By being established in a region of very rich biodiversity - the Saracá-Taquera National Forest, a sustainable-use protected area, Porto Trombetas is surprising not only for its natural beauty, but also for the quality of life, safety and complete infrastructure it provides for its residents and visitors.
Our community is made up by people from Pará and several other Brazilian states. We share cultures and value collective well-being. The housing structure at Porto Trombetas is complete and has basic sanitation, hospital, school, a commercial area, services, banks, leisure spaces, restaurants, airport and other logistic infrastructures - all within walking distance from work and housing spaces.
In order to provide accommodation for its employees and contractors, MRN offers 916 houses to those who come with their families to live in Porto Trombetas, in addition to 58 living quarters with collective rooms to those who need less space.
On average, 6,000 people can be accommodated in the townsite with comfort and quality of life. Residents and visitors enjoy the exuberant nature of the Saracá-Taquera National Forest and the Trombetas River, which surround the district. The townsite has security, paved roads and spaces for outdoor sporting activities, in addition to light, organized traffic.
Adding to all this, the community features a cultural mix from various parts of Brazil, with people attracted by the professional opportunities in one of the largest mining enterprises in the Amazon.
The educational services in Porto Trombetas are concentrated in the School Professor Jonathas Pontes Athias, which offers early childhood education, elementary and high school.
The school is managed by Fundação Vale do Trombetas (FVT) - a non-profit institution created in 1997 for this purpose - which since 2020 has been run by Sistema de Ensino Equipe.
The facility serves the children of the employees of MRN, of the companies and institutions that provide services in Porto Trombetas, in addition to children and adolescents from neighboring communities.
The district residents have their own hospital, with 22 beds, in addition to 24-hour emergency care.
Medical specialties include: cardiology, psychiatry, general surgery, urology, anesthesiology, orthopedics, traumatology, pediatrics, gynecology, obstetrics, occupational medicine, neurology, dermatology, vascular surgery, endocrinology, ophthalmology and otorhinolaryngology, as well as laboratory tests and diagnostic imaging. Roughly 600 surgeries are performed each year.
The Porto Trombetas Hospital (HPTR) also provides services in the areas of dentistry, physiotherapy, nutrition, orthoptics, speech therapy and psychology. Managed in co-partnership between MRN and Pró-Saúde Associação Beneficente de Assistência Social e Hospitalar, the HPTR was established in 1997 and is a reference for more than 6 thousand people, with outpatient medical care and free emergency service to the local population.
With a history of frequent investments in service quality and infrastructure, the hospital also has its Clinical Analysis Laboratory certified by the National Quality Control Program, the largest provider of proficiency trials in Brazil. The hospital’s laboratory has a capacity to perform over 70,000 emergency and routine complementary exams per year, such as ultrasound scan, endoscopy, radiology, spirometry, campimetry, tonometry, audiometry, electroencephalogram and brain mapping, electrocardiography, Holter, MAPA, ergometric test, echocardiogram and polysomnography.
The Surgical Center has rooms equipped with modern equipment for videolaparoscopy and videoarthroscopy surgery, including shoulder, elbow and knee. If necessary, the Intermediate Treatment Center has equipment that guarantees the maintenance of the patient's life until being transferred to a reference center.
Besides the hospital, MRN offers: an outpatient clinic in the commercial center of the port, where residents of the riverside communities are assisted; a nursing facility in one of the mines; a central outpatient clinic in the mining area, for medical, dental and emergency care. The company also develops a permanent program of preventive and assistance medicine with the riverside population.
For moments of sports, leisure, culture and quality of life, the townsite community relies on Mineração Esporte Clube (MEC). The club has 60,000 m2, without considering the parking lot and the movie theater.
It has a soccer field, athletics track, multi-sports courts, sand courts, squash and tennis courts, sports gymnasium, a water park, gymnastics rooms and music, besides a large hall with stage, dance floor, bar and saunas.
Among the activities offered, there are also classes of ballroom dancing, weight lifting, body combat and pilates.
