DP World inaugurates Peru terminal

03 October 2010

Dubai-based ports operator DP World has opened a container port terminal on South America’s Pacific coast. Located close to Peru’s capital city, Lima, DP World Callao has opened a year ahead of schedule after 27 months of construction following the granting of the concession in July 2006. It has an operating annual capacity of around 850,000 TEU and is located in the south zone of the port of Callao, covering an area of 225,000 square metres. Its two berths, each 350 metres with a 16 metre draft, are capable of handling two post-Panamax vessels of around 8,000 TEU at the same time.
