In the presence of Iván Duque Márquez, President of the Republic of Colombia, the first stone was laid this Saturday 23 April in Urabá, marking the launch of the construction of this emblematic project. Puerto Antioquia, a project supported by the local population and awaited for 80 years, is destined to become one of the most important cargo ports in the country!
Egis, in partnership with Aqua & Terra, has been supporting the Puerto Bahía Colombia de Urabá (PBCU) project company and CMA CGM in the development of this project since 2016 and will supervise the works. The construction contract, signed in June 2020, is being carried by the consortium Eiffage Génie Civil Marine and Termotecnica Coindustrial.
