Geocache Description:

Porto de Águas Profundas

O Porto de Sines é um porto de águas profundas de fundos naturais até -28 m ZH (Zero Hidrográfico) de importância reconhecida para o desenvolvimento do país. Desde 1929 que esta zona está referenciada para que houvesse um melhoramento do Porto, mas só em 1973 se iniciaram as obras de construção, sendo criadas todas as infraestruturas para que se pudesse expandir a longo prazo. Conjuntamente com o porto foi criado um complexo industrial para que se pudesse tirar o máximo partido do mesmo. Actualmente, devido às suas características geofísicas, é a principal porta de entrada de abastecimento energético de Portugal: contentores, gás natural, carvão, petróleo e seus derivados.

Deep-Water Sea Port

The Port of Sines is a deep water port with natural backgrounds to -28 m ZH and of recognized importance to the country’s development. As of 1929, this area was referenced for a port improvement, but it was only by 1973 that the construction works began, with infrastructures being created so that it could expand in the long term. Together with the port, an industrial complex was created in order to take full advantage of the area. Currently, largely due to its geophysical characteristics, it’s a main gateway to Portugal's energy supply: containers, natural gas, coal, oil and its derivatives.
