The facility manufactures floating piers, which are then transported to the construction site.
"In addition to supplying Golfito's marina, Bellinghman established operations in Costa Rica to service project Marina La Playita, in the Panamanian island of Naos", reported Elfinancierocr.com. "Andrew Gibbs, project development manager at Bellingham ..., explained they decided to operate here because they found it easy to hire personnel..., and for the ease of providing products locally".
Construction will depend on the progress of a Government initiative to provide a concessions for the piers on the Caribbean coast.
One of these piers will be next to the current Taiwanese pier in Moin; it will be 11 meters deep and have to capacity to handle medium-sized ships that travel throughout Central America, the Caribbean and the United States.
An announcement has been made for the construction of multipurpose docks in the Port of Balboa on the Pacific, and in the Port of Cristobal on the Atlantic.
The Panamanian auxiliary marine industry lacked the space required for its activity, which has been an obstacle to its growth, especially when taking into account the increase in maritime activity in the Canal Zone, once the expansion has been completed.
The Tourism Institute has approved to award a new concrete pier project to Alba de Nicaragua, S.A (Albanisa).
According to the government decision, the company will have three years to carry out the work, which comprises the construction of a 210m long and 22m wide reinforced concrete pier with two docking berths.
