Panama-America consortium plans new Chiriqui port

Posted 14/03/2021

Puerto Barú, a $40 million project to improve Panama's connectivity and take advantage of nautical tourism, will be located in the Gulf of Chiriquí.

In addition to passengers, the terminal would allow the mobilization of fertilizers, aggregates, fuels and agro-industrial products, explained Ismael González, project director, during his presentation at CADE 2021, “Reimagining the Western Region”.

The project backed by a Panama-American consortium is in the initial stage, which includes studies to complete the work that represents an investment of more than $ 40 million and that could be up and running in 24 months. During the construction phase, it is estimated that it will generate 249 direct jobs, 110 indirect

The port, which would open opportunities to producers and industrialists in the area, would have 500 meters of dock with the possibility of extending it up to 850 meters.
