The works are part of the plan, launched by the port authority, to modernize the container terminal area and will interest the section of sea in front of the pier of the multi-sector wharf: the bottom deepened by more than 2.5 metres, and the contaminated sediments reclaimed. The works will start in the short-term and are expected to last about one year;

The actions under contract to date amount to EUR 16 million, with the remaining EUR 14 million to be activated upon completion of the first phase. The new building complex will consist of a central body equipped as a multifunctional facility, in addition to four blocks of offices arranged in an “L” shape, topped by a bridge building with underground car parks and depots. The works are slated to begin starting this coming March.
