On Monday May 18th, the Companhia Docas do Rio de Janeiro (CDRJ) inaugurated the Operational Control Center (CCO) for the Port Management Superintendencies of Rio de Janeiro (SUPRIO) and the Environment and Workplace Safety Organ (SUPMAM). The objective is to increase inspection and control levels for operations at the Port of Rio de Janeiro.

The CCO has a monitoring system with more than 100 cameras, which are shared with the Port Security Command and Control Center (CCCSP), as well as radios and image capture systems. The new structure will be managed by a multidisciplinary team, with members of the operational, environmental, and occupational safety departments of Rio de Janeiro Port, thus optimizing the response to any non-compliance in these areas.

Medical equipment imports

On Tuesday May 19th, two containers of medical equipment arrived at the Port of Rio de Janeiro.  According to information from the city’s mayor, “the equipment was purchased before the coronavirus pandemic with the aim of supplying hospitals, but now they are essential to the fight against COVID-19”. The two containers, from China, were offloaded at the port’s MultiRio terminal, containing 30 anesthesia carts (which incorporate respirators and come with monitors), 240 electrocardiogram devices, 70 defibrillators, and 80 infusion pumps.
