Bruges is more important and significant larger than Ostend. Ostend is not known as an industrial port but a ferry port towards the UK. I’ll post some screenshot’s of Google earth later on

It seems like they're not all on the same scale. Maybe you could switch the scale bar on and post versions with the scale bar in view?

project financing
Motorways of the Sea
new terminal in Venice


It was unveiled today a project to build the new terminal dedicated to the motorways of the sea area to be built in Fusina (Marghera). The project conceived by a consortium of companies Venetian is the winner of the notice (subject to project financing), which provides both the making of the work that the management - a concession for the next 40 years - commercial services and tourism and services in support of the terminal for the short sea shipping (Motorways of the Sea).

The consortium is called "Venice New Port" and consists of: Construction Company Ing E. Mantovani SpA, Adria Infrastructure SpA CO.VE.CO Coop. SpA, Thetis SpA, New Fusina Engineering Scarl and Venice Passenger Terminal S.p.A.

A set of companies specializing in the development of port infrastructure and port logistics operators, particularly in the management of ro-ro and ro-pax (ferry) they undertake with a total investment of 193 million. They will build it in the next five years and manage (for 35 years) 2 docks with four docks that can accommodate four ships simultaneously, and a logistics platform with new buildings and warehouses, yards and port parking area of 36 hectares. The new terminal for the first five years will be able to handle 850 trains and 110 ferries that will increase after a year with a growth rate of 25% to reach an annual capacity of 1000 ferries. The quays overlooking the canal Malamocco-Marghera will enjoy backdrops - 12 meters. Compendium will be developed within the port activities and services for storage and handling goods which will add buildings dedicated to commercial services, offices and accommodation. Thanks to the implementation of this new port infrastructure and logistics also the city of Venice can derive many benefits. By 2012 it all of a ferry that now passes through the historic center enters the lagoon through the mouth of Malamocco. This translates to 500 fewer vehicles per day passing through the Liberty Bridge and ferry over 400 in less than a year passing through the Giudecca Canal.

Ro-ro and ro-pax, one of the areas that contribute to the development of the port of Venice, in 2009 has reached 1 million 800 thousand tons of goods handled. The lines are already active between Venice and the Greek port can be considered, in effect, a European transportation infrastructure that fully meets the EU guidelines concerning transport within the Union and it is now open real prospects of development not only with Greece and the ports of Piraeus, but also with the countries situated on the southern shores of the Mediterranean such as Egypt, Libya, Israel over the east coast of the Adriatic.

TRANSPORTATION
Confetra: increasing traffic
IN THE FIRST HALF OF 2010


Restart the transport of goods in Italy. The data recorded in the first six months of 2010 show, in fact, a positive trend in the sector even though volumes are far from those of 2008.

This, in short, a photograph of the freight in the first half of 2010 detected by the Centre Confetra studies showing a recovery at 2 speeds: High intercontinental trades (Asia and South America) and more braking in European traffic.

This situation reflects, in particular the progress of individual modes of transport: in fact flying air traffic (+15% in volume and +25% in sales) and maritime transport (+13% to +15% of turnover).

Only partially recovered the lost volume in 2009, the full load road transport +2% and +7% Domestic and international.

ITALY
Data on shipping containers are very good with regard to ports of destination (+16.2% Genoa, La Spezia (January-May) +18.1%, Trieste (January-May) +9%, Livorno + 5.6%) while continuing the decline of transhipment (Taranto, from January to May, -16.7%, -17% Gioia Tauro). Rail traffic finally gets a +8.6% versus the first half of 2009.

"After almost two years of negative indicators, the data traffic of goods in the first half of 2010 show a strengthening global economic recovery, but with Europe as laggards, says Piero Luzzati, Director-General of Confetra indicators have to improve hand hand you move away from Europe. "

The shadow factory vessels
A dozen cattle were recovered from the Harbour between Taormina and Aci Castello. Experts: "The memory could have occurred on a vessel in transit, the severed head back to the owner to avoid using chips



CATANIA (Italy) - come from ships 'farm' cows found dead on the beaches of the Ionian coast between Taormina (Messina) and Aci Castello (Catania). Are now a dozen cattle, all 'pieces' of Friesian recovered from the Harbour.

Some animals were found with severed heads, presumably to "prevent back, through the identification chips to the owner of livestock," suggests Angela Carbone, Veterinary Health Authority Provincial Giarre.

"It's possible - observe - that the deaths of leaders has taken place on board a ship and the crew has undone cows thrown into the water after having their heads cut off to prevent trace the load.

From the Harbour of Catania however confirm the finding of a chip that would lead to a farm in France. Investigations are underway to verify the ship on which farm the cows were and whether they fell or were thrown overboard.

Port recovery
Valencia test
to tow Spain


The port of Valencia will again become the locomotive of the Iberian harbor. After an uncertain start in 2010 (+0.17% in January), import-export traffic (except for transhipment) through the main Mediterranean port for containers in July grew by 18.9%. The transhipment, which still represents 49.3% of all containers handled by the airport has grown by 10%. Taken together, the airport has seen last July 11, 96% of TEU (container units corresponding to a pit 20 feet) higher than the same month in 2009, ie 2,361,737 TEUs.

The ro-ro traffic has increased by 15.84%, with 1.2 million tonnes. The data covers the whole district under the administration of the Port Authority of Valenciaport, namely the ports of Valencia Sagunto and Gandia. The closest Spanish thus winning the duel with Barcelona at a distance, the other major airport on the peninsula which is contended for some years the scepter of the main container port in the Mediterranean. Between January and July, total tonnage handled, Valencia has grown by 7.8% to 36,000,000 tons, while Barcelona has been the pole (+0.47%), with 24.93 million tonnes. The two airports are also well allied with Algeciras, in FERRMED project that wants to build a railway network over the Pyrenees to reach markets in Central Europe, channeling some of the traffic from the Far East. In recent days there was a meeting between the presidents of chambers of commerce of the two cities to strengthen and revitalize the project legmai Mediterranean corridor through Spanish airports. Meanwhile the project goes to the "third crossing" of the Pyrenees. Last week we met in Zaragoza the Asamblea General Constituyente de la Agrupación Europea de interés para la Travesia Económico the Central Pyrenees (Pirineos AEIE-TGC), the joint Spanish-French group that has launched studies for the realization of 'high rail capacity between Spain and France. Regarding the origin or destination of the goods handled in the first place to Valencia there is China, with 4.48 million tonnes, according to the domestic market (3.31 million) to Brazil third (2:16) then, almost on par with the latter, Italy (2.11 million tonnes) and fifth in the United States (1.9 million), the only ones for which both decreased compared to 2009.

Another fast-growing sector in Valencia, although still far from the levels of rivals Barcelona, is cruising. In the first seven months of the year there was an increase in cruise passengers by 74%, for a number of admissions amounted to 131,000 passengers, which offset the decline in ferry (-9.5%).

At the height of the "peak season", the import of European goods in containers, which dry and reefer, is experiencing a considerable increase compared to the volumes of the same period last year. According to data from Container Trade Statistics (formerly ELAA), shipments from Asia rose in July to 1.22 million TEU, 22.4% more compared to 993,000 TEUs in July 2009.

Across the Atlantic and Latin America, volumes are substantially the levels of a year ago, although there was a substantial increase in European exports.

In the coming days I shall also represent the smaller Belgian ports of Gent and Ostend. The last one is not a key player as industrial port but as ferry port (not for freight but only for passengers) to the UK, Denmark and Sweden.
