The Ponta do Felix Port Terminal (TPPF), located in the Port of Antonina, Litoral do Paraná, has begun a new phase of its expansion project, which foresees investments of approximately R $ 150 million to modernize and expand existing infrastructure. The current work, already started, foresees the construction of a new fertilizer warehouse – in an area of 17K square meters – with capacity for 120K tons of product, interconnected by conveyor belts with the operational cradles. Investments in this work are of R $ 70 million. This is another step in the TPPF modernization and readjustment project – with an investment of over R $ 25 million over the next 9 months – and which includes the construction of a set of vertical silos for grains, bran and cereals. The work has already been contracted and is in the mobilization phase of personnel and equipment. In addition, the port structure development project foresees the expansion of the berth at 170 meters. TPPF is currently one of the main logistics options for major world producers and Brazilian fertilizer importers. The new dredging of the access channel to the port of Antonina was pointed by the company as a determinant so that a larger number of ships could be moved through the Paraná terminal. TPPF expects this year to move around 1.7 million tons of fertilizer, soybean meal, cereals, bagged sugar and general cargo. Following the completion of dredging and ongoing works, the terminal’s handling capacity is expected to jump from the current 2 million tons to 4 million tons / year.
