Empresa Portuaria Valparaíso (EPV) will start this Monday, January 11, a bidding process called transition for the delivery to a new operator of this infrastructure, which is expected to be operating during the second half of 2021. This action carried out by EPV seeks to ensure that operational continuity is maintained at Terminal 2 in Valparaíso – Espigón, a site under the responsibility of the concessionaire Terminal Cerros de Valparaíso (TCVAL), whose concession contract expires in April 2021. Javiera Perales, manager of Development and Concessions of Valparaiso Port, said that this “is a very important tender because it allows the operational continuity of the Espigón, maintaining the levels of efficiency and employment stability achieved by the current concessionaire, which is tremendously relevant to offer smooth transfer operations. The executive added that this process does not contemplate infrastructure investment, only in equipment, which could increase the interest among the port actors given the current levels of efficiency and priority of the fractioned cargo that moves through Terminal 2. In relation to the working conditions of the port workers in Terminal 2, Perales said that “this point is very important and I want to emphasize that we are working on an agreement with the port workers who work in Terminal 2 so that the conditions currently agreed with the concessionaire TCVAL, through Agreements for the Provision of Jobs, are maintained with the entry of the new concessionaire. The transition concession will be valid for four years, since, as indicated by Javiera Perales, “the concession period must take into account two elements, the first, that the contract to be delivered is attractive for a private operator and, on the other hand, it must also give enough time to clarify the future of the Environmental Qualification Resolution (RCA) of the Terminal 2 project and the port expansion of Valparaiso. According to our analysis, four years allow us to fulfill both objectives”. “At the same time, it provides the appropriate temporary space to design a second process, also very attractive and after a dialogue with the city,” added the manager. With respect to the conditions established by the TDLC for the T2 bid and which it has proposed to maintain for this transitional bid, unless they are modified by the Court, any controller of other terminals in the region could participate; however, as explained by the EPV’s Development and Concessions manager, these “fall into the category of incumbents and as such, a new entrant has the right to match its bid in the event that one of them is the winner of the bidding process. **Source: PortalPortuario.cl

With a positive balance, the three days of the VII International Congress “Digitalization and Sustainability: The challenges of the port maritime industry” Trans-Port 2021, organized by Fisa, culminated. The Congress was attended by 70 rapporteurs, of which 18 were outstanding professional women in the sector. It was attended by representatives from 24 countries, experts from both the public and private sectors. Topics such as: Challenges and Trends for Maritime Authorities were addressed; Women as a Factor of Change and Sustainability in the Maritime-Port Industry: 2030 Agenda; Public Policies for Port Development; Trade and Transport Facilitation; Green Fuels in Maritime Transport; Digitalization and sustainability-the new trends in Digital Transformation Projects. In the same way, the most important projects to be developed in Chile were shown, such as the San Antonio Outer Port project and Terminal 2 of the Port of Valparaíso, among others. The executive director of Trans-Port, Rodrigo Lobo said that “in the context of public policies, Trans-Port 2021 served as a showcase to disseminate the advances in digital transformation from the maritime, foreign trade, port and transport authorities. In view of the necessary dematerialization of administrative procedures for trade and transport facilitation (Single Windows for Trade and Maritime Single Windows), the public sector must promote support programs to accelerate innovation and collaboration between entrepreneurs and research centers together with the maritime-port industry. Cases such as the Spanish one and in Chile with Conecta Logística, point in this direction”. Rodrigo Lobo added that “Trans-Port 2021 closes with a very interesting message coined from its panelists and with a view to deepening without haste, but without pause, the digital transformation and the adoption of sustainability objectives: Democratizing data and information in the maritime-port industry will be the key to developing more intelligence and greater resilience capabilities.” The congress and exhibition was held in hybrid format, which made it easier for exhibitors from different countries to interact directly with decision makers in the sector and have the opportunity to meet in networking to update the knowledge of professionals linked to the industry. They exchanged experiences and innovations related to the maritime port sector. During Trans-Port 2021, the most important projects to be developed in Chile were exhibited, such as the Puerto Exterior San Antonio project and terminal 2 of the Port of Valparaíso, among others. Technical field visit At the end of the Congress, a technical visit to the port of San Antonio was made to the facilities of DP World and San Antonio International Terminal (STI) in which Chilean and foreign visitors could appreciate with their own eyes the operation in the field of port operations. This reveals a large potential market for new business and enormous opportunities for suppliers in the sector, as well as enormous challenges for the public and private sectors in order to update regulations and facilitate the corresponding investment flows in these frameworks. In this context, Trans-Port 2021, made decisive progress in identifying the various markets that will allow the development of this sector to be projected, which contributes to the economies of the countries of the region, convening Chilean and Latin American entrepreneurs, suppliers and authorities in an ideal instance to exchange knowledge, experiences and technologies. The International Congress was inaugurated by the Minister of Transport and Telecommunications, Gloria Hutt and also attended by the President of the Public Enterprise System, Loreto Seguel. In the closing ceremony, the manager of Trans-Port, Rodrigo Lobo announced that the next Congress will be held in September 2022 in the Valparaíso Region.

-Why did Ericsson decide to participate in the Trans-Port Congress and Exhibition 2021?

– Ericsson is recognized worldwide as an undisputed leader in digital platforms and mobile networks, due to the relevance that these technologies have in the society and economy of the countries in which it operates. Today Ericsson is ready to star in another very important chapter of this journey that will be the deployment of 5G in Chile, helping the digital transformation of the port industry. For this reason, we decided for the first time to be present at Trans-Port 2021 so that the port industry knows the contribution that Ericsson can provide to the industry together with communications service providers.

What are the novelties that the company will show at this event?

During the Trans-Port 2021 event, Ericsson will present technology trends, innovative use cases and lessons learned in digital transformation projects in transport and port environments globally and Latin America.

What role does Ericsson play in the port world?

At Ericsson, we use the power of cellular technology to transform ports into more productive and sustainable transport hubs. These digitally connected ports of the future will be able to seamlessly connect millions of shipments and track goods more efficiently and securely. In the field of smart ports, together with the trends of Industry 4.0, Ericsson’s differential with 5G is based on interconnectivity, safety and efficiency, improving the working conditions of the terminals and profitability. Ports and port activity are adopting dedicated networks to control and transform port operations to automate and tele-operate dangerous processes, repetitive tasks, interoperating different manufacturers in the same Dedicated Network 5G, 4G, IoT, Push to Talk, IT. Ericsson’s technologies empower port activity by interconnecting their manufacturer ecosystems without tying to a particular frequency. From the lessons learned in the port sector, Ericsson’s differential is to combine licensed and unlicensed frequencies with the security, privacy of low-latency private processing at the same site, allowing, for example, automated port vehicles, and creating a much more efficient and secure way to connect and track all shipments and goods. 5G is indeed an evolution of the way services are marketed, and also an expansion of digitalization for industry, ports, transportation, smart cities, public safety, health and many other industries for a better society c

Raimundo Cruzat, new president of the Port Authority of Puerto San Antonio (EPSA) and Chairman of the International Congress Trans-Port2021.

“In this decade, San Antonio will advance in its dual mission of consolidating its leadership position in international trade, while expanding its maritime, port and land accessibility infrastructure.”

Press Trans-Port 2022 – www.trans-port.cl

What balance does Puerto San Antonio make regarding the state of cargo recovery that is being experienced this first semester, after the most complicated part of the economic disruption derived from the COVID-19 pandemic has passed but which currently generates externalities in terms of commercial and operational in the port logistics chain and international trade? Between January and July of this year, San Antonio transferred 14,371,465 tons of general cargo, a data that represents 11% more than the same period in 2020, which is obviously a positive balance and that makes us happy. San Antonio’s leadership in the transfer of different types of merchandise is due to the commitment of many actors, including concessionaires, port workers, EPSA’s own collaborators, truckers, etc. On the other hand, port congestion is a global phenomenon that has changed market conditions, with processes in the international logistics chain that go far beyond a rate determined by one port or another. In fact, the cost to move a container today costs US $ 10,000 versus US $ 1,000 a year ago, which naturally is a foreign matter to us and that responds to the costs that shipping companies charge to cargo not only in Chile Instead, we are talking about a rise that affects cargo globally. Regarding port rates, San Antonio has one of the lowest TUPs in the Chilean port system and there has been no increase in that value for two years. However, there are some factors that are beyond our scope of action related to the removal of cargo that has already been unloaded and it is here that we continue to work together with other actors in the logistics chain to inject more efficiency into the land process and reduce times. The port works 24/7, 365 days a year, however, the other end of the chain, which are those who receive the cargo or send its removal from the port, are not doing it at the same times, generating a lag of this cargo and that our port storage capacity is completed, making cargo dispatches or receptions less efficient. We have had good results in asking the actors for greater coordination, for example, we created a table with the ANAC (association of car importers). With them, a weekly table was created in which withdrawals were coordinated in third shifts and new areas were set up for reception and dispatch. The cargo owners have indeed expressed their concern about these situations, which when explained understand where it is generated. And the effort that is requested of them is that they can operate continuously like the port terminals, from the removal of cargo from the ports, to the reception in their warehouses, especially for shipments that leave direct from maritime concessionaires in address to consignee facilities. How is the port handling the growing storm surge problem and all the externalities that this generates? For the specific case of closure due to storm surges or weather conditions, it should be noted that it is not a measure that is taken arbitrarily and there are several entities involved in it. We must ensure, above all, so that the tasks are carried out safely, without jeopardizing the integrity of our workers, the maritime infrastructure and the environment, nor of the cargo to be mobilized. The one that dictates the parameters to determine the closure or restrictions of the port operation is the Maritime Authority, with whom we are in permanent contact to face adverse weather conditions and a joint work on the matter to be able to modify the maximum wave height allowed in operations. departure and landfall of the ships that carry out cargo transfer in our 4 concessioned terminals. Competitiveness is very relevant, and to be competitive we need to have the port open and safely for as many days as possible. In this sense, it should be noted that San Antonio became the first port in the country to have a robust and integrated system of electronic lines to allow the entry of ships with reduced visibility. These are virtual signs that allow boats to land without the need to have all the physical lines visible. On the other hand, we currently have a wave forecasting system, which allows us to more precisely plan our operation in the face of meteorological events that affect our coast. The reinforcement of the real-time measurement system for Winds, Tides, Waves and Visibility (VCMOV) is also part of the plan, which involved the installation of a second meteorological station and a second oceanographic monitoring buoy. This will generate better data for the Maritime Authority to make decisions regarding port restrictions or closures. Another milestone related to the efficiency of the operation is related to the simulator of the Maritime Instruction and Training Center (CIMAR), with which the San Antonio bay, the port facilities and the type of ships that call were recreated. Regarding the projects in the short and medium term, there is a coordinated effort between the Maritime Authority and the concessionaires to execute a plan that allows to efficiently face this type of natural phenomena, in order to improve the current Vessel Traffic Control System (VTS). We also look forward to the next installation of the Integrated Port Control Center (CICPort), a project that will consist of a building where there will be personnel from Puerto San Antonio and the Chilean Navy in charge of operation and maintenance. This seeks to provide greater security to ships, increase traffic control and thus make more efficient decision-making to open and close ports, taking advantage of the available time windows in a better way. Regarding the Outer Port Project, what is its status and how is the city-port relationship with the new municipal authorities of San Antonio viewed? As for the Exterior Port, it is a project of the State of Chile that will ensure the necessary port operation for the next 100 years that the country requires. It will gradually expand the cargo transfer capacity in San Antonio until it reaches a total of 6 million TEU / year, more than doubling the current transfer capacity of the Valparaíso Region. With this, we will also be enabled to serve state-of-the-art container ships of 400 meters in length (long), which currently cannot dock in any port in the country. It will have positive impacts on the commune and province of San Antonio, allowing great economic activity and generating significant benefits in terms of direct and indirect jobs, road connectivity, housing, gastronomy, tourism and local commerce, among other areas. In terms of employment, only in the construction phase of the project, which would last approximately 8 years, will require the hiring of 1,100 workers, reaching a peak of around 2,200 jobs in the period of greatest demand. Likewise, by the time the Outer Port is operating at full capacity, 2,000 new port and logistics workers will be added to the operation, which will be added to the current staffing. Continuing with the environmental processing of the Puerto Exterior project and once the citizen participation has been concluded, in March of this year we asked the Environmental Assessment Service for an extension until May 31, 2022 to provide satisfactory responses to the observations contained in the Consolidated Report of Request for Clarifications, Rectifications and / or Extensions (ICSARA). The request is based on the fact that the inquiries received will require responses based on the execution of specific studies and activities in the field that must necessarily cover the four seasons of the year, together with the preparation of reports that, as a whole, will allow to deliver in an adequate way. the answers to the clarifications, rectifications and / or extensions requested. The Outer Port of San Antonio is an opportunity to achieve an adequate harmony between port activity and the city, since it will provide answers to current problems and will allow the creation of a new urban order for San Antonio. We are convinced that dialogue is the formula to achieve the development of the entire province and to establish a correct city-port relationship. For this reason, we are already managing official conversations with the newly assumed authorities to build a new way of relating, without prejudice to the fact that we have already had some phone calls and we held a meeting with some councilors who asked us to learn about the tourism project works on the ground called North Coastal Walk. We want to emphasize that, in the design stage of the Outer Port of San Antonio, one of the priorities has been that the project represents an urban contribution. For the construction phase, the use of railway infrastructure and new road solutions has been considered, with the aim of reducing the number of vehicles in charge of transporting stone material in cities, and, consequently, its possible impacts on urban roads from San Antonio and Llolleo. Trans-Port 2021 will offer a wide range of presentations on best practices and success stories at a global level in matters of digitization and sustainability. How does Puerto San Antonio receive the invitation to participate in this event and what expectations does it generate? The event has broad institutional support from the public and private sectors, with Puerto San Antonio being one of the main sponsors. It attracts thousands of people and exhibits shipping companies, manufacturers of ships, products and everything related to maritime matters. It is a window of this sector for the whole world, and San Antonio has to be present, not only because of the relevance of our port today, but also because we are committed to an important project that is to increase cargo transfer capacity. This international body allows the exchange of exhibitions, technologies and information. It is an ideal meeting point to socialize a project as important as the Outer Port. We decided to be one of the main sponsors of Trans-Port 2021 because we are assuming our role as a strategic port in the country, and also considering the tremendous challenge that our growth project implies.

Volcan presents Chancay Park, a “world class” industrial logistics complex, at Trans-Port 2021

Volcan and its Chancay Park project are already part of the Trans-Port 2021 community, the Exhibition and VII International Congress, which will be held between November 9 and 11, 2021 at CasaPiedra Santiago de Chile, and will address the main trends, initiatives and projects of the maritime-port industry and foreign trade in Latin America, and whose central theme is “Digitization and sustainability: Challenges of the maritime-port industry” Volcan Compañía Minera is a Peruvian company with more than 75 years of experience in the mining industry dedicated to the exploration and exploitation of minerals, as well as the commercialization of their concentrates. It has more than 354 thousand hectares of mining concessions, eight operating mines, six concentrator plants and a leaching plant; it also participates in the energy sector with hydroelectric plants, transmission lines and in the transportation sector through a 40% stake in the Chancay port project. In this sense, Volcan is a diversified mining company, a world leader in the production of zinc, lead and silver and committed to the development of Peru. In recent years, the Lima-Callao strategic hub has shown high levels of congestion. Faced with this problem, Volcan decided to start the integral and sustainable development of the port-industrial node of Chancay, 78 km from Lima and with direct access to the Pan-American highway, in order to position it as a great strategic ally of Callao and as a space of logistics, industrial and technological quality to promote the industrial and foreign trade sector of Peru, and configure an advanced innovative axis with Lima, to reinforce its leading position in the South American Pacific. In 2019, Volcan formalized the entry of the Chinese company Cosco Shipping Ports Limited (CSPL), a world leader in port management, in the development of the Chancay Multipurpose Port Project, incorporating this strategic partner for the project with a 60 % stake, Volcan maintains the remaining 40% ownership. The next stage in the development of the port-industrial node began with the planning of the Chancay Industrial Logistics Complex (“Chancay Park”) project, the ideal complement to the Chancay port. This industrial logistics complex is an ecosystem of companies, in which the different industries and services coexist, interact and establish synergies to achieve a qualitative leap in terms of diversification, competitiveness and innovation, incorporating environmental aspects as well. Chancay Park is a “world class” project, a reference for Peru and all South America. A project that integrates and surpasses the conventional concepts of logistics parks, industrial parks and free zones, to become a true logistics-industrial and service “city”, with a strong social focus and environmental preservation that will allow it to become a legacy for future generations. The Chancay Industrial Logistics Complex is located in a strategic place, surrounded by agricultural fields, with excellent infrastructure of roads that connect the project with the main distribution points, and with an integrated multifunctional vocation, to include logistics, industrial areas, service complexes and technology and residential areas. It is mainly oriented to international commercial investments, but also to complement the limitations of the current industrial structure of the Lima-Callao area. The industrial logistics complex will work directly with the new port of Chancay in the storage and distribution of national and international exporting companies in Peru and will have a gross area of 843 Ha which will be divided into: (i) logistics zone, (ii) industrial zone, (iii) commercial zone, (iv) residential zone, (v) amenities, and (vi) green areas. The logistics zone will include 59 Ha of marketable land, while the industrial zone will have 199 Ha of marketable land. Projects such as Chancay Park, which are to be developed over several years and in various socio-economic frameworks of international trade, require a high degree of flexibility. Its planning must be able to adapt, phase to phase, to the requirements of uses and activities, lot typology, connectivity and services that shape the market, both global and Peruvian. The planning of Chancay Park, in this regard, has been conceived with flexibility for: • Allocation of primary uses and activities at each stage of development: logistic, industrial, commercial, services, residential, etc. • Ordering of circulation and connectivity according to the impacts and needs of Chancay Park as a whole. • Development of unit aggregation for the various developers, each of which can implement their own control and security system. • Development that allows for custom-controlled zones. • Lots that can be adapted into different product typologies depending on market demand. • Central zone distributions as a function of demand. The Trans-Port 2021 community officially welcomes Volcan and its Chancay Park project, which will surely be an interesting investment alternative for institutional participants who will be present at the VII Congress and Exhibition in Santiago de Chile
