Colombia’s Transport Ministry and its Agencia Nacional de Infraestructura (ANI) infrastructure agency announced December 20 that they've granted a conditional 30-year concession license to the developers of the proposed “Puerto Pisisi” Atlantic freight port at Turbo, Antioquia.

According to ANI, the initial investment would total US$133 million, and when completed the port eventually would handle 1.7 million tons/year of general cargo, containers, solid and liquid bulk materials, vehicles and hydrocarbons.

“Puerto Pisisí is expected to become one of the most representative ports in the Gulf of Urabá, as it is a maritime zone that offers geostrategic conditions for the movement of cargo towards the center of the country,” according to ANI.

“This port is part of the strategy of connecting the country with the world and is complemented by the program of projects of the 4G [fourth-generation] highways that are being executed in Antioquia,” added ANI president Louis Kleyn.

The conditional license requires the Pisisi port developers to sign a construction contract within one year, upon which it could start finalizing its investment plan.

“This terminal expects to mobilize more than 300,000 tons for the first year of operation, until reaching about 1.7 million tons by year 30,” according to ANI.
