The Port of Valencia is set to launch a new container terminal that will incorporate technology, eco-efficiency, intermodality and sustainability. The terminal aims to create employment opportunities, stimulate economic activity in the surrounding areas and enhance the reputation of Spanish ports as a European benchmark in the Mediterranean region.

According to PAV, the facility will be placed in the protected waters of the northern expansion, which was finished in 2012, and will have a surface area of about 137 hectares and 1.9 kilometres of berthing line, with a capacity of 5 million containers.

The terminal will reportedly have a fully electrified facility, allowing it to handle huge containerships in service while maintaining excellent performance in both marine and land operations.

In March, PAV announced the opening of the ZAL project (Logistics Activities Zone).
