The historical development of Curaçao has always been closely related to the geographical location of the island and its natural harbors. The natural harbors in particular increase the strategic value of the convenient location of the island outside of the hurricane zone and on major shipping routes in the southern part of the Caribbean. Bullenbaai is among those natural harbors. It is a natural deep, broad and sheltered seaport which, in principle, is suitable for further development as a modern seaport. The deep and sheltered harbor offers potential for floating maritime businesses, such as ship-to-ship cargo transfer, dry docks for very large ships which do not fit into the existing docks and cruise ship maintenance.
Now is the time to capitalize on this natural asset following the opportunities brought forward by the widening of the Panama Canal in 2016. With a well-equipped Bullenbaai port, Curaçao can benefit optimally from these and other regional developments. Another opportunity lies in fields like slops & waste collection and processing (along with reprocessing), and the transhipment of combustibles, expanding the existing petrochemical storage facilities.
