Construction of the new pulp terminal at the Port of Paranaguá begins

The largest producer and exporter of paper for packaging and paper packaging in Brazil, Klabin has started the works for the construction of its new terminal at the quay of the Port of Paranaguá. The project is expected to generate 180 jobs at this stage. When it is in operation, there will be about 170 direct and indirect employees in the terminal’s operation.

The order to release the services was signed at the beginning of July by the public company Portos do Paraná. “The location in a primary area will give even more agility to the pulp and derivatives operation. It is an important investment in the State’s port infrastructure, which will generate employment and income for the coast”, highlights the CEO of Portos do Paraná, Luiz Fernando Garcia.

In addition to the acquisition of equipment and operating systems, two kilometers of railway branches and a 21,860 square meter warehouse must be built. The estimated investment is around R$ 130 million, planned for 2022.

AREA – The PAR01 area, of 27,530 square meters, was purchased by Klabin in an auction held in August 2019. The concession contract was signed in early 2020, ending two decades without new leases at the Port of Paranaguá. The area’s exploration contract is for 25 years, renewable for another 45 years.

“We are happy to start work on the new terminal, paying attention to all health and safety protocols”, comments Sandro Ávila, Klabin’s Director of Operational Planning, Logistics and Supplies. “This is a very important project for the company and one that it will bring about great social and economic contribution to Paranaguá”, he adds.

The expectation is that in the first year of operations the company will move 1.4 million tonnes through the port of Paraná. With the conclusion of the second expansion phase of the Klabin Unit in Ortigueira (Puma II Project) – scheduled for 2023 – the company expects to handle 2.2 million tons per year via Paranaguá.

SOCIAL – Klabin also makes important social investments in the municipality. Among them is the Public Management Support Program, which offers managers (mayors, secretaries and teams) public management techniques and tools for planning and monitoring actions. It also implements all the conditions of the Neighborhood Impact Study (EIV), including the construction of an exclusive walkway at the main railway crossing point, which will benefit around 2,800 workers per day, and environmental education programs in schools.
