Dredging Of The Malamocco-Marghera Canal In Venice Port To Start

Dredging of the Malamocco-Marghera canal in Venice port to start

Venice, Italy (PortSEurope) October 2, 2020 – The relevant authority (PIOPP) has given permission to Autorita’ di Sistema Portuale del Mare Adriatico Settentrionale (AdSP – Northern Adriatic Sea Port Authority) to proceed with the dredging of the Malamocco-Marghera canal between Bacino di evoluzione 3 and San Leonardo. Approximately 537,000 m³ of sediment will be excavated with sediments of category B and C will be delivered
to the Tresse Island, while type A sediments will be used to bolster a series of sandbanks. PIOPP has also authorized the excavation of over 6,000 m³ of sediment in the Canale Industriale Oves of Porto Marghera which can be brought back to the draft level of -11 meters. The €15 million order has already been issued for the works. Extraordinary Commissioner, Pino Musolino, said that the works will enable the port to regain the draft lost in recent years and, consequently, to significantly improve the nautical accessibility of the main communication artery of the Venetian port. In other words, the port will soon be able to resume cooperation relationships with international operators that had stalled due to a bureaucratic impasse. This will mean bringing back direct connections and feeder services with the main port hubs of the Mediterranean and the Far East to the port.
