Wednesday, July 29, 2009
Lack of agreement between owners of the land to be used for the construction, and Carnival Corporation, is hinted as the main reason for this cancellation.
A Spanish consortium has been chosen to do the feasibility study for an increase in capacity of the port of Santo Tomás de Castilla on Guatemala's Atlantic coast.
Spanish consortium "Iomm Hitma, Bilbao Plaza Marítima", presented a study on the enlargement of Guatemalan port Santo Tomás.
Officials from the National Port Company are negotiating with Carnival Corporation & Pic for the construction of a new cruise ship terminal in Santo Tomas de Castilla.
The first phase of the remodeling of the Santo Tomas de Castilla Port will be done with a loan from the BCIE (the Central American Bank for Economic Integration) to build new yards for storing containers.
