Port Coronel has become the first Chilean port to incorporate this technology which has been fundamental in the early detection of coronavirus cases in Asian countries.
The devices of the Chinese manufacturer, Dahua Technology were placed in the main access and in the logistics centre of cargo. It allows measuring with high precision the body temperature of workers and carriers entering the terminal.
"Our priority now is to be able to keep our operations in a safe way for the health of all workers," said Javier Anwandter, Puerto Coronel general manager.
Chile added new preventive measures that have not affected port activity, which for the most part continues to operate normally.
