The distributors Raízen, Ipiranga and Vibra (former BR Distribuidora) will start operating in a new fuel distribution base in Miritituba, Pará. The objective is to meet the demand of the agricultural sector for diesel in the North and in the Central-West regions of Brazil. The investment was approximately BRL 115 million, divided equally among the participants. The base, managed and built by Raízen, can handle 300 million liters of fuel per year and has a total storage capacity of 21,250 m³ of fuel. Agricultural production and transport costs are expected to be reduced. “The new hub of the Santarém and Belém Port Terminals will interconnect, via the basin of the Amazon and Tapajós Rivers, the distribution poles with the markets in the south of Pará and northern Mato Grosso, interconnecting with the existing logistics chain of the Nothern Arch”, said the entities on a note.
