    Valparaíso planning a cruise pier that can handle a pair of 300-meters ships

    The US$ 30m initiative involves an area of approximately 2,300 square meters on the land side, to consolidate offices for the pier's operations and cargo

    The Chilean port of Valparaíso has plans for a specific cruise ships pier, where calls have dropped due to berthing conflicts with the cargo business. Agencias Universales SA, Agunsa, has proposed the pier, designed in conjunction with the Dutch engineering company Royal HaskoningDHV, and it would be able to handle a pair of 300-meter ships simultaneously, with the possibility to expand for bigger vessels in future.
