Paysandu port expansion to cost US$50mn (Uruguay)
Upgrades to Uruguay's Paysandu port, located in the department of the same name, will cost some US$50mn, according to national port authority ANP's Paysandu director, Luis Costa.


The project includes the installation of a new gantry crane to begin handling containers at the port, the presidential website reported. Other work will involve reinforcing and extending the dock to 60m.


The port, which is located in department capital Paysandu on the eastern side of the Uruguay river, was historically used to transport bulk soybeans, barley and raw sugar.


The modernization project, slated for completion by mid-2011, will allow the port to expand the variety of cargo handled with the use of containers, Costa said.
