing the Port of Nuevitas into one of its largest capacity facilities and to make it the second leading port in the country. It currently handles just 250,000 tonnes annually.

Work at Nuevitas, which is located 70 kilometres from the city of Camagüey, in north-eastern Cuba, will initially involve the removal of two existings breakwaters, which will be replaced by two coastal quays, one of which will mainly handle cruise business.

Among the new facilities to be built will be an incinerator for the treatment of solid waste.

According to Nuevitas port director, Roberto Curbelo, the environmental aspect of the development of the port, which is also known locally at Port Tarafa, will be key to prevent contamination of the bay and destruction of the species that live there.

The development will triple the existing warehouse capacity of 71,000 tonnes and allow ships of up to 186 metres in length to dock there.
