Expansion of the most important shipping vein Slovenia is in full swing

Monday, 15 September 2014

A port in the town of Koper has always been an important shipping vein of Slovenia, directly affecting the development of the economy and the country's tourism. In 2013, the port has received a record 600,000 TEUs and 65,434 passengers. Currently its area is estimated at 270 hectares, 48.4 hectares of which are covered warehouses, and 109.6 acres is an open storage area.
In 2014 the plan of expansion the port was adopted. According to the plan the capacity of the port is to be expanded for that it will be able to accept heavy vessels with the capacity of up to 10,000 TEU ships.
The first phase of expansion supposes dredging of the seabed, which will be completed in September this year. The Dutch company Van Oord, which began working three weeks ago with pumping sludge, has already done half the planned works. During the deepening of the sea bed the most advanced technologies were applied; the pumped ground was moved to the area of Ankaran’s Bonifika.
The deepening of the first pool will cost 2.5 million Euros. Seabed will be dredged up to 14 meters. This investment will enable vessels with a capacity of 10,000 TEU vessels to enter the port. At the same time, other European company deepens the channel itself for the ships to have an easier access to the facility.
Until the year 2020 it is planned to construct a 100-meter Quayside and new railway lines, which will take up to 1 million containers.
In the long term the expansion of the 1st northern pier is planned to throughput the vessels with 1.4 million containers on board.
It should be noted that the total investment estimates at 240 million Euros. Half of the investment is aimed at expansion of container terminals. The project is financed partly from the funds of the company itself, partly from the EU funds, as well as loans.
