DP World Santos, one of the largest and most modern multi-purpose port terminals in the country, installed on the left bank of the Port of Santos, received on April 29th the authorization of Antaq (National Waterway Transport Agency) to operate its new section of pier, which corresponds to 1.100 meters long, within the authorized area of 1.372.225.00 square meters.

The term regularizes the construction of the last 226.75 meters of the East pier and a ‘dolfin’ (a kind of metal walkway for workers to moor vessels), concluding the 447-meter section, which is part of the project to expand the docking of the company.

The new 226-meter pier section includes several works to expand the terminal for pulp operations.
