Garci´a-Munte´ Energi´a (GME), which currently handles 500,000 tons annually of coal and coke at the Port of Gijo´n, has reached a 14-year agreement to also make use of the neighbouring Northern Spanish port of Avile´s to handle similar commodities. It will occupy a 67,000m2 area on Rai´ces quay, which, unlike its existing terminal in Gijo´n, is rail linked.
