APM Terminals has just released a video update about their Moin terminal development project in Costa Rica.
The Moin terminal is being built on the artificial island, 500 meters out to sea in front of Moin Bay in Limon, Costa Rica.
The consortium Van Oord/BAM International is responsible for the construction of the new terminal and marine access.
The scope of work for Van Oord consists of the construction of a 1.5-km rock breakwater, reclamation of an area of 40 hectares, including soil improvement works and the dredging of the access channel and turning basin.
BAM International will construct the 650-meter quay wall, as well as the pavement, associated buildings and all utilities.
Upon the completion of the project, the new Moin terminal will have an area of 80 hectares, with 1500 meters of quay, 5 berths, a 2.2 km breakwater and an access channel 18 meters deep, serving as a shipping hub for the Caribbean and Central America.
