Brazilian subsidiary Arcadis Logos will carry out the work, which is in support of mining operations. Under the contracts, Arcadis will provide project management services for the development of a port terminal in São Luis, in northeastern Brazil. For Arcadis the two contracts represent a value in excess of R$125m (£33.2m) for a period of two years.
Both projects are part of a major iron ore production complex, with a planned total investment of around US$20bn. The logistics expansion projects represent an investment of US$11.582bn.
The two projects comprise the expansion of port and stockyard facilities. Arcadis will provide project management for the construction of a new bulk berth in deep sea waters and the increase of the iron ore stock and handling capacity. At the peak of the projects Arcadis Logos will have a team of 275 professionals working at the sites.
