Inter-American Development Bank commits $135 million to Puerto Cortés revamp

Friday, December 3, 2010


The Inter-American Development Bank has committed $135 million in loans to finance the construction of a new container terminal in Puerto Cortés, the main port of Honduras and the largest in Central America.
 
The project to expand and modernise the deepest port in the region will involve dredging the harbour basin and slips and redepositing the material to create a new area of reclaimed land.
 
This reclaimed space will become the new container terminal, and serve as a future expansion area to accommodate a planned organic bulk terminal.
