SAND BY-PASSING PLANT AT SALINA CRUZ, MEXICO

Modesto C. Rolland

Abstract


The Port of Salina Cruz, in the State of Oaxaca, Mexico is entirely artificial. It consists of an outer harbor and a basin divided by two large wharves on which stand six double warehouses. For a time, jurisdiction on this port was equally divided between the Administration of Free Ports and the Federal Fiscal Authorities, but at present, by Presidential decree, the entire port is under our Free Ports Administration. On the west end of the outer harbor, a dry dock able to handle boats up to 18,000 tons has been operating since it was built. On the same side of the outer harbor, terminal installations of Petroleos Mexicanos handle all shipments of crude oil and gasoline for the Pacific Coast of the country.
