The 2nd phase of the works in Ponta Delgada container terminal is about to start. The respective studies, developed by Consulmar, aimed to solve some pathologies, safety problems and operational limitations of the commercial quay.

The project includes a dockside protection structure, repaving of the embankment and the complete replacement of all technical networks.

The quay advance will be about 25 meters from the existing front, with a total length of about 380 linear meters of quay and an increase of 60% of the embankment area.

The demolition of some buildings, the relocation of the refectory, the remodeling of the concierge and the construction of a new building, as well as some dredging in the basin were planned.
