Brazil advances with northeast port terminal concession

The Brazilian government announced a public hearing on a concession for a terminal in Maceió port, in northeast Alagoás state.

Investment in the terminal is put at 55.7mn reais (US$10.7mn) over the 25-year contract.

Maceió "is the largest sugar exporter in the northeast region with total production of 4Mt/y, with the African market being the largest consumer," infrastructure minister Tarcísio Gomes de Freitas said in a statement.

MAC13 is a 71,262m2 terminal with capacity to handle 1.74Mt/y. 

The government, which did not release a timetable for the auction, is betting on transport infrastructure concessions and privatizations to contain the economic impact of COVID-19.

The public hearing on the concession of the STS08 and STS08A bulk liquid terminals at Santos port, South America’s busiest, will also be held from June 9 via videoconference, according to waterways transportation agency ANTAQ.

Combined, STS08 and STS08A will require estimated investment of 1.2bn reais over the 25-year contract. The auction is expected for 2021.
