Peru - Callao


DP World Callao is a greenfield terminal in the port of Callao, approximately 15km from the capital of Peru, Lima. 
Construction of Phase One of DP World Callao began in April 2008. The terminal commenced operations in May 2010, and comprises a 21ha facility (mostly reclaimed from Callao harbour) with two container berths and a quay length of 650m. The construction project included dredging the harbour channel and vessel turning basin to a depth of 14m (formerly 11m), with 16m depth at the DP World terminal. Phase II of the DP World Callao project is designed to add a further 310m of quay line and an additional three gantry cranes.

DP World Callao is a state-of-the-art facility, transforming container operations at the Port of Callao. The modern cranes and deeper water have resulted in strong demand to use the new facility - allowing shipping lines to deploy large, gearless vessels in place of the previous requirement for ships fitted with cranes. The increased capacity will also provide the opportunity for Callao to increase its role in the handling of transshipment containers, positioning Callao to become the premier transshipment port for South America's West Coast.
