Hill International JV wins terminal expansion contract in Colombia

The $4.1 million contract to provide project management services in support of the COMPAS Terminal expansion project in Cartagena, Colombia was awarded to a joint venture between Hill International and Gómez Cajiao y Asociados S.A.

   A contract from Compañía de Puertos Asociados S.A. (COMPAS) has been awarded to a joint venture between construction risk management firm Hill International and project management firm Gómez Cajiao y Asociados S.A. to provide project management services in support of the COMPAS Terminal expansion project in Cartagena, Colombia, Hill International said.
   The contract will last three years and has an estimated value of $4.1 million, according to Hill International. Hill’s scope of services includes project management, procurement management, design review, project controls, contract management, health and safety management and quality assurance/quality control, the company said.
   
   “The COMPAS terminal expansion will have a significant impact not just on Colombian trade, but on trade throughout South America,” said Luis Lugo Jr., Hill’s senior vice president and regional manager. “This is Hill’s first major assignment in Colombia and we are excited to be part of such an important initiative.”
   COMPAS Terminal is operated by Cartagena Container Terminal Operator, the joint venture between APM Terminals and Compania de Puertos Asociados S.A.
   The terminal expansion project will allow the terminal to handle a maximum annual capacity of 600,000 TEUs and 900,000 metric tons of general cargo, in order to comply with the majority shareholder, APM Terminals, requirements. It will have a 550-meter quay capable of handling post-Panamax container vessels and a 220-meter quay for general cargo capable of receiving Panamax vessels, according to Hill International.
   Other expansion highlights include an additional 502,675 square feet added to the container yard, the relocating and expansion of terminal buildings, the addition of new ship-to-shore cranes and a new dredge terminal channel depth of 47.6 feet.
