La Spezia, Italy (PortSEurope) November 17, 2020 – Autorita’di Sistema Portuale del Mar Ligure Orientale (AdSP – Eastern Ligurian Sea Port Authority) has awarded a contract to a consortium consisting of Mercitalia Shunting & Terminal srl (parent company) and La Spezia Shunting Railways SpA (LSSR) to manage the “node la spezia “railway area, including the related maneuvering service in the port area and connections with
the Marittima, Migliarina and S.Stefano di Magra stations “. The duration of the concession is five years from the date of delivery of the service, with the option of renewal for a maximum of another three years. The estimated maximum total amount is €38 million ($45 million). The contract will enable the port to exploit the potential of improved rail maneuvers which can be extended from mid-2021 which will link up with the port of Marina di Carrara. In January, the AdSP had sold its shares in LSSR in a privatisation in line with the rules of Autorità di Regolazione dei Trasporti (Transport Regulatory Authority). “With the delivery of the works”, commented port extraordinary commissioner, Francesco Di Sarcina, “we will witness a real revolution of the entire railway structure of the port, from which goods can be transported using trains up to 750 meters long, the current standard. The connections with the stations of Migliarina and S. Stefano di Magra will also be made more efficient and, on the environmental front, important improvements will be obtained thanks to the use of new generation hybrid locomotives”.
