Chinese port in Uruguay shelved
Shandong BaoMa Fisheries Group has shelved plans to build a port in the Uruguayan capital Montevideo that could accommodate 500 Chinese vessels, amid legal complications and strong opposition from local residents and environmental organisations. The US$200 million project, which included a free trade zone, shipyard and fish processing and freezing plants, on a private 28-hectare site in Punta Yeguas, a mostly rural area with a public park, required a change in the legal designation of the land.
APM Terminals Uruguay Becomes 90% Emission Free
APM Terminal Inland Services Uruguay (also known as Montevideo Port Services SA) have made large steps towards becoming emission free as 648 solar panels were turned on this month. The solar panels are capable of producing 228.6 MWh per year, enough to meet 90% of the facilities entire annual consumption. The switchover to the renewable energy source will reduce Inland Services Uruguay’s CO2 emissions by approximately 50 tonnes per year. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency it would take around 1,300 seedling trees 10 years to absorb this amount of CO2.Upload News
