    Brazil has a super port in the southern state of Rio Grande do Sul

    Some 16 million cubic meters of sediment were removed from the so-called internal channel of Rio Grande port, with draft increased from 12.8 to 15 meters

    After two years of dredging works using a federal investment of R$ 500 million, (some 80 million dollars) the Port of Rio Grande – the main port in the southernmost Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul – will be able to receive vessels of up to 366 meters in length. This is because the port’s new draft, (15 meters) was officially approved on October 26th.
