Port of Rotterdam thinking about JV with Brazil's CearáStaff Writer | March 24, 2017
Port of Rotterdam signs a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the State Government of Ceará with the purpose to jointly study a potential cooperation.
Shipping 11 million tons in 2016
The Industrial Port Complex of Pecém is close to Fortaleza. It is a brownfield port with a throughput of 11 million tons in 2016, mainly coal, iron ore, containers and LNG.
In addition to the Port of Pecém, Port of Rotterdam is developing another Brazilian port: Porto Central, near Vitória in the State of Espírito Santo.
Currently the project focuses on obtaining all necessary licenses as well as client contracts.
The two current PoR projects are independent and complimentary, as they serve distinct hinterlands (2.500 km apart) and will handle different commodities. ■
