Ronco-Canepa combi-terminal extension and renewal of the ancillary intermodal infrastructure


The Action concerns the land reclamation of the sea basin between the Canepa and Ronco piers and the building up and revamping of port infrastructures ancillary to the new terminal, in particular a new rail connection. The Action aims at creating a new multipurpose terminal, built and equipped with higher technical and operational standards, in order to respond to the new market requirements.


The main result expected by the Action is a significant expansion of the port supply. The new combi terminal will be characterized by a unique berth line of 640 metres able to accommodate one 8,000 TEUs containership or at the same time two container ships with a capacity up to 5,000 TEUs taking advantage of depth equal to 15 metres.



State of progress on 31 December 2014:
The procedure for land reclamation of the sea basin between the Canepa and Ronco piers was completed and preliminary works for upgrading the port's basic infrastructure are ongoing.
