Thursday, July 30, 2009
The study is being analyzed by the port's board of directors, and foresees extending the container terminal, the solid and liquid bulk terminals, and the construction of a new logistic center of operations.
A Spanish consortium has been chosen to do the feasibility study for an increase in capacity of the port of Santo Tomás de Castilla on Guatemala's Atlantic coast.
The first phase of the remodeling of the Santo Tomas de Castilla Port will be done with a loan from the BCIE (the Central American Bank for Economic Integration) to build new yards for storing containers.
The ports of Quetzal in the Pacific and Santo Tomás de Castilla in the Atlantic will improve their facilities by 2012.
A new dock, measuring 1 kilometer long and 10 meters deep will allow cargo ships up to 15.000 tons.
