Manatee ups project cargo capacity

December 19 - Port Manatee has officially opened its newly expanded south gate complex, which features widened entry and exit lanes to facilitate the movement of oversize project cargoes.

The USD1 million project includes new gates, guard kiosk, canopy and lighting, as well as reconfigured security fencing.

The widened lanes are especially designed to accommodate oversize project cargoes, including large LNG heat exchangers being manufactured at the Air Products facility in Port Manatee.

"This expanded gate complex literally opens up Port Manatee to a new era in the handling of oversized project cargoes," said Carlos Buqueras, Port Manatee's executive director.


A ribbon-cutting ceremony is held at Port Manatee to celebrate the opening of the new complex.
