Cartagena, Spain (PortSEurope) December 5, 2018 – Autoridad Portuaria de Cartagena (APC – Port Authority of Cartagena) has approved a tender for a project to improve the loading of LNG and livestock handling.
The project has a bid value of €11.3 million and an execution period of 20 months, and will increase the competitiveness of the port in both types of traffic.
The construction project, which will be executed in the Prince Felipe de Escombreras dock, includes increasing the berthing line to 211 metres, and a space of about 3,000 m² will be set up for the shipment of cattle.
The president of the port authority, Joaquín Segado, said that livestock is one of the busiest businesses in the port of Cartagena, the leading port in Europe to export live cattle and needs more space to guarantee animal welfare and to make operations quicker.
Separately, the port authority will clear the buildings of the old Santa Lucía Foundry.
Another of the issues addressed has to do with the contract of sale of the land of the Franco Deposit and Transport Center for a value of €2,665,740.86.
