Economic rationale / Business Model

- The Strategic Plan of the Port of Huelva is the global framework in which this project is included. It sets forth a series of actions that will be carried out during 2012-2022 period, with
an intermediate revision phase in 2017. The total budget of the Investment Plan approved in the Corporate Plan is M200€.
- According to the forecasts, the main asset of the Port of Huelva (PoH) is expected to experience a significant growth including on the number of containerised goods to be dealt with. In order to catch the great development opportunities, investments are needed to adapt the infrastructure: Thus, the intermodal improvement of the port and, in particular, the actions aimed at improving the intermodal adaptation to bulks and containerised goods of this project will provide a response to the development needs ser forth in the national context.
-The project has a very interesting cost-benefit analysis associated. All container traffic has been taken into account to calculate the revenue forecasts. These revenues would mainly come from the port facility use fees although the activities of the terminal concessionaires have been included in these estimates."
