In a session held on March 24, the Federal Accounting Court approved the feasibility studies for the lease of the MUC01 terminal at the Port of Fortaleza, in the state of Ceará. The project qualified for inclusion in the Investment Partnerships Program (PPI) portfolio through Decree nº 10.484 / 2020.

The 6,000m² area called MUC01 is intended for the handling and storage of solid vegetable bulk, especially wheat. The expected investments to be made by the auction winners over the 25 years of the contract total R$ 56.7 million. The future leaseholders of the terminal will pay the port authority for the use of the area R$ 63,231.54 per month and an additional R$ 1.54 per ton handled. It is also estimated that more than 1,100 direct and indirect jobs will be generated during the lease.

The approval of studies by the Federal Accounting Court is another important stage of the project. The next phases involve eventual adjustments to the project due to the court’s decision, ANTAQ’s approval of the publication of the draft public notice and contract, in addition to the establishment of a date for the auction session.

The expectation is that the terminal will be auctioned in the third quarter of this year.
