Royal Haskoning: “Optimization will generate significant savings”
Final layout of the new Port of Venice onshore-offshore container terminal reduces equipment costs by 25%, saving the Port millions of Euros.
International engineering and project management consultancy Royal HaskoningDHV has completed the final layout of the new Port of Venice onshore offshore container terminal. The layout and equipment optimization will generate significant capital and operating expenditure savings for the Venice Port Authority.
This is written in the last press release by Royal Haskoning, one of the technical Advisor of the project.
Captain Antonio Revedin, Director Strategic Planning and Development at the Venice Port Authority said, “The integrated design of the onshore-offshore terminal and the water transfer system have resulted in performances that are equal to those of the best container terminals in the world. In addition to making this significant cost saving, the way in which the terminal will operate will bring numerous benefits. We will be able to accommodate the latest ‘super-sized’ container vessels, greatly reduce travel time, operate at full capacity without double handling, and manage with maximum flexibility. We are now in a very good position to begin the next phase of the project.”
