At the Port of Dos Bocas in Paraíso, in the Tabasco region of South-Eastern Mexico, the state-owned oil and gas company PEMEX (Petróleos Mexicanos) is building the largest oil refinery of its kind in the country, due for completion by the end of next year.

ICA Fluor, the Mexican EPC partner on the project, has ordered from AUMUND Corp., via the Fluor subsidiary Virta Inc., a stacker and a portal reclaimer made by SCHADE Lagertechnik GmbH, a member of the AUMUND Group.
