In cooperation with the Van Oord – BAM International consortium, is constructing a world-class container terminal in Moín, Costa Rica.

APM Terminals signed this $992 million 33-year concession contract with the Costa Rican government to design, finance, construct, operate and maintain the new Moín Container Terminal on the Caribbean coast back in 2011.

In 2015 side stone dumping vessel HAM 601 began with the construction of the 2,200 meters long breakwater. Trailing suction hopper dredger Volvox Atalanta also started immediately in order to get the 6.5 million cubic meters of sand which is needed for the land reclamation.

In addition, Van Oord deployed cutter suction dredger Castor to remove stiff clay and to recycle the material that ends up outside the projected boundaries of the terminal area.

Because it involves so many of these interdependencies between project phases and their associated activities, the Moín container terminal project is a good example of a complex project.

If all goes according to schedule, the construction of the Moín container terminal will be completed in December 2017.
