Ereğli, Turkey

Karadeniz Ereğli is a city and district in Zonguldak Province of Turkey, on the Black Sea shore at the mouth of the Kılıçsu River. It has a large natural harbour, located in the lee of Baba Burnu and therefore one of the few geographically attractive places for a harbour on the western Black Sea coast of Turkey. Ereğli is a very lively coastal town, well developed due to the presence of the steel plant. Fishing is a major commercial activity in addition.

Las Tablas, Panama

Las Tablas is the capital of the Panamanian province of Los Santos. It is located a few kilometers inland from the Gulf of Panama on the Azuero Peninsula. According to folklore, the town takes its name, which translates as “The Boards”, from planks of wood salvaged from a Spanish ship used to construct the first houses in the town. The ship had run aground on the coast near the city’s future location after fleeing Panama City before the arrival of Henry Morgan.


Malaga, Spain

The Port of Málaga is an international seaport located in the city of Málaga in southern Spain, on the Costa del Sol coast of the Mediterranean. It is the oldest continuously-operated port in Spain and one of the oldest in the Mediterranean. The port is dominated by imports, principally an annual throughput of nearly 2 million tonnes of break bulk within a total annual throughput of 3.1 million tonnes. Major imports include cement, clinker coal, cereals, grains, petroleum coke and fertilizers.

Soyo, Zaire Province, Angola

The port of Soyo is a port, subdivided into three areas, whose exploitation is the responsibility of three different companies. The first area was granted to the industrial Kwanda Base lda, which handles most of the port activity. The second area is the private terminal of Petromar, and handles oil & gas related cargoes. The third part is under the jurisdiction of the commercial port of Soyo, whose activities are largely outweighed by the first in terms of cargo volumes.
