BRASIL: Multicargas Terminal of Açu Port receives New project cargo
Wind turbines of 9 tons each were unloaded last weekend
The Multicargas Terminal at Açu Port (T-MULT) in São João da Barra received, for the first time, a ship loaded with wind turbines for power generation. The BBC Gdansk vessel, from the port of Cabedelo in Paraíba, docked at the terminal last weekend when the three Danish wind turbines, 40 meters long and 9 tons each, were unloaded. The material will be transported through special wagons to the Gargaú Wind Farm, in São Francisco de Itabapoana, also in the Northern Fluminense.
Port Operations Director Ideraldo Goulart highlighted the efficiency of the terminal: “This unprecedented operation in T-MULT consolidates the Açu Port as a platform for developing solutions to the problems of logistics infrastructure and port operation in the country , given its strategic location, great retro-area and technical capacity of the entire team, “he said.
According to Alan Silva, the new business of Terminal Multicargas is a result of the joint work of the commercial and operational areas: “This is a milestone for Oporto and for the team that has been working to attract new projects and new loads for the T-MULT. With the import of these blades from Denmark, the terminal strengthens its consolidation in the international market for project loads, “he said.
T-MULT already moves coke, bauxite, steel coal, project load and general cargo. The terminal is still authorized to operate any type of solid bulk and potential to operate containers and vehicles.
In operation since the second half of 2016, T-MULT already handled 1.15 million tons in cargoes and received a total of 73 vessels. Over the past two years, the terminal has shipped more than 33,000 trucks. Among the equipment available on the T-MULT are two Terex / Gottwald 4406B MHCs, which have a boom range of 46 meters each and load lifting capacity up to 100 tonnes.
