Jamaican port project expanded
Jamaican construction group Tank-Weld is expanding its Rio Bueno port project to include a liquid petroleum gas (LPG) filling station as well as increased warehouse capacity and a conveyor system for the exportation of aggregates.
In September, Tank-Weld was given the go-ahead to develop a bulk cement and bagging facility on the island’s North coast at a cost of about $1.2 billion.
Ground on the project was broken last Wednesday with a revised total cost estimated at $2.3 billion.
“Tank-Weld Metals will be seeking partnership with people who understand the business as LPG is not our core business, but retain ownership of the port,” said Chris Bicknell, Tank-Weld’s managing director.
