Work barges will be deployed for the transportation of construction materials. Marine surveys will be carried out on completion of construction works.

Safety boats will be deployed in the vicinity to warn other craft to keep clear of the working area.

Heavy lift and semi-submersible vessels

The first paragraph of the circular concerning an additional charge of 50% of canal tolls in case of one of which is 250 metric tons or more, the ship is required to be equipped with self-lifting crane with capacity of 250 tons and more.

COUNTRY: Brazil
PORT: Paranagua
Change to procedure for ongoing/outgoing clearance

Effective from 12 August, Paranagua Federal Police Department’s Immigration Department will only issue ongoing/outgoing passes for ships arriving from or sailing abroad after all crew members’ duly completed entry cards (TARJETAS) are submitted.

This is without any prejudice to other official procedures regularly applied.

To date, ships’ clearances procedures have been completed whilst the vessels lie in the port, without halting the operations. Frojm 12 August,  ships will be accepted in only after the document is delivered to the police. Any failure to prepare the necessary documentation will cause delays to operations.
