Work Progress #3

Clients Hutchison Ports ICAVE attended a cocktail party where the status of the New Port of Veracruz was informed.
The work of the new Terminal ICAVE continues to evolve favorably, planning that the major equipment will grow 40% in the first phase, with 7 container ship cranes in the dock, including two recently acquired. It will be May 2019 the date on which Hutchison Ports will be prepared to receive the first vessel in its dock of 700 linear meters corresponding to the first phase, doubling our current capacity once the second phase of ICAVE is completed with 1,050 m.
This transformation is the result of market confidence in the port of Veracruz, as well as the excellent management of a highly experienced port community, as it is the most efficient port in the Gulf of Mexico and, with this investment, will raise its operations to a higher level.
