VIDEO: Boskalis Building Latin America’s Largest Port
In the north of Rio de Janeiro state, Boskalis is working on the Açu Superport industrial complex, the largest port-industry enterprise in Latin America, rising out of a greenfield.
The scope of the work includes the dredging of an access and inner channel, turning basin and harbor basin as well as land reclamation work. Boskalis will also construct the revetments at the entrance of the harbor.
The port will consist of two terminals: T1, an offshore terminal for handling iron ore and oil; and T2, an onshore terminal built around the inner navigation channel which accommodates offshore supply companies and will handle bauxite, general cargo and vehicles.
