Peruvian maritime services provider Tramarsa will be providing the tools to its subsidiary company Salaverry Terminal Internacional (STI), which will be doing maintenance dredging tasks in the Port of Salaverry, Peru, with an eye on goals for future expansion.
Maintenance dredging is necessary to keep the harbour at a suitable depth; operations that are necessary on a regular basis due to the currents along this part of the Peruvian coast that bring a lot of sand into the harbour area.
Increasing export trade
STI’s work will also consist of modifying the port infrastructure to increase quay length for bulk cargo vessels for the mineral and agricultural sectors. “Corn and fertilizers, as well as copper and anthracite, are all important exports, and Peru is starting to export a lot more fresh fruits and vegetables – so the container trade is going to grow in the future.”
