ANTAQ expects to carry out thirteen more bids for port areas by the end of the year. There will be bids in the ports of Paranaguá (PR), Santos (SP), Vila do Conde (PA), Itaqui (MA), Aratu (BA), Itaguaí (RJ), Porto Alegre and Maceió. The information is from the regulation superintendent and chairman of ANTAQ’s Permanent Tender Committee for Port Leases, Bruno Pinheiro.

According to him, there are some processes that are more advanced, such as the Port of Santos. ANTAQ will conduct the auction of two areas – both for pulp handling – on August 28. “The auction sessions will be in person at B3, in São Paulo, but they will follow the entire health protocol due to the coronavirus pandemic,” said Pinheiro. Investments for these two areas will be approximately R$380.8 million.

For January 2021, four more tenders are expected. There will be two areas for Itaqui (liquid fuels); one for Maceió (liquid bulk – sulfuric acid) and Macapá (soybean meal). Total investments involved are R$294.5 million.
