A new tender procedure is now open for the extension of the Garibaldi dock in La Spezia Container Terminal, Contship Italia Group said in its latest announcement.
The tender provides the continuation of the development project that involves the Garibaldi area, including executive design, work supervision and bookkeeping and co-ordination of health and safety in both design and execution stages, Contship said.
“The procedure has been opened to realize new aprons for the terminal’s day-to-day operations as a container and multipurpose terminal,” according to the official announcement.
La Spezia Container Terminal (recently nominated “Best Container Terminal in Europe” at the AFLAS awards hosted by Asia Cargo News) is planning to further improve handling capacity from 1,4 to 2,5 million TEUs.
Contship said that major improvements are also planned for the rail connectivity, which will be pushed to handle 50% of the total throughput in order to better face the constant rapidity, efficiency and sustainability needs of the port’s customers.
