Port of Açu Receives 100th vessel
The Multicargo Terminal (T-MULT) of Complex of Port of Açu, in the north of the state of Rio de Janeiro, received its 100th vessel, after 3 years of operation.
The milestone was reached with the arrival of the MV Wu Gui Shan vessel, which unloaded 52,500 tons of coal at the terminal. With this last operation, T-MULT accumulates 1.79 million tons handled since its inauguration in 2016, reinforcing itself as the best option for solid bulk, general and project cargo.
According to the Operations Officer of Port of Açu, Ideraldo Goulart, the figure reflects the progress of the Multicargo Terminal: ‘The milestone represents a symbolic achievement and confirms T-MULT's competitive differentials. We are a modern terminal, located in a private port, with customized operations and without waiting time”, he said.
The cargo unloading of the MV Wu Gui Shan was performed by T-MULT operators, who are trained to handle different types of cargo. All of them are residents of São João da Barra and were qualified by Port of Açu. Jonatas Oliveira, has been working at the terminal for 4 years: “Sharing this milestone with T-MULT, with operational responsibilities and high performance, ensures that we are on the right track. For me, being one of the first port operators, of a company that is building a legacy that will cross generations, is unbelievable”, he said.
The Multicargo Terminal handles coke, coal, bauxite, general and project cargo, and is authorized to operate any type of solid bulk and vehicles. Port of Açu is also developing a project to build the necessary infrastructure for container operations.
The expansion project of T-MULT also includes the handling of new types of cargos, the expansion of the stockyard and the construction of covered storage, increasing the terminal activities.
