Vigo, Spain (PortSEurope) February 12, 2018 – The Infrastructure Master Plan will design all the actions that Vigo port needs to carry out until 2030 to strengthen its competitiveness.
Its development has been awarded for €120,000 ($147,000) to the consultancy Proyfe, which in two and a half years must deliver the works in a degree of definition similar to that of a preliminary draft and accompanied by their respective environmental impact studies.
In the coming weeks the first of a series of meetings will be held with the contracted technical team where the port authority will expose several of the priority actions for which they will begin to work. This list, still to be closed, will be led by the conversion of the Bouzas breakwater into a berth.
The working group Ro-Ro Traffic Blue Growth recommended the creation of a new dock in the car terminal. Designed for the berthing of those large car carriers increasingly present in the main European terminals, it would also allow the esplanade to be extended by annexing the now useless space by acting as a simple breakwater.
These two advantages together with the limited environmental impact that its construction would cause, justifies the commitment of the president of the port authority, Enrique López Veiga, for the project. And he does not want to waste more time.
