The Ministry of Transport and Communications’ General Directorate of Environmental Affairs (DGAAM) has granted environmental authorization to APM Terminals Callao for Stage 3ª development works at the Multipurpose North Terminal.
This milestone allows the commencement of construction, including a battery of vertical silos for clean grains, two continuous grain unloaders, 2.13 hectares of paving, and enhancements to the access gate for general cargo. The total investment, initially projected at US$69 million, will now be increased to US$95 million, demonstrating APM Terminals Callao’s commitment to port sector development and infrastructure improvement for the benefit of Peru and its citizens.
Lars Vang Christensen, CEO of APM Terminals Callao, expressed satisfaction with the approval, stating, “APM Terminals Callao and our shareholders have received with satisfaction approval from the Ministry of Transport and Communications for the environmental approach necessary for the execution of this great port investment. This will enable us to close infrastructure gaps in the country.'”
