A new liquid bulk storage terminal is being built in the Port of Caldera, Costa Rica.
Caldera Liquid Terminal will be the first terminal to store solvents, alcohol and oils from March 2018 in the port.
In its first phase, the $4.6 million terminal will comprise six tanks with 800 m3 of capacity. This is due to be operational next February.
Work on its second phase will start in April 2018, and is due to be complete by August 2018. This will comprise four additional tanks, each 800 m3. The terminal will offer facilities for the storage and manipulation of bulk liquids.
Fernando Odio, president of the terminal, is reported as saying: 'Costa Rica does not have this kind of infrastructure in the Pacific, although it already does in the Atlantic Coast.
'The main goal is for national and international companies to import liquid bulk products, store them near the port, and distribute them by means of tankers to their respective factories.'
