Cartagena, Spain (PortSEurope) November 30, 2018 – Cartagena port plans to launch next year projects for the construction of a terminal for the supply of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to ships and another for the handling of livestock.
The LNG investment project will be approved today in the board of directors of that body. Subsequently, the works will be tendered throughout 2019. The company that will be awarded the contract will have 20 months to undertake the works.
They will basically consist of filling an area that is currently composed of pontoons linked by footbridges, to gain almost 4,000 #m2 of space. A dock of 211 metres will result from the project, explained the president of the port authority, Joaquín Segado, said.
Autoridad Portuaria de Cartagena (APC – Port Authority of Cartagena) has been working on the LNG project for several years, together with other companies, such as Enagás.
