Project scope and objective

The project consists of the design, construction, operation and maintenance of a greenfield multipurpose port facility located in the Gulf of Urabá, Antioquia, Colombia, under a 30-year concession contract (the “Project”). The Project will build up on existing and captive traffic (major shipping lines already call at Urabá despite the lack of modern port facilities), becoming the main outlet for Urabá’s banana and fruit exports, which represent 75% of Colombian banana exports. Due to its location and logistic cost advantages, it is also expected that Puerto Antioquia will divert cargo in/out of Medellin (2nd largest city in Colombia and main international trade region in Colombia), in/out Bogotá and their surrounding areas.

Project Cost is estimated at US$650 million, including; (i) an offshore deck with 1337 meters of berth (570 for container, 537 for bulk & general cargo, 230 for RoRo) capable of handling super post-Panamax vessels; (ii) a 3.8km viaduct and access road that connects the offshore deck with the inland terminal; and (iii) 38ha inland terminal/logistic facilities, including a container yard, dry-bulk storage facilities, warehouses, inspection areas, maintenance and admin buildings and utilities. The Project’s initial handling capacity is of 600,000 TEU (expansible to 800,000 TEU), 1.15M tones of general cargo/year, three million tons of bulk cargo, and 60,000 vehicles. The Project currently has land access routes, but prior to start of operations there will be an alternate road build of 13Km, in order to allow for the progressive expansion of port operations.

Early disclosure

For projects with high environmental or social risk an Environmental and Social Strategy (ESS) is prepared early on during the project appraisal and prior to carrying out the environmental and social due diligence (ESDD). The ESS includes the initial E&S risk categorization and a brief description of potential Performance Standards applicable to the project. The ESS for this project is available below. Together with the ESS, IDB Invest also provides access to the client’s preliminary E&S documents that will be reviewed during the ESDD. The client E&S documents for this project can be found under the “CLIENT FILES” section below. Once the environmental and social due diligence is completed, an Environmental and Social Review Summary (ESRS) for the Project will be published on this page.

The results of the ESDD, including any identified gaps are described in the Environmental and Social Review Summary (ESRS) provided below. Any gaps with respect to the IDB Invest Sustainability Policy at the time of the ESDD are addressed in the Environmental and Social Action Plan (ESAP) provided below.
