The port of Azua is also known as Puerto Viejo de Azua and is located about 15 kilometers Southwest of the town of Azua. It was built in the 1950’s, and was rarely used until the adjacent LPG terminal was completed in the 1990’s. In 2002, a power plant was built nearby with a pipe-line, of 12” diameter and 600m length, laid between the pier and two tanks of a total of 17,800 cbm capacity. In 2007 a conveyor belt and hoppers were installed on the pier’s western side. Cement clinker is now mainly discharged there.
