Terminales Maritimos de Galicia (TMGA) has filed a request to build a new dry bulk warehouse at Punta Langosteira, in the outer harbour of the Port of La Coruña in Spain. This facility, which could eventually reach 20,000m2, is the fourth such request made by companies wishing to make use of this new part of the port. The other three companies wishing to relocate to the outer harbour are Hormigones Carral, Galigrain and Pemex.
TMGA is the largest stevedoring company in the port, handling more than 3,000,000 tonnes annually. Its initial plans envisage construction of a 5,200m2 warehouse, which will be used to store various commodities. The company wants to build the warehouse as quickly as possible begin operating there by the end of this year. Investment required will be in the region of €5.5 million and a concession being sought will be for 35 years.
