Philippines: Mariveles dry bulk terminal
Published: 25 May 2016


Sesia Nectar Port Services Inc announced the start of commercial operations at its Mariveles Dry Bulk Terminal in the Freeport Area of Bataan (FAB), Philippines. The company began developing the port in 2015.

Ramon Atayde, Sesia chairman, said that with the use of mechanised material handlers for faster and more efficient discharge of shipment, the new facility will optimise the operations of dry bulk handling.

The new Mariveles terminal will make FAB a viable location for investors as it will allow companies to ship their products directly to Manila and outside of the Philippines. It is designed to handle shipments of coal, clinker, silica and other raw materials, steel and other dry bulk cargos.
