TEN-T: Genoa port to grow with EU support

Date: 14/04/2015

The EU's TEN-T Programme  will back with almost €2.4 million studies preparing the development of the Port of Genoa in Italy and the construction of a new breakwater near the port. The project will support a larger plan on the port's integration in the European core transport network.

The preparatory studies will cover infrastructural, logistic and economic analysis, as well as the strategic environmental assessment for the port's development. Part of the project will be dedicated to studies for a preliminary design of the Sampierdarena port basin’s new breakwater, allowing the new generation of mega-ships (18,000 - 22,000 TEUs) to enter the port. It will also separate the flows of large commercial ships from the other maritime traffics.

The project contributes to a larger development plan aiming to increase the capacity, efficiency, safety and interoperability of the Port of Genoa. The studies' outcomes will serve as a basis for the Port’s Master Plan and construction of the new breakwater.

The project was selected for EU funding with the assistance of external experts under the TEN-T Annual Call 2013 , priority 'Maritime transport'. Its implementation will be monitored by INEA , the European Commission's Innovation and Networks Executive Agency.

The project is to be completed by 31 December 2015.
