Huelva, Spain (PortSEurope) October 12, 2021 – International port terminal operator Yilport will apply to manage the new container terminal at the port of Huelva in order to compete in the 24 million TEU transshipment market in the Strait of Gibraltar. The interest was declared by Yilport’s head of Terminal Development, Rafael Sapiña, on the first day of the Mediterranean Ports and Shipping held in Valencia.
Yilport already holds the concession for the Huelva container terminal and has recently invested in three new Super Post Panamax quay gantry cranes. Yilport alsohas terminal operations in Leixões, Lisbon Liscont, Lisbon Sotagus, Setubal, Tersado, Figueira da Foz and Aveiro (all in Portugal), and Ferrol (Spain). In a related development, Yilport also announced the start of a railway service with Renfe (state-owned Spanish rail operator) and Takargo (Portuguese rail transport company) between the Huelva and the Portuguese terminals of Lisbon, Setúbal and Leixoes. Port of Huelva Earlier this month, the Port of Huelva issued a tender for the administrative concession for the construction and operation of a maritime terminal for containers and conventional general merchandise in the South dock. The Port of Huelva is carrying out a northern expansion of the South Pier. This will increase the berthing line by 525 meters and will make it possible for storage of containers to be increased by up to 225,000 m². Huelva is located in Andalusia on Spain’s Atlantic coast, close to Portugal and the Strait of Gibraltar, touching the main line of global cargo trade in the north-south axis. It is a natural gateway for Mainland Spain-Canary Islands traffic and it is positioned as a possible gateway to Europe, Africa and Americas. Copyright (C) PortSEurope. All Rights Reserved. 2021.
