Prumo Logística, the developer and operator of the Port of Açu, announced today the signature of a contract with TRX for the development and implementation of a Logistics Industrial Condominium on the enterprise. Developed in partnership by the two companies, the condominium will be comprised of modular warehouses, yards and space for built-to-suit projects, offering shared and pay-per-use service options.
The condominium will be able to meet demands from suppliers and sub-suppliers of the O&G industry, as well as logistics operators and industrial equipment companies.
“The Logistics Industrial Condominium will be the gateway for suppliers who will meet the demands of plants based in the Port of Açu Industrial District, particularly oil & gas suppliers due to the ramp-up in operations in the offshore support base located on the enterprise. They will be able to lease finished space, without the need to invest to begin operations,” said José Guilherme Vasconcelos, commercial manager of the Port of Açu.
Ralph Annicchino, commercial manager of TRX, explains that the condominium represents an opportunity for investors and future clients. “The concept of modular warehouses and yards, with shared services, will increase competitiveness for future clients and offer cost-cutting possibilities for current clients”.
An area of 208,321 m² was provided for the condominium, which will be located just 3 minutes away from port terminals and rely on a high-capacity road, prepared for transportation of equipment of different sizes.
Investment in the first phase of development is estimated at R$ 30 million, which could increase in line with occupation. Operations are planned to begin in 1H18. About 500 jobs will be created in the first phase.
Founded in 2007, TRX is one of the leading companies in the real estate sector, with 5.6 billion reais in assets under management, 14,000+ investors and 1.5 million square meters in gross leasable area (GLA), developed in Brazil and the U.S.
