Two more port terminals to be auctioned in September
Port of Santos will have auctions for handling and storage of combustible liquid bulk
The National Water Transportation Agency (Antaq) published two bid notices on Friday (15 June) for the lease of port areas and public infrastructure. Auctions 4/2018 and 5/2018, scheduled for September 28 in São Paulo, will include areas in the ports of Santana (Amapá) and Santos (São Paulo).
In total, the leases are likely to generate investments of R$ 249 million over 25 years of contract. In Amapá, the auctions are for the building of public infrastructure for the handling and storage of solid bulks of vegetable origin, especially wood chips. In the Port of Santos, the auction covers handling and storage infrastructure for combustible liquid bulk.
Three other auctions are scheduled for the second half of this year. The first one is on 27 July, with two bids for the leasing of public areas and infrastructure in the Port of Paranaguá (Paraná) and one for the Port of Itaqui (Maranhão).
