ANTAQ expects 18 port auctions in 2021 With total investments of R$ 4 billion, 18 port auctions are expected to be held in 2021. The information was confirmed by the general director of ANTAQ, Eduardo Nery. Also in April, bids are expected for four areas at the Port of Itaqui/MA for the handling of fuels; and one at the Port of Pelotas (Rio Grande do Sul) for general cargo, especially wood. These five auctions alone are expected to reach approximately R$ 610 million in investments. According to Nery, tenders are essential to increase port infrastructure, in view of the country's multimodality. "Improving the port infrastructure is fundamental, since the movement of cargo in organized ports and in authorized and leased terminals has a high bias", said. The development of multimodality is also part of ANTAQ's planning. "It is important to identify logistical corridors, economic scenarios, origins and destinations of cargo," said the director-general, stressing that there is a need for a governance structure so that the country can take advantage of multimodality in transport. Another point defended by the director was the government program entitled "BR do Mar", whose objective is to increase the supply of cabotage, encourage competition, create new routes and reduce costs. The bill is about to be voted on in the National Congress. The importance of waterways and the country's potential for inland navigation was also highlighted. Source: ANTAQ / Federal Government Auction for terminals in the Port of Itaqui is scheduled for April this year With the forecast of moving more than R $ 30 billion in investments in the port sector by 2022, the Federal Government expects to carry out about 30 tenders and sign 60 contracts for the adhesion of private use terminals, continuing the revolution that the segment is going through in the country . The auction of the Porto do Itaqui terminals in São Luís (MA) is scheduled for April 9, 2021. In Maranhao, four more fuel terminals will be leased at the Port of Itaqui: IQI03, IQI11, IQI12 and IQI13, responsible for the handling and storage of liquid bulk, mainly fuel, in addition to other complementary facilities. The complex works as a distribution hub for the north and northeast regions, serving Maranhão, Tocantins, Pará and Mato Grosso, in addition to other nearby states by coastal shipping. The leases have already been authorized by TCU and notices published with a date scheduled for auction on 04/09/2021. Currently, the portfolio of the Ministry of Infrastructure has the largest concession program in the world, with a forecast of R$ 264 billion in investments. The idea of the Ministry of Infrastructure is until the end of 2022, to deliver a properly organized port sector, with legal certainty and without expired contracts.

Heavy rains put pressure on Itaqui and Ponta da Madeira terminal Heavy rains in state of Maranhão have put pressure on the shipment of iron ore and soybeans. Climatologically, the month of March is one of the rainiest months of the year in the region of São Luís, capital of Maranhão. However, we are facing the second rainiest March in 15 years, having already accumulated more than 686mm. During this week, the region reported a line up of 70 vessels. In addition, an accident with one of the eight conveyors belt that load the iron to the ships at the beginning of the year made the productivity projections more distant from being reached. According to José Reinaldo, ex-governor and ex-minister of Transport, a way to minimize the problems would be to start the transition from the Ponta da Madeira Terminal to receive other cargo, especially from agribusiness. It is worth mentioning that the completion of the North-South Railway and its connection with Fico (Central-West Integration Railway), scheduled for the next three years, will cause the volume of agribusiness loads to rise and the EFC (Railroad) Vale's Carajás), in addition to the ports in Maranhão, could become bottlenecked for the flow of these new volumes. To avoid the bottleneck, Reinaldo suggests the construction of a railway extension from the EFC to the TPA (Alcântara Port Terminal), a private terminal already approved by ANTAQ. The new terminal negotiates with Vale to make the handling of ore cargo feasible. TPA draft is superior to that of Ponta da Madeira and would expand the Brazilian ore shipping capacity. It is estimated that TPA's handling capacity could reach 560 million tons per year, which would make it the largest iron ore port on the planet. Companies should be aware of potential disputes with demurrage claims and cargo (soy) quality due humidity. With informations from Agência INFRA. Our team is closely monitoring the situation.

A search is underway off southern Nova Scotia for a 54-year-old fisherman who went missing from the fishing vessel 'Miss Janet', which was sailing from Shelburne to Saulnierville, N.S. on Oct 14, 2021, about 4 a.m. AT about 27 kilometres off the coast of Yarmouth, N.S. There were initially four people on board the vessel on Oct 13. Three of them went to sleep, leaving the captain in the wheelhouse. When one of them woke up at about 3:30 a.m., the captain was no longer in the wheelhouse. They searched the boat, but he wasn't on board. The crew immediately made a distress call. The Canadian Coast Guard Ship 'Clarks Harbour', the 'Corporal Teather', a Cormorant helicopter, a Hercules airplane and a PAL aircraft — a private airplane on contract with the military — were dispatched to the area. An additional coast guard vessel, CCGS 'Sir William Alexander', joined the search in the early afternoon. Fog had affected the visibility of the aircraft searching for the man, but the Coast Guard ships were continuing to search along with several commercial vessels. The 'Corporal Teather' was closest to the vessel, and when it arrived, members of the crew boarded the fishing vessel to pilot it back to shore, where it docked around 5 a.m.
The French container giant CMA CGM is working on a plan to rebuild the port of Beirut within three years. Political stalemate in Lebanon has meant that no decisions have been made after the huge explosion that killed 200 in 2020. CMA CGM first presented the plan to the Lebanese authorities in September, which includes the reconstruction of damaged quay facilities and warehouses, along with a port expansion and digitization. The total price was estimated to be between 400 and 600 million. dollar. Another offer was announced on April 9, 2021. German companies presented a multi-billion dollar plan to rebuild the port and surrounding districts, which was also devastated by the violent explosion.
