In light of the situation, Hartmut Goeritz, Managing Director for APM Terminals, commented:

The company has been working toward this goal since operations began. This seal is very important for us, it marks the start of a significant alliance with Grupo ICE to work on projects that benefit of the economic, social and environmental development of the country.

As Río Blanco substation came into operation during 2019, it supplies the Moín Container Terminal (TCM) with renewable electricity through a 230-kilovolt high-voltage line. This infrastructure has two transformers - one main and one backup - of 75 megavolt amperes each.

For the records, in 2019 the company reached a remarkable renewable energy ratio of 96.16%.

This action takes part of the Country’s commitment to the environmental development and sustainability.Since 2015, Costa Rica exceeds 98% renewable generation across all of the country. We are committed to the National Decarbonization Plan and environmental sustainability.
