Four recent developments that mark PortCastello’s progress towards sustainable development

4 October 2017


Sibelco Minerales Cerámicos S.A. has extended its concession by 12.000 m2, an investment of  398,313.6 euros

The president of the Port Authority of Castellón, Francisco Toledo, has highlighted the importance of four positive developments achieved by the port in September of this year: the new bulk liquids dock is now up for tender, the appointment of management for the project to construct a new southern railway access to the port, the decision on where to locate the port’s new intermodal station and the environmental impact report on the interior railway connection.

He informed the board of directors about these matters during the course of the meeting that was held today.

Francisco Toledo explained that “with this new dock PortCastelló will be able to cope with the increase in the traffic of bulk liquids which is forecast to take place in two years time and will avoid the danger that this traffic might be slowed down by lack of docking facilities. The other developments are laying the foundations so that by 2020 PortCastello will be equipped with excellent railway connections which will enable it to attract new types of traffic and do so just at the moment when a large increase in railway traffic is forecast.

“These achievements are the fruit of good teamwork at the Port Authority and will allow us to fulfil our road map of productive investments.” He added.
