Port of Açu, developed and operated by Prumo Logística, will participate in Intermodal South America 2017, to be held on April 4-6, at the Transamérica Expo Center, in São Paulo. The fair is the largest logistics and international trade event in Latin America.
In booth 5-124, visitors will learn details of the Açu Port Complex, the largest port-industry complex in Brazil, which is already providing a unique port and industrial solution in the country. Through interactive and audiovisual tools, visitors will be able to browse all areas of the Industrial Complex and check out operations currently executed on the iron ore, oil and Multicargo (T-MULT) terminals.
Visitors will also learn more about companies that operate in the Port Complex, such as BP Prumo (Prumo-BP partnership to distribute marine fuel), Edison Chouest (developer and operator of the world’s largest offshore support base, located on the enterprise), NOV and Technip FMC units (manufacturers of flexible pipes for the oil & gas industry), and InterMoor (provider of anchoring services).
Another advantage of the Açu Port Complex is the development of an Export Processing Zone (ZPE), a free trade area designed to house companies that export 80% of their output. The ZPE is located on the port’s area and may benefit industries related to coffee and ornamental rocks, among others.
The Açu Port Complex has been operating since October 2014 and currently employs about 4,000 workers. Prumo and companies that operate there have invested about 12 billion reais on the enterprise.
The Multicargo Terminal (T-MULT) has been operating since June 2016, having handled bauxite, pet coke, coal for the steel industry, project cargo and general cargo. The terminal is also authorized to handle any kind of solid and liquid bulk, containers and motor vehicles. As a new shipping alternative in Southeastern Brazil, T-MULT has a customs area of 160,000 m².
T-MULT has 14.5 meters in depth, 500 meters of quayside and a total area of more than 200,000 m². In this first phase, it has capacity to handle 4 million tons of solid bulk and general cargo per year.
Infrastructure available at the terminal includes two Mobile Harbor Cranes Terex/Gottwald 4406B, each with a radius of 46 meters and hoisting capacity of up to 100 tons.
