Export Corridor is prepared for 2021 demand

The company Portos do Paraná started the maintenance of the structure and the operating system of the Export Corridor of the Port of Paranaguá (Correx). In this period when the new soybean crop is still developing in the field, the other end makes the necessary adjustments and improvements to meet the demand for runoff, which should intensify as of the end of February 2021, when the harvests begin.

“After a year of intense shipping, there is a need to electromechanically conserve all equipment. Thus, we will start the next year prepared to move even more products ”, says the Director of Operations for Portos do Paraná, Luiz Teixeira da Silva Júnior.

According to him, maintenance has been prepared throughout the year because it involves hiring third-party companies, purchasing material and other factors that require prior planning.

“It has to be programmed very well to be executed. When we resume, in February, the normal shipping pace of our agribusiness, this equipment will give us the confidence that we will overcome all demand. This is the main objective, since the equipment worked hard in 2020 ”, adds Teixeira.

The actions are coordinated by the Engineering and Maintenance (Dienge) and Operations (Dioport) departments, in partnership with the Association of Paranaguá Export Corridor Terminals (Aocep) and the Association of Port Operators of the Paranaguá Port Export Corridor (ATEXP).

From January to November, around 19.46 million tons of grains and bran, mainly soybeans (13.34 million), were exported through the complex. In December, according to the director, the corridor should handle around 500 thousand tons, mainly of corn and soybean meal. “It is a low quantity, but fully justified by the time we are in,” he adds.

OPTIMISM – For 2021, the expectation is for a record harvest. According to the National Supply Company (Conab), Brazil should harvest 134.953 million tons of soybeans and the Port of Paranaguá is one of the main outlets for the world.

The soybean exported by the Export Corridor originates mainly in the states of Paraná (about 70%), Mato Grosso and Mato Grosso do Sul.

SCHEDULE – Maintenance will be carried out throughout December. Alternate stops are programmed so as not to completely paralyze the Export Corridor. In the range, equipment maintenance will be initiated by berth 212, for a period of 10 days. Then, it will be in berth 214 (for 25 days) and, finally, in 213 (for 34 days).

In addition to preventive maintenance, Correx will also undergo corrective, predictive maintenance and adjustments for gains in production processes.
