Acciona announces the completion of the works on the Port Terminal T2, in Porto do Açu, in São João da Barra – RJ. Made for the client Prumo Logística, the project generated more than 3,400 direct jobs, with 90% of local labor. The municipality is now ready to enter a new logistical era in the merchant shipping and oil industry at last.

The terminal, which required 21 thousand tons of processed steel and 350 thousand cubic meters of concrete, was built using the technology of Kugira, one of the largest floating docks in the world and owned by Acciona, which arrived in Brazil for the first time in 2011 exclusively for this project. As a result, the terminal is the first in Brazil to be built with precast concrete blocks. In total, there were 2,800 meters of protection dikes built with the technology of concrete coffins executed in the Kugira. In total, 42 floating blocks were used.

The use of this technology in the construction of the breakwater allowed a reduction of 8.5 million tons of stones in the rockfill. In addition, this method made it possible for 100 tonnes of CO2 not to be emitted. “Acciona celebrates the completion and delivery of this immensely important work. It was a very big technical challenge, which we managed to accomplish with great quality and professionalism. The Kugira's technology and the team's engagement allowed us to do an excellent job”, says Flávio Luis Saraiva, Acciona's director of construction in Brazil.

Terminal T2 was built to be the gateway, and protection from the open sea, of the internal navigation channel of Porto do Açu. It will allow the passage and anchoring of large ships carrying solid bulk, steel products, coal, pig iron, granite, liquid bulk, general cargo and vehicles, in addition to equipment and materials intended for use in the exploration and production of oil and gas on platforms. offshore. T2 has a length of 6.5 km, 13 thousand meters of pier, 330 meters wide and a depth of 14.5 meters, and has an area facing the internal channel, leased to companies supporting offshore oil and gas activities. gas.
