The Port of Guaymas has unveiled plans for a massive expansion project, according to azstarnet.com.
Guillermo Von Borstel Osuna, the port’s marketing director, said the project will extend the port into the bay between Guaymas and neighboring Empalme.
Dredging of the seafloor is scheduled to begin by year’s end, he told members of the Southern Arizona Logistics Education Organization (SALEO) a day after meeting with officials from Maricopa County.
Von Borstel said the Mexican government will fund the expansion, but future terminals for minerals, oil, coal and grains will be leased to private companies.
