Bilbao Port Authority has put out to tender works associated with its second phase development of the Central Espigón, in the Outer Harbour.
The budget assigned for the project is €55.44 million, and comes entirely from the port’s own resources. Work will be implemented over a 26-month period, with June 20 set as the bidding deadline. Work is expected to begin in the autumn.
Once completed, a further 31.2ha of land will be added to the Outer Harbour, along with the new A3 and A4 berths. Development of this new area of the port first began in the 1990s. It offers deep draught suitable for the handling of dry bulk carriers.
