Van Oord Wins Porto Central Contract

Porto Central S.A., a Brazilian joint venture between the Port of Rotterdam and TPK Logística, and Van Oord recently signed an agreement for the development and construction of Porto Central.

The mutual objective is to construct a high quality port, within budget and on schedule. In the area of port development, this is the first time this type of agreement is being executed for a complete greenfield port project.

The port, to be developed in phases to a deep-water port with up to 25 meter draft, will be capable of receiving the largest bulk carriers in the world and Very Large Crude Carriers (VLCCs).

During the first phase of the development, the focus will be on the clients needs. Also, the conditions and requirements of the necessary permits and approvals will be fully incorporated in the designs and plans.

The second phase deals with optimizing construction methods and schedules to enable the port operators to start with their operations as soon as possible.

The third phase of the cooperation is the actual construction of the port.

Van Oord has been active in Brazil for more than 30 years and has successfully executed a variety of projects for both public and private clients. Recent examples are dredging works in the ports of Santos and Rio de Janeiro and the shallow-water installation of a gas pipeline linking the Santos Basin to an onshore installation in Cabiúnas.
