The Brazilian environmental authority, Ibama, has cleared work for the second phase to expand the Port of Pecem, estimated at R$ 568.7 million.
The Multiple Utilities Terminal (Tmut), which was inaugurated in 2011 and was the first expansion of the port since its inception, will be widened.
This second stage of expansion of the port terminal includes a new access bridge to the 1,520 meter long breakwater, paving of 1,065 meters on top of the breakwater, increasing the length of the breakwater by about 90 meters, widening the bridge by about 33 meters and construction of 600 meters of quay with two berths for cargo ships or container ships. The expansion of the stock yard in the terminal to approximately 69,000 square meters is also included.
The date to start the work has still not been announced, but it should be concluded within 30 months.
