Paraná port concessions are national priorities

On Tuesday (27), the federal government qualified four port concessions in Paraná as national priorities. They represent a third of the 12 new infrastructure projects listed by the Investment Partnership Program (PPI).

In addition to the lease of three areas for handling solid bulk (PAR9, PAR14 and PAR15), the PPI approved the study of the concession of the access channel to the Port of Paranaguá. This is the first concession attempt of this type, which provides for the private administration of the stretch of waterway that connects the port to the open sea. The forecast is for investments of R $ 5 billion over 35 years.

“The authorization is for the beginning of studies, which will show us whether it is feasible and beneficial to grant the administration of works, such as dredging, marking and maritime signaling, for example, to the private sector. In this phase, we will identify the current needs, possible improvements and ways to meet the growing demand, with more attractive costs for our users ”, explained the CEO of Portos do Paraná, Luiz Fernando Garcia.

The analysis of the feasibility of the concession also considers the deadlines for the performance of the services performed by the government. “Agility in contracting is one of the premises, since the bidding for dredging works is complex and has a direct impact on the safety of navigation, capacity and competitiveness of a port”, he added.

The studies will be carried out under the technical-operational and financial guidelines of the Government of Paraná, in partnership with the National Secretariat of Ports and Water Transport, linked to the Ministry of Infrastructure. The auction is expected to take place in the first quarter of 2023.

AREAS LEASING – PPI also announced the qualification of three priority areas in the Port of Paranaguá, all aimed at handling solid bulk (soy, wheat, malt, sugar, etc.) for export. The auctions are scheduled to take place in the second quarter of 2022, on the Stock Exchange (B3), and the concessions are expected to last 35 years.

PAR09 has approximately 34.6 thousand square meters and estimated investments of R $ 326.8 million. PAR 14 with approximately 51 thousand square meters and should bring together R $ 50 million in investments. Financial and capacity studies of these two areas are still ongoing.

PAR 15, with 40 thousand square meters, is expected to invest R $ 590 million. The new terminal should reach a static capacity of 115 thousand tons by the end of the contract.
