BAM Iconsa, a joint venture consisting of Dutch construction firm BAM International and Panama’s marine construction firm Iconsa, has completed the construction of an LNG import jetty and an intake-outfall structure for the Costa Norte LNG Terminal in Colon, Panama.

South-Korea’s POSCO E&C is the main contractor to deliver the Costa Norte LNG Terminal for AES Corporation from the US, one of the world’s leading power companies.


New marine facilities
The BAM Iconsa joint venture’s scope comprised the marine facilities, consisting of the LNG jetty with a 216-metre-long trestle, a 50m x 35m platform, four breasting dolphins, six mooring dolphins as well as the intake and outfall structure.

Sister company BAM Infraconsult/DMC was involved in the design of the new jetty.

Panamas’ first LNG terminal
The Costa Norte LNG Terminal, the first LNG facility to be built in Panama, is located near the Caribbean entrance of the Panama Canal, Colon, Panama. The import jetty is designed to receive LNG vessels in the range of 30,000 - 180,000 m3.

The BAM Iconsa joint venture considered close cooperation with local suppliers and involvement of local workers as a key factor to successfully deliver this project.
