Pilmico inaugurates state-of-the-art, large-capacity pier

Last July 1, Pilmico formally opened its new 50-ton capacity Pier 2 facility at its Iligan complex, a major milestone in the company’s continuing efforts to boost operations as it expands its business in the ASEAN region.

The new pier has a total length of 10 meters with a 6-meter safe draft that will help provide a good level of stability for local and inter-island vessels.

Along with this, Pier 2 has been certified to meet International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) standards and provides vessel mooring and unmooring services with its stateof- the-art marine fenders.

Built by Metaphil, construction of the pier began in early November of 2014.

With a container terminal spanning 1,041 sqm, the new port facility will improve product delivery processing for customers and facilitate better transactions with Pilmico’s key commodity suppliers for raw materials such as soybean meal from the US and Argentina and corn from Thailand.
