In Rio Grande, Serra Morena operates ship loading and unloading for bulk goods, fertilizer, and agricultural grain, as well as transporting logs (separately or in a sling) wood chips for biomass or pulp, and wood pellets in break book vessels. It is one of the largest port operators in the Port of Rio Grande, meeting its own demand and handling cargo for clients.
The company has two industrial units located in the Industrial District of Rio Grande/RS. - Avenida Antonio João Bianchini, s/n., with 20,500 m2 of constructed area and storage capacity of up to 150,000 tons of fertilizers in 20 boxes, as well as two mixers with a capacity of 120 tons/hour, with mechanical reception and an aerial belt to supply the boxes. - Rua Engenheiro Carlos Firmino Schmidt Rover, nº. 5015, in the Industrial District, with 20,000 m2, with storage capacity of 90,000 tons of fertilizers, with two mixers with a capacity of 90 tons/hour. This unit has a bulk warehouse (agricultural grain), with a capacity of 80,000 tons, fully automated with reception tipper and shipping tunnels.
At this port, Serra Morena has a prominent position as the main shipper of grain destined for export, especially soybeans and corn. The receiving and storage structure is complete and has several simultaneous reception points with dumpers for trucks and semi-trailers. Current static storage capacity is 200,000 tons. Once the ship arrives, the loading plank reaches 12,000 tons in 24 hours. In 2015, a new 13.5 meter draft was approved, allowing the mooring of Panamax ships, a situation that attracted the main global grain players. To meet this demand, the company is structured, both in terms of warehouses and equipment: As in the port of Rio Grande/RS, in Imbituba/SC, the company is qualified to ship timber in logs, as chips for biomass or pulp, and can do its own chipping.
