Ushuaia (Tierra del Fuego) new Passenger terminal


National Holidays: Thursday May 25th and Friday May 26th.

Grains and Markets:

Japan is looking for a Panamax of soya beans on August dates. Vietnam still unfixed for the Supramax of soya meal on July dates.

Egypt’s GASC has eventually bought 22,000 tons of sunflower seed oil and 12,000 tons of soya bean oil from ECSA (partly Upriver) late June or Early July.

South Korea’s MFG has purchased 133,000 tons of maize, origin ECSA, for August and South Korea’s NOFI is looking for a Panamax of maize and a Supramax of soya meal for August dates.

Soya trading in Argentina under the third “bonus” exchange rate offered by the Government still remains slack. Only 3,300,000 tons have been traded locally so far.

Ushuaia (Tierra del Fuego) new Passenger terminal:

Construction work is to begin on the new Passenger (Crise ship) Terminal in Ushuaia towards the end of 2023.

USD 36,000,000 will be invested to construct a new passenger terminal to attend cruise ships during the Southern Hemisphere summer.

Nevertheless, the terminal will be open all year round.

It’s design allows it to receive 8,000 passengers per day.

This is further investment after the extension of the pier is completed.


Soya imports Unit VII (Rosario):

Servicios Portuarios SA, owners/operators of two elevators in Rosario have inaugurated facilities to allow the discharge of grains and other bulk cargoes at their berth.

As can be seen on the attached/enclosed video the system is today being applied to receive soya beans from Brazil.

Geared vessels are required. They are then equipped with grabs. Usually two gangs are applied and a discharge rate of 1,500 tons per six hour shift is achieved.


Bunker deliveries at Zona Comun:


As always, the STS operation is up to the discretion of the Master’s of the vessels involved.


Will keep you posted.

Best regards,

Antares Servicios Maritimos S.A.
