The Port of Koper, Slovenia, has just released a video of the official inauguration ceremony of the port’s new quay.
As reported, the container quayside at the southern end of Pier I in the Port of Koper has been extended by 100 metres.
The extended quayside with a new berth, named Link 7D, is just one part of a large investment as the port continues to build a container storage area of almost 25,000m2 in the quayside’s hinterland.
Construction is taking place offshore, so the entire structure is supported by steel piles. There will be 770 piles in total, with an average length of 65 metres. The new storage areas are expected to be ready in the first quarter of next year.
The total investment is worth €45.6 million; part of the funding was obtained from the European NAPA4CORE project.
In addition, after 2022, the port will start building the northern part of Pier I, which will also be dedicated to containers.
