ICTSI increases capacities in Rijeka
The Adriatic Gate Container Terminal (AGCT), the Croatian subsidiary of Philippines-based International Container Terminal Services (ICTSI) at the port of Rijeka (Croatia), is set to realise a comprehensive expansion plan in the period up to mid-2020.
In close cooperation with the port of Rijeka authority (PRA), AGCT has drawn up plans for a two-phase dredging scheme with the first phase fully-approved, entailing the dredging of 130 m of quay over its berths 1 and 2. This will facilitate the berthing of vessels with a length overall (LOA) of up to 400 m.
Financing for the infrastructure works has been provided by the EU and PRA, with ICTSI undertaking all the associated necessary investment in quayside and landside handling systems. The second phase foresees additional dredging alongside the 438 m of quay to a depth of 16.5 m. (cd)
