Port of Havana Cuba gets major upgrade for larger vessels

Posted July 03, 2007 by publisher in Cuba Business.

The Andrés González Lines terminal, in the port of Havana, will benefit from an investment program to increase its operation capacity.

The project, which is under negotiations, includes the enlargement of storage facilities, and the installation of new hoisting equipment and generators.

It also includes the construction of a fourth dock, which will be 220 meters long and 10.5 meters deep, to receive ships of 30,000-40,000 tons of deadweight.

The rehabilitation of the port terminal is part of a national development program to be implemented until 2010 to modernize the country’s ports and improve their efficiency.

The terminal can handle 640,000 tons of cargo at present, but that capacity will increase to more than one million tons after the works are completed.

The port of Havana has three 220-meter-long, 10.3-meter-deep docks.
