Paranaguá Port will expand movements through the Western Export Corridor. Next month, a new terminal will join the West Export Corridor, in the new berth 201. Conveyors for bulk transportation will link the warehouse of the company Cavalca Administração Portuária (CAP) to ship loaders. The private investment is valued at R$ 100 million.

“The modernization carried out by Portos do Paraná, with its new shiploaders and pier extension has made it possible for more export terminals to enter. They will connect to the public common axis, along the lines of the Eastern Export Corridor ”, explains the port authority’s Director of Operations, Luiz Teixeira da Silva Júnior.

According to him, the Western Corridor will bring greater shipping productivity potential. “The pooled system used in Paraná gives us the highest shipping efficiency, reinforcing the position of Paraná’s ports as major exporters of solid bulk,” he explains.

The installation of the new conveyor belts has already been completed, with tests carried out without the product. The company is waiting for the customs process to start the operation. CAP’s warehouse has a static capacity of 55 thousand tons and the shipping capacity using the conveyor belt is 2 thousand tons/hour.

The dala from the terminal to the zero point, or connection point with berth 201, measures 1275 meters. The straps that run this route are completely closed, up to the port.

Two tippers are available for the trucks, with a discharge capacity of up to 350 tons per hour. Both have a dust suction system, guaranteeing 100% use of the goods when the truck is tipped. All lifting and transfer towers also have a dedusting system.

According to Eulisses Zagonel Machado, the terminal’s general manager, the project should generate 60 direct jobs, with the possibility of expansion. “It is a project that has been going on since 2015. With that, we will serve the entire chain. The enterprise is good for the city, for the population, it brings benefits and job creation for those who live here ”, he highlights.
