APM Terminal is building a new container facility in the port of Lázaro Cárdenas, on the Mexican Pacific coast.

In 2012, APM Terminals signed a 32-year concession for the design, construction and operation of a new deepwater terminal at the port of Lázaro Cárdenas. The project will represent an overall investment of $900m, said APMT in a statement.

The first phase of the construction, which has already begun, of Terminal 2 (TEC2) will include 750 metres of quay, five ship-to-shore (STS) cranes, 22 automatic stacking cranes and two railway cranes, and will be able to accommodate very large container vessels.

The first 300 metres of quay are scheduled to be ready in the first quarter of 2015, which will be followed by the installation of the container handling equipment. “The completed terminal, which will add 1.2m teu of annual throughput capacity, is projected to become operational in the first half 2016,” said APM Terminals.
