||The project consists of an investment programme aiming at increasing the capacity and improving the efficiency of a container terminal of the Port of La Spezia operated by the Promoter, LSCT, under a concession granted by the public port authority.
The project is located in a port on the North West coast of Italy, which is part of the core Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) network and included in the Scandinavian - Mediterranean Corridor. The project consists of an investment programme aiming at increasing the capacity and improving the efficiency of a container terminal operated by the Promoter, under a concession granted by the public port authority (Autorità di Sistema Portuale del Mare Ligure Orientale). The works are in accordance with the current overall port master plan. The project includes two different phases. The first one will extend the existing terminal yard by building a new quai and reclaiming additional land to the sea. Still included in this phase is the pavement of this new area, as well as the required handling equipment, as necessary to make it operational. The second phase will revamp the current operational setting of the terminal yard, also by replacing the existing equipment and increasing its automation. Also considered in the project is the deepening of the berth pockets and the expansion of the related rail terminal. The project is therefore, expected to increase the current capacity as well as enhance the operational efficiency and sustainability of the terminal.
