Project Description
The EF-170, also called Ferrogrão, seeks to entrench the new railway corridor of exports from Brazil through Arco Norte. The railroad is 1,142 kilometers long, connecting the grain producing region of the Midwest with the State of Para, ending at the Miritituba Port (in the Northern region of Brazil). The envisaged investments in the venture, a "greenfield" project, are estimated at BRL 12.6 billion, including earth-moving, waterway structures and drainage, railway superstructure, complementary construction, special engineering structures, environmental compensation, expropriation, rail signaling systems and energy, railway equipment, offices and facilities, job site, engineering and rolling stock. It is anticipated that the total railway cargo demand will reach 25 million tons by 2020, a figure that will rise to 42.3 million tons in 2050. The estimated time for the concession is 65 years. Those with potential interest in the project would be trading companies in the agricultural sector that use the corridor for the export of their products.
