The Technical, Economic and Environmental Feasibility Studies (EVTEA) has as its purpose to evaluate enterprises and serve as a base for opening bidding procedures for the government's assets for new projects, onerous assignment of use, or in the recomposition of the economic-financial balance of existing contracts. They are considered as standard studies, organized by the public administration control and regulation bodies, where technical, operational, economic, financial, legal, and environmental variables are considered in order to identify an estimate of remuneration values for the asset's exploration, taking into consideration an adequate salary for the Port Authority, as well as allowing for a suitable return for the investors.
The Basic Implementation Plan (PBI) must include the group of necessary and sufficient elements, with an adequate level of precision, to demonstrate the technical, operational and environmental viability of the enterprise, and its physical-financial chronogram of implementation. The PBI must also describe the port facilities that will be used by the lessee, whether or not they are part of the lease, either existing or to be implemented by the lessee, as well as their suitability to a series of requirements and their consistency with the services that will be provided.
PBA e Environmental Lincense
The Basic Environmental Plan (PBA) is a legal requirement for the approval of major projects with potential impact on the environment and it details all the measures that must be planned and implemented to control and compensate for these potential environmental impacts. It is essential to obtain the Environmental License, according to the National Environmental Policy (Lei Federal No. 6.938/1981).

The process of transferring an operating Port Terminal's operations, without resulting in the paralization of activities, requires careful planning on the part of the new operator. The lack of this planning at the beginning of the new operator's activities can lead to serious consequences for all users of the Port Terminal. In this context, the Operational Transfer Plan (OTP) is introduced. Pier III has the expertise and experience professionals to assist in the development of the OTP, in order for this Plan to be approved by the competent bodies and help the company to mitigate any potential failure to discontinue the operations.
