Outer Port of A Coruña houses a new operation for loading metal structures

A Coruña, Spain (PortSEurope) July 15, 2020 – The Outer Port of A Coruña has hosted an operation for loading special parts, in this case, a set of metal structures destined for the construction of a railway bridge in Romania. The ship “Kate C” remains docked at the Punta Langosteira dock. The boarding operation for this merchandise, which totals 3,600 tons, is in charge of
Terminales Marítimos de Galicia, TMGA, a process designed and coordinated by Erhardt Proyectos’ transportation and charter engineering teams. The structures were manufactured by Horta Coslada Construcciones Metálicas SL, located in the Sabón industrial estate, in Arteixo, next to the Outer Port. This is the second shipment of parts destined for a bridge in Romania. The proximity of its facilities to Punta Langosteira favoured its industrial activity, and the company has already exported singular loads to the United Kingdom, to a bridge in Colombia, to a mining operation in Senegal and to a wind complex in the Canary Islands. This operation highlights the versatility of the Outer Port and its adequate functionality for all kinds of stowage manoeuvers, including more complex. Thanks to its capacity in terms of drafts, as well as its extensive logistics area, Punta Langosteira has established itself as a reference port for the movement of large loads. Its location, close to the main industrial estates, allows it to offer a quality service to exporters in the area, which confirms its value as a logistics platform to support industries in the A Coruña metropolitan area.
