In the port of Trieste, the project to extend the berth for two ro-ro ships at Molo VI pier reached its final step.
The local Port Authority has just approved the executive project and started the restricted procedure through which the EUR 17.4 million worth works will be awarded to the best tender offer.
Two years after the start of the works, the Molo VI pier will have two additional ro-ro berths to serve mainly the regular maritime link with Turkey.
Pier VI is today the base of operations of Emt – Europa Multipurpose Terminals, a company controlled by the Turkish group Ekol Logistics.
The south side will soon also host Timt – Trieste Intermodal Maritime Terminal, 55% owned by the Turkish group Ulusoy and the rest by the Trieste-based group Samer.
