Huelva - Flagship Gateway for Commodities in Europe
Around half of Andalusia’s mining output comes from the province of Huelva in Andalusia. As the industry improves after a long downturn, we are investing in infrastructure to support our customers’ production growth from south-western Spain. Our new terminal in the Port of Huelva is a best-in-class facility for the reception, storage, blending and export of minerals and metal concentrates in southern Spain.
The terminal handles an estimated 1 million tonnes of import and export product per year. 240,000 metric-tonne warehouse static capacity, this will allow for the storage and blending of these products, which are exported to sea going vessels via a newly expanded 550-metre private berth. The project is a hallmark of our operational excellence, with the most advanced equipment for rapid product handling and high standards for health, safety and the environment.
For Andalusia, the construction marked a significant commitment to the resurgence of industry in the area.
