Circle S.p.A., a specialized company in the analysis of processes and in the development of automation solutions and for the digitalisation of the port sectors and intermodal logistics, supports Autorita’ di Sistema Portuale del Mar Tirreno Centro-Settentrionale (AdSP – Centre-North Tyrrhenian Sea Port Authority) into the BCLink European project – Genoa, November 6, 2019
In December 2017, a co-financing was granted by the European Commission for the “BClink: MOS for the future” project, for an integration between the logistics chains of the ports of Civitavecchia and Barcelona. The project, included in the context of the Motorways of the Sea, had an initial value of €21 million, financed for €2.2 million in repayment for only the Italian port. In July 2019 a Memorandum of Understanding has been signed between Autorita’ di Sistema Portuale del Mar Tirreno Centro-Settentrionale (AdSP – Centre-North Tyrrhenian Sea Port Authority), Civitavecchia, and the Barcelona Port Authority, strengthening relations between the two ports.
Circle, thanks to its international experience and the expertise gained in managing European projects, supports AdSP Civitavecchia for the whole communication of the project through several actions including the creation of the logo, a dedicated newsletter to be sent to more than 2,000 stakeholders of the sector and the organisation of a specific event. “BClink: MoS for the future” – co-funded by the European Commission in the framework of the “Connecting Europe Facility” (CEF) – aims to improve and implement infrastructures in both ports and thus enhance capacity of the respective facilities, by land and sea.
Thanks to BClink, it has started in Civitavecchia the construction of a new wharf with two new moorings for Ro-Ro ships, while in Barcelona the Contradique wharf, currently used for solid bulk cargo, will be destined for the Motorways of the Sea. The second objective of the project is to facilitate the construction of a new intermodal TEN-T corridor able to connect Spain and Eastern Europe, as well as the ports of the Adriatic coast and Greece.
Established in Genoa in June 2012, Circle S.p.A. is a company with distinctive vertical skills in the port sector and intermodal logistics specialized in consulting and in the development of products for automation and for the supply chain digitalization.
