Port of Gijon
Description
The port of Gijón is one of the main seaports of the Atlantic Arc and is the leading port for solid bulk movement in Spain. Its facilities are suited to new market requirements in terms of depths, quays and storage areas and provide services with the best quality standards.
The Port of Gijón embraces commercial activities as well as nautical sports, tourism, fishing and shipbuilding, and covers an extensive coastal strip from the present-day marina in the city center (old local port), to the El Musel and Aboño area.
Currently, the Port of Gijón is Spain’s main bulk carrier port and one of the most important of all the Atlantic Arc, thanks mainly to imports of coal and iron ore from countries such as the United States of America, Brazil, Russia, Canada for the steel plants and thermal power stations. Also important are the inbound shipments of liquid bulk, as well as a wide variety outbound shipments including cement and general merchandise, represented mainly by container transport.

One of the main expansions of the port took place between 2005 and 2010 with the construction in El Musel of the Enlargement Project, which, starting from Cape Torres, has allowed 170 hectares of land to be gained and 175 hectares of calm waters, approximately doubling what had been carried out since 1892-1893, while at the same time increasing the draft to more than 23 meters deep.

The evolution of the Port of Gijón has been a constant in recent years as regards its different services, facilities and commercial activities, and its traditional services have seen the addition of fishing, cruise ship traffic, and water sports, while not forgetting shipbuilding (shipyards).
The commitment of society today to sustainability is driving the entire economy towards a more sustainable development.

For this reason the Environmental Strategy of the Port Authority of Gijón (PAG) is focused on making the Port of Gijón an environmental reference port at the national and European level, thus improving its competitiveness in the sector and providing the port with the added value of sustainable management.

The fundamental pillar for the development of this Environmental Strategy is its Environmental Policy defined in the framework of its Environmental Management System, which allows it to identify its most significant environmental impacts and act on them by continuously improving the environmental management of the organization. Among these, air quality is for the Port of Gijón, main bulk carrier port of Spain, a priority objective.
