Start of bidding process for pipeline installation

Recently (BOE of May 22, 2021), the agreement of the Port Authority of Santander was published. This is the reason why an administrative concession is granted in favor of the Consortium of the ZFS (for a period of 20+5 years) for the occupation of the land of public port domain for the installation of 3 stainless steel and self-cleaning pipes for loading and/or unloading from the ship in the dock of the North Margin to the ZFS facilities and vice versa.

At present, the project is in the supervision phase at the Ministry of Finance. Once this process has been completed, it will be put out to tender and awarded, with work scheduled to begin in the fall of 2021 and to be completed by the end of this year.

Thanks to this important investment in “piping”, Zona Franca Santander will significantly improve the operational capacity of its liquid bulk terminal and will give added value to the 3,000 m2 plot of land occupied by the old Alfa silo, which will be offered for lease this autumn, being particularly suitable to host a new liquid bulk tank facility or a production activity that requires a pipeline connection to the quay due to its location and access to new pipelines.
