Four bidders vie for construction of Port of Valencia’s North Terminal

News

Four contenders are competing for the opportunity to construct the container quay in the Port of Valencia’s northern extension.

Four bidders have lodged their interest in carrying out the construction works for the container quay in the northern extension of the Port of Valencia, the Port Authority of València (PAV) announced.

The deadline for the submission of bids was Friday, April 5th, and the port authority plans to announce the names of the bidders shortly.

The new container terminal will cover 137 hectares of land and have a berthing line stretching 1,970 meters.

As reported by WorldCargo News, the facility will include an on-dock intermodal rail yard equipped with six tracks, each 1,000 meters long, for loading and unloading trains.

With the capacity to handle 5 million TEU annually, the facility is seen as essential for Valencia to maintain its status as a top container port in the Mediterranean.

According to PAV, the high performance terminal will be fully electrified and it will be able to handle large container ships.

The port has set very ambitious goal of becoming net zero by 2030.

In March, the port received a green light from the government to build an electric substation aimed at connecting port infrastructure with the high-voltage distribution network and ensuring optimum supply of electric power to the port as the port readies to meet growing demand requirements, including those for cold ironing.

In early April, Port of Valencia awarded contracts worth €11.1M to Sampol Ingeniería y Obras SA to install electrical connections at the Transersval de Costa dock, which hosts the MSC container terminal.
