APM Terminals lays foundation stone for new maintenance workshop
APM Terminals Valencia laid the foundation stone of a new 2,145 square metre maintenance workshop yesterday. This is a key milestone in the Stronghold Project and will enable the terminal to support increasing volumes and combine maintenance and asset repair tasks in a single building on the Levante quay. This will improve working, health and safety conditions for the terminal's employees.
"The event we are celebrating today not only symbolises the start of the construction of the new workshop, but also the beginning of a new era, which will give us strength as a team," said Fernando Rodríguez de Colmenares, Head of Asset Maintenance at APM Terminals Spanish Gateways during the event.
The construction of the new workshop will take 9 months to complete and represents an investment of 3.1 million euros. In terms of design, the new workshop building is inspired by a stack of metal containers, with one container for each of the planned uses, including access control, offices, canteen, changing rooms, auxiliary rooms. The main building will be 12 metres high and accommodate 10 check and repair workstations.
The Stronghold Project is an ambitious terminal reorganisation project which will improve terminal access efficiency and optimise various part of the terminal, including maintenance, value-added services for refrigerated goods, external and internal vehicle parking and stacking areas.
