APMT Suape completes land purchase for fully electrified terminal

APM Terminals (APMT) Suape has finalised the purchase of around 50 hectares, marking the next step in the creation of a fully electrified terminal.

With the finalisation of the purchase of land at the Governador Eraldo Gueiros Port Industrial Complex (Suape), Pernambuco, plans to commence operations in the second quarter of 2026 are on track, with work due to commence this month and next.

In 2022, APMT won the judicial auction for the acquisition of the Isolated Production Unit of Estaleiro Atlântico Sul (EAS) land.

Since then, the firm has taken many legal measures to finalise the transaction, which was formalised with the signing of the land acquisition agreement. During this time, the business also focused on planning the project’s building phase.

APMT Suape will be Latin America’s first completely electric terminal, with contemporary infrastructure designed to fulfil consumer demands and pioneering port environmental programmes.

It will be capable of handling up to 400,000 TEU per year, increasing the port complex’s capacity by 55 per cent and creating both direct and indirect jobs.

The new terminal will reportedly use cutting-edge technology and procedures, including a full environmental management system, waste management, wastewater treatment, and groundwater flow modelling for pollution prevention.

APMT noted that it will also have its own 5G network, allowing it to relay information to consumers in real time around the clock.

Remote-controlled Rubber-Tyred Gantry (RTGs) cranes will be deployed to improve remote operational agility, boost productivity, and ensure higher safety.

In October 2023, APMT and DP World announced an initiative to accelerate decarbonisation of the world’s terminals through the widespread electrification of container handling equipment (CHE).
