Costa Rica will have four private piers at Moin by 2016.

Construction will depend on the progress of a Government initiative to provide a concessions for the piers on the Caribbean coast.

Monday, September 22, 2008

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.
The other three piers would be ready in 2016. For the construction of these a breakwater stretching 2.5 kilometers into the open sea from the Moin beach would be needed.

Bulk Terminal Will Lack Conveyor Belt And Silos

July 2011

The price reduction of the new dock at Puerto Caldera will require importers to have a lot of trucks to carry their loads at once.

After three years of back and forth with the project by Sociedad Portuaria de Caldera (manager of the dock) and the Costa Rican Institute of Pacific Ports (INCOP) an agreement has been reached to lower the construction costs from the $44 million projected to $30 million, by eliminating the construction of silos and a conveyor belt for bulk products.

Sole Tender of $800 million for Limón´s New Port

February 2009

The concession for the construction and operation will be offered by means of a sole process, and not fragmented as was speculated.

The idea of a process with several bidders had been supported by business unions such as the Chamber of Exporters of Costa Rica. This decision by the Costa Rican government goes against that idea, for which Minister Karla González had requested that businesspersons reflect on the theme to achieve a consensus on the issue.

Transfer port proposed for Costa Rica's Caribbean coast

October 2008

The construction of the port was proposed for Costa Rica by American Gategay Development (Amega).

The infrastructure would be used for big ships that cannot cross the Panama Canal; goods would be transferred to smaller vessels to continue the journey.

If the Government is interested in the project, they would then proceed with feasibility studies before granting the concession.
