SPRBun opens US$15mn Buenaventura port expansion work (Colombia)

Colombia's Buenaventura port operator SPRBun has opened expansion work costing an estimated US$15mn, local daily El País reported.

Work, carried out in 2010, included adding 10,000m2 of patios, bulk storage centers and sheds. Local container terminal operator Tecsa also installed US$11mn in new equipment, including a reach stacker, two container elevators and 24 terminal tractors.

The expansion works are part of a US$122mn two-year modernization plan for the port, aimed at expanding it to handle post-Panamax ships.

The new infrastructure was inaugurated during a ceremony to celebrate 17 years of operation at the port.

"Since January 27, when we began work, we've been able to carry out over 12,000 cargo movements, which is a very positive sign," SPRBun general manager Gabriel Corres was quoted as saying.
