The Ministry of Infrastructure contracted the study “Feasibility for the macro and micro location of a deep water port in the Araya Peninsula”, to Incostas. Its main objectives were the following:
Handle deep draft vessels. Provide easy marine access. Provide connection to rail system. Handle different types of general load, containers, bulk load, etc., as well as import and export.
The influence zone covers the Venezuela’s northeastern and Guayana regions, but could in the future include other countries of the Caribbean and South America.
