The port’s Multicargo Terminal has handled more than 4,3 million tons of bulk and general cargo since 2016, including various project cargoes for the O&G industry.

Açu is a strategic subsea cluster to serve the O&G market and has already attracted various global giants, such as bp, Shell and Equinor to northern Rio de Janeiro state. In addition, the port also holds a natural potential for offshore wind generation, as it is near one of the best regions of wind incidence in Brazil and can already provide offshore wind manufacturing, assembly and logistics.
