Land Purchase for APM Terminals Suape Completed

APM Terminals Suape

APM Terminals Suape has completed the purchase of approximately 50 hectares, the latest stage in developing a fully electrified terminal, which is set to boost trade, employment, and development in northeast Brazil.

With the finalisation of the land purchase at the Governador Eraldo Gueiros Port Industrial Complex (Suape), Pernambuco plans to commence operations in the second quarter of 2026 are on track, with work due to commence this month and next.

In 2022, APM Terminals won the judicial auction to acquire the Isolated Production Unit of Estaleiro Atlântico Sul (EAS) land. Since then, the company has taken several legal steps to complete the deal, which was made official by signing the land purchase. During this period, the company has also worked on developing the project’s construction project.

First 100% electric terminal in Latin America

APM Terminals Suape will be the first 100% electrified terminal in Latin America and will have modern infrastructure, fully planned to meet customer needs, with pioneering initiatives in port sustainability.

It will be able to handle up to 400 thousand TEUs/year and increase the port complex’s capacity by 55%, generating direct and indirect jobs.

With cutting-edge technology and processes, the new terminal will feature a complete environmental management system, waste management, wastewater treatment and groundwater flow modelling for pollution control.

It will also have its own 5G network, making it possible to transmit information to customers in real-time, 24/7. In addition, remote-controlled RTGs (Rubber Tyred Gantry Cranes) will increase remote operational agility, positively impacting productivity and ensuring greater safety.
