Gijón, Spain (PortSEurope) February 20, 2018 – Luxembourg-based steel giant ArcelorMittal has started using Gijón port to export a 108-metre long rail manufactured in its Veriña factory.
The company had already started manufacturing the new product in October last year, after an investment of more than €30 million ($37 million). Since then he has already shipped to France and other parts of Spain by rail.
The port of Gijón has improved after an innovation developed by General Port Activities (AGP), stevedoring exclusively for ArcelorMittal in Asturias, which allows the loading and unloading of rails the size of a football field without suffering structural damage.
This first shipment goes to the port of Southampton, in the south of England.
