Barranquilla Port Construction Will Begin by Year's End, Say Official

As Platts reports, the construction of Colombia’s first deep-water river coal port near Barranquilla will begin by year’s end, general manager of project operator Sociedad Portuaria de Bocas de Ceniza Rosy del Dago said.

The Superpuerto project is to be built at the mouth of the Magdalena River and part of this project includes dredging of the river bed to a depth of 64 feet to allow the loading of Capesize carriers.

According to del Dago, the port project is to have an initial investment of around $240 million and is expected to have an intial throughput of 5 million mt/year, which is to be expanded to 22 million mt/year five years later.

The project is to be built in three phases, the first being the coal port, the second a liquid bulk port handling crude oil and the third a container yard.
