Mexican port in line for four new terminals
The Port of Manzanillo is being considered for an expansion project to include the construction of four new terminals.
These comprise a specialised container terminal with capacity to mobilise 1.75m teus per year, plus agricultural bulk, mineral bulk and hydrocarbons terminals, said the port. It added that the Mexican government’s General Coordination of Ports and Merchant Marine (CGPyMM) considers the expansion “necessary” to support the development of the National Port System, to meet the growing demand for port services and generate greater social, local and regional development.
Additionally, to strengthen the port-city relationship and reconcile port development with the environment, there are plans to build five dams for the retention of silt in the course of the Punta de Agua stream and the modernisation of a water treatment plant.
The project will be funded by private and public resources.
During the first five months of this year, Manzanillo has mobilised 13.5m tonnes of cargo and 1.24m teus; 1.2% and 4.8% higher than the same period last year, respectively.
