Brazil launches four port P3s

The Brazilian government is to hold an auction to award four port concession projects.

The tenders will take place on December 9 and will be part of the second phase of the country’s latest logistic program.

Three terminals in the port of Sao Paulo will be auctioned, alongside the Ponta da Praia terminal for grain cargo, and the Paqueta and Macuco terminals, both for cellulose cargo. In addition, the auction will include an additional terminal in the northern state of Para.

Meanwhile, the Brazilian government has received seven feasibility, economic and environmental studies for four airports submitted by three consortiums.

The studies correspond to the airports from Salvador, Fortaleza, Porto Alegre and Florianopolis. 

The tender for these airports has been scheduled for the first half of 2016, after the selection of the best feasibility study.
