Açu Port wins award in New York City

​Prumo and Açu Port were recognized in the IJGlobal Americas Awards 2015, held this month in New York City.

The enterprise was named “Deal of the Year” in the Latin American Ports category, for its debt renegotiations with Bradesco, Santander, BNDES and FI-FGTS last year.

Prumo CFO Eugenio Figueiredo and Legal Director Flávio Valle represented the company in the ceremony. The event was organized by IJ Global (formerly known as Euromoney) and grants the most important awards in the international project-finance market. It gathered representatives from the Americas and awarded infrastructure and energy projects recognized for their excellence, achievements and innovation.

“It was such an honor to receive this award, which acknowledges all the work that we have been doing at Açu Port in the past nine years. We are committed to continuing progress of a port that establishes a new paradigm in sustainable development for the Northern part of Rio de Janeiro state, contributing to the efficiency of the national logistics system,” said Figueiredo.
