Port Export Corridor operational capacity will double

The change in the concept of the modernization project of the Paranaguá Port East Export Corridor will increase the operational capacity of the complex by 100%. The initial idea was to enlarge by 33%. The news was announced on Monday (28) by the CEO of Portos do Paraná, Luiz Fernando Garcia, during a monthly meeting between the public company and representatives of the Association of Terminals of the Paranaguá Export Corridor (Atexp).

“The port is ahead because we are not looking now, not even five or ten years from now. We are looking forward to the next fifty years, where we can undoubtedly be able to increase and give this operational peace of mind to those interested in repowering their assets, ”says Garcia.

The CEO explains that the current production capacity in each Corridor berth is to load up to 3,000 tons per hour of bulk, distributed in two existing equipment in each berth. When the idea of ​​increasing the power of the complex came up, it was thought to increase this productivity to 4,000 tons / hour.

However, Garcia points out, planning more in the longer term, considering the power of shiploaders (loaders) and market demand, it will be possible to invest already in this project to reach the volume of up to 18 thousand tons per hour, ie 6 thousand tons. / hour in each berth.

“We’ll do it all with the terminals. Nothing we do will be done in isolation. Transparency, the sharing of opinions and the search for consensus is undoubtedly the best way, ”says Garcia.

MODERNIZATION – The project for remodeling and modernization of the Port of Paranaguá Export Corridor, the system through which grains and bran are handled, was presented in August, with the launching of the basic project bid. The event was held on the 24th. Only one company submitted a proposal, which is under consideration by the Standing Committee on Bidding and Registration (CPLC) of Portos do Paraná.

The basic project for the refurbishment works of the complex will be the basis for the executive project as well as the works that will double the grain and bran shipping capacity through the Corridor’s three exclusive cradles (212, 213 and 214). The goal is to increase productivity to reduce uptime, increase vessel turnover and lower the cost of the entire chain.

The proposal is to develop a new system with the installation of six new conveyor belts and the acquisition of new electromechanical equipment. The new belts will be enclosed – protected to prevent loss of cargo, city dirt and damage to air quality and the environment as a whole from dust. The same project includes all the necessary works for the Export Corridor to operate at full capacity.

“Appa today showed us, signaled, that it is on the road to development and with a very focused eye on infrastructure and long term,” said Atexp director of the board of directors André Maragliano, also manager of Cargill in Paranaguá.
