Port projects mooted for northern Chile
A number of high value port projects are being considered in the north of Chile.
A new power plant, known as Red Dragon (ENGIE), requires a dedicated quay for the discharge of fuel, which requires investment of approximately $1bn.
Close to the Port of Antofagasta, another new power plant is also undergoing environmental evaluation and has a projected cost of $1.3bn, which would require its own fuel import facilities.
At the Port of Mejillones, the dry bulk terminal is also to be expanded at a cost of $100m.
Additionally, mining company Spence (BHP) is looking to build an $800m desalination plant in Mejillones, while a logistics park is being planned next to the port on a 100ha site. In its initial phase, $14m of investment is planned and work will commence in early 2018.
