The Institute of Pacific Ports began with the process of hiring a company that will be in charge of improving works at the Caldera Port, in Puntarenas Province.

The agreement will be carried out under the legal figure of the concession agreement, which is a grant of rights, land or property by a government to a company so that it meets the objectives established in the contract.

In 2020, the Institute Board of Directors agreed to open an international bid to allow worldwide companies to compete for the port improvements agreement.

According to Juan Ramón Rivera, president of the Institute, carrying out the improvement works in the port is "a national emergency," due to the current difficulties such as high port congestion, lack of capacity to receive deep-sea vessels and the lack of infrastructure and equipment.

"Aware of this reality, the Institute established this project as a priority for the region due to the strong economic impact it will have on competitiveness and business opportunities in the Central Pacific," Rivera said.

The company that will be hired must develop improved infrastructure to solve the zone sedimentation problems, build a container's terminal, build an additional berth for a ferry, improvement of the grain terminal, a truck parking area, stabilization of the coastal area, among other works.

People interested in learning more about the process to obtain the government contract can visit the institute's Spanish-language INCOP website or by calling the institute line (506) 2634-9100.

The government, through the Rural Development Institute, announced the recent advances made for the plan to build the first peninsular port in the Nicoya Gulf.

Another port in the process of infrastructure improvements is in Paquera in the Nicoya Peninsula.
