PMO Surigao Conducts Workshop on the Formulation of Private Ports Zone Plans

SURIGAO CITY, Surigao del Norte,  Aug.18 (PIA) --As an added service to private ports operation under the jurisdiction of the Port Management Office of Surigao, a guided tutorial/workshop on the formulation of the Zone of Significant Port Interest (ZSPI) Plan was conducted at the Port of Surigao.

The preparation and submission of ZSPI Plan indicating in detail the boundaries of both land and water areas situated on the proposed port facilities, is required under PPA Administrative Order No. 05-2022 or the Revised Policy on the Development, Construction, Operations and Maintenance of Private Ports. 

“Considering that the preparation of ZSPI Plan involves technical knowledge and inputs, PMO Surigao saw it fit to assist private port operators operating in our area of responsibility,” said Acting PMO Surigao Manager Froilan Caturla. 

Facilitated by PMO Surigao’s Engineering Services Division led by its Acting Manager Lawrence Lyle Cagas and Acting Principal Engineer Carlson Martinez, the ZSPI Plan workshop was conducted in two batches, and covered the design parameters, formulation of the ZSPI Map and other requirements.
