Almost for only one terminal: Constantza South Container Terminal operated by DP World Constanta.

DP World was formed when Dubai Ports Authority ("DPA") and DPI Terminals ("DPI") who are the sole shareholders of Constanta South Container Terminal SRL, merged to create a unified new global port operator.

In November 2003, DPI was awarded a long-term concession to operate Constanta South Container Terminal (CSCT) SRL, a brand new state-of-the-art facility located with excellent deep-draft access near the entrance to Constanta Port. The current capacity of the terminal is approximately 1,000,000 TEU and there is sufficient land area for phased expansion to cater to in-excess of 4,500,000 TEU.

Constanta is the largest container port in the Black Sea and with its strategic position at the mouth of the Danube canal, connected via Europe's second river into the heartland of the Eastern and Central Europe.

In 2006 the Port of Constanţa handled a total traffic of 57.131 million tons of cargo and 1,037,077 of TEU's making it the 9th busiest cargo port in Europe. The port is the main container hub in the Black Sea and all direct lines between Asia and Black Sea call in Constanţa. This is due to the efficiency of the Constanţa South Container Terminal (CSCT) operated by Dubai Ports and to the natural position of the port: deep water (up to 18.5 meters), direct link to the Danube. For 2007, the overall container trafic is of 1.411.370 TEUs with a 36% growth.

Almost fur sure we surpassed in 2007 Piraeus Port traffic of containers which registrered 1.386.000 TEU in 2006 (8th busiest port) but its traffic declined in 2007. And we won`t stop here !

Anyway, let`s get back to Transilvania Motorway !

Transilvania highway on G.W.Bush agenda

The Romanian goverment late with payments for works on A3 highway
Preşedintele SUA va fi informat, în timp e va survola Transilvania, că România nu achită facturile pentru autostradă

51 milioane de euro – restanţele pe trei luni ale Guvernului
„Transilvania“ - pe agenda NATO a lui Bush
onstructorul autostrăzii „Transilvania” îşi leagă speranţele pentru continuarea lucrărilor la şoseaua căreia i s-a tăiat panglica în iunie 2004 de prezenţa în România a preşedintelui SUA, la summitul NATO. Surse din Ambasada SUA au declarat pentru „Gândul” că oficialii Bechtel vor încerca să-i arate lui George W. Bush autostrada, dacă acesta va survola Transilvania. Preşedintele Bush este posibil să fie însoţit de Riley Bechtel, preşedinte al companiei şi director executiv, şi Zaccaria Adrian, directorul operaţional.

Daca preşedintele american nu va survola Transilvania, atunci ambasadorul Nicholas Taubman îi va prezenta fotografii cu stadiul lucrărilor şi îl va informa că, în ciuda promisiunilor guvernanţilor români („Nu are Bechtel capacitate să lucreze pe cât avem noi bani să dăm” – Călin Popescu Tăriceanu), compania se află în situaţia de-a sista lucrările, deoarece nu i s-au achitat facurile pe decembrie, ianuarie şi februarie (51 de milioane de euro).

Deocamdată, Bechtel lucrea*ză pe datorie – avansul pe 2008, 132 de milioane de euro, fiind cheltuiţi pentru dotări, achiziţii de materiale şi utilaje. Potrivit lui Bogdan Sgârcitu, responsabil cu Comunicarea al Bechtel România, dacă autorităţile nu vor rezolva problema banilor, compania va opri lucrările pe la jumătatea lunii aprilie.

În situaţia în care bugetul pe 2008 a fost epuizat, Guvernul are mai multe variante financiare. Fondul Naţional de Dezvoltare, creat din banii obţinuţi din privatizări şi destinat infrastructurii, nu a fost încă accesat, lucru care-i nemulţumeşte pe oficialii Bechtel. Ar mai fi varianta banilor europeni, dacă autostrada „Transilvania” va fi inclusă într-un nou coridor continental – proiect care s-ar putea finaliza însă numai în 2010, dar şi un credit extern – din cauza procedurii de achiziţie, acesta n-ar putea fi accesat mai repede de 4 – 6 luni.

Ministrul Transporturilor, Ludovic Orban, a declarat pentru „Gândul” că în perioada 15 aprilie – 1 mai va propune guvernului un proiect de hotărâre privind finanţarea autostrăzii din Fondul Naţional de Dezvoltare. Compania Naţională de Autostrăzi intenţionează să dea în folosinţă în acest an 25 de kilometri din autostrada „Transilvania”, de pe tronsonul 2B, Câmpia Turzii-Gilău.

Borbely declares that Bechtel will complete 45 km of highway this year

Business Standard
25 martie 2008


Quote:
Romania’s Minister of Development, Public Works and Housing, Borbely Laszlo, declared Tuesday in Targu Mures that the Bechtel company will complete 45 kilometers of highway this year, namely the Campia Turzii-Gilau section, according to a NewsIn correspondent.

“Bechtel’s work last year was quite good. This year Bechtel was given an advance. Last week the Ministry of Transports expense ceiling was raised by RON 100 million. The Ministry’s budget will surely be supplemented in the coming months. Bechtel must complete 45 km of highway this year.

An advance of €130 million was given and I hope that within one month the supplement will also be clarified. Bechtel requested €400 million for work this year. I am convinced that Bechtel is also eager to work and the government has committed to pay,” added Borbely.

The Minister indicated that an understanding has been signed by Bechtel and the National Roads Agency according to which the builder commits to repair anything it destroys.

The number of pillars amazes me. Do they want to keep the inclination as low as possible, like on German autobahns? That'd be cool, otherwise I see no reason for them to build so many short pillars where it's obvious they could just go with the land.

Every motorway should be built this way ... no hills and valleys allowed

I'm no expert, but the number of pillars or suspended sections is approaching the ridiculous. The area is pretty flat. Seems like a waste of money.

If you look well at the pics, you'll see that the area is full of hills and valleys like pretty much all of Transilvania. This may require the viaducts, since a highway is not like a simple road where cars can go up and down at steep angles. Also, it may be the case that digging entire hills to soften the angles may be more expensive than raising pillars.

Don't get me wrong, as nebunul, I too think that every motorway should be built this way. It's just that I'm surprised by so many pillars... I'm surprised because that's a good sign. I mean... you know... you're Romanians too.

ROMANIAN MOTORWAY

Bechtel is driving forward on the biggest highway project now under construction in Europe.



When Romania celebrated its induction into the European Union in January 2007, its president described EU membership as “the road of our future.” Romania’s economic hopes are also ingrained in an actual road now under construction—the Autostrada Transilvania.
A sleek new national highway will bring the country’s infrastructure in line with that of its new economic partners. The road will likely become the preferred route between the Black Sea and Western Europe.
Bechtel is helping to make the road map a reality. In June 2004, Bechtel and partner Enka broke ground on the $2.2 billion Autostrada Transilvania project, a central piece of Romania’s plans for a national highway system. They are designing and building a 258-mile (415-kilometer), four-lane highway along with 300 bridges, 73 overpasses, and 19 interchanges.
So far, 14 archaeological teams have retrieved artifacts during excavation. Digs around Cluj revealed a 6,500-year-old settlement with huts and 3,300-year-old colored pottery.
Bechtel and Enka have worked hard to reuse as much excavated material as possible. What started as a necessity for construction became an important part of the community affairs program when the team moved soil and planted trees to create a new outdoor recreation area for the rural community of Valisoara.
The first 33-mile (53-kilometer) segment of the motorway is scheduled for completion in February 2010, with other segments opening over the following three years. Analysts are talking about collateral investments equivalent to the motorway’s $2.2 billion cost by 2013, and the country is gearing up for an expected 30 percent increase in tourism.
For Romania, the road ahead looks bright. For more information, see the September 2007 Bechtel Briefs.
