After a total investment of R$ 3.3 million in the energy network exchange project, the Port of Imbituba completes the works and now has a much more adequate infrastructure for on-site cargo handling and storage operations.

Over the last week, the last stages of the infrastructure works at the Port of Imbituba for the exchange of the energy network were completed and this last Wednesday, (20/04), the administration of the site commented on the investment of R$ 3 .3 million that was made in the project, stating that this was another step taken towards internal improvements with a focus on increasing the quality of the place. 

A total of R$ 3.3 million in investment was applied in infrastructure works for the exchange of the energy network of the Port of Imbituba over the last few months

Located in the southern region of the state of Santa Catarina, the Port of Imbituba is highly important for the movement and storage of cargo in the state and is now investing in infrastructure improvements for these operations. Thus, the site management made an investment of R$ 3.3 million for the exchange of the entire energy network of the complex, after more than 20 years without maintenance performed on the port system. 

Now, with the completion of the infrastructure works at the site, the new network includes approximately 7 km of high voltage lines, with 25 km of underground cabling, in addition to 170 lighter and stronger fiberglass poles. In addition, the entire energy system is prepared to be able to sustain high winds, salt spray and other very common problems within the on-site load handling operations, as a way of ensuring more efficiency in these activities.

The new energy network at the Port of Imbituba also has 225 more economical, durable LED luminaires, with automatic lighting and light intensity control, as a way of guaranteeing more savings on electricity costs and a more conscious consumption. of the resource within the port. The exchange of the energy network was due to signs of wear from use, corrosion due to proximity to the maritime area, in addition to technological outdated, which is now no longer seen on site, since state-of-the-art equipment was used in the network. 

Exchange of energy network at the port is just the first step for the infrastructure works plan that will be carried out throughout 2022

The Port of Imbituba is on a wave of investment in infrastructure works and improvements to cargo handling operations and, since 2018, has been focusing on the initiative. Thus, the CEO of SCPAR Porto de Imbituba, Fábio Riera, commented on the infrastructure works completed already this month at the site and stated that “This investment was vital to provide users of the Port of Imbituba with reliability and continuity in the supply of energy, with adequate structure and technology updated to the best standards of sustainability and energy efficiency”.

Now, in addition to the reformulation of the entire energy system with the works on the site, the port administration is eyeing renewables for a healthier supply and, during the next week, it will launch the tender for a solar energy system, the be installed on approximately 830 m² of roof areas of the Porto facilities, a structure that will contribute 15% of current electricity consumption.

In this way, the Port of Imbituba continues with its efforts to improve port infrastructure and advances to become even more efficient within its operations, focusing on expansion in the national port sector.
