The Tuscan Region revealed this week that the local port authority in Livorno asked the winners of the public tender launched for the Porto Livorno 2000 ro-pax terminal, to close the deal before the end of March.

Last summer Moby (through Sinergest, Moby and Ltm) and Marinvest (MSC group) were officially awarded the privatization procedure aimed at selling a 66% stake in the company for € 10.7 million and in change for € 91 million in the next two to three decades.

Before closing the deal the winners are asking the port authority to clarify whether Porto Livorno 2000 will be or not the only ferry and cruise terminal active in Livorno since there is still pending a legal dispute concerning Grimaldi’s ro-pax traffic handled at the nearby Sintermar Darsena Toscana terminal.
