In April 2013, CHEC began work on the reconstruction and rehabilitation of the San Vincente Terminal after it suffered severe damage from an earthquake on February 27, 2010. The port is located in the Bio Bio region of Chile, 13 kilometers north-west of the city of Conception. Valued at US$75 million, the project will involve the construction of some parts of the site and the repair to others with the extension of the Esplanade to the North of the port and other work.
