New container terminal wharf in Rijeka formally opened

A ceremony was held in the northern Adriatic port city of Rijeka on Wednesday to mark the start of operation of a newly-built wharf at the Brajdica container terminal, a project worth about 30 million euros.

The project to extend the Brajdica terminal was financed with a World Bank loan as part of the Rijeka Gateway project aimed at modernising the port. About 320 metres of the new wharf has been built and the storage area has been doubled.

The concessionaire, Jadranska Vrata d.d./Adriatic Gate Container Terminal (AGCT), has invested over 30 million euros in equipping the new wharf and the container storage area and plans to invest a further 35 million in the coming years.

The new wharf enhanced the transport capacity of the port and the Rijeka transport corridor and laid the ground for transport growth and for the positioning of Rijeka as the European Union's first port of call in the Adriatic.

The Minister of Maritime Affairs, Transport and Infrastructure, Sinisa Hajdas Doncic, said he was proud that Croatia had decided to participate in a successful project for the construction of the container terminal, which he said showed the efficiency of public/private partnerships.

Hajdas Doncic said that one of the government's priorities was to develop rail transport, adding that this would ensure good transport connections and growth for Rijeka. He noted that already now Rijeka was becoming an alternative to other ports in the region.

The minister said he was confident that the Rijeka transport corridor would be fully functioning by 2019, which means that the railway line would be modernised. He stressed that this corridor, after becoming part of the EU corridor network, was definitely top priority for the government.

Among those attending the ceremony were Finance Minister Slavko Linic, Rijeka Mayor Vojko Obersnel and representatives of several companies.

Big changes to North Sea shipping lanes

Major shifts on shipping lanes in Netherlands

Quote:
Transport authority Rijkswaterstaat is changing all the shipping lanes on the Dutch part of the North Sea on Wednesday and Thursday.

The change is necessary to make the shipping lanes easier to manage, to make ports more accessible and to create more space for wind farms, Nos television reports.

The new lanes will allow for adjoining areas to be formed where new wind turbines can be built.

The new routes will be in use from August 1 at 02.00 hours and the complex business of changing them is being carried out in just two days. It is the biggest change in shipping lanes ever undertaken anywhere in the world, according to Rijkswaterstaat.

Shipping companies were informed months ago of the changes but are being accompanied by extra Rijkswaterstaat ships during the change-over.

The shipping lanes are like motorways for ships. There are different lanes from north to south and vice versa and lanes to and from the ports of Amsterdam and Rotterdam. In addition, there are 'parking places' or anchorages for ships waiting to enter port.

Are there any forecasts about the incidence in european ports of the opening of the strait of bering routes (due to ice melting) and also the opening of the new Panama Canal route? I believe Algeciras and Giao Tauro will be benefited, because many ships coming from China will no longer use the Suez Canal.

The only restriction would be due to the depth of the channel (ie the dredged depth between the port and the open sea) and the height of the cranes. I'm sure those figures exist out there, but I can't be bothered to find them.. :P

I think too.

P.S.
'Gioia Tauro' is correct name.

Port of Utrecht

along the Amsterdam-Rhine canal, it is an important inland port and can even be reached by small sea-going vessels.
There are plans to use it to avoid delays by traffic jams, to serve companies in the region.
