Ravenna, Italy (PortSEurope) June 11, 2019 – Italian infrastructure investment fund F2i’s plan in the ports sector is wide-ranging. After having acquired the Porto di Carrara SpA group, which owns the ports of Carrara, Marghera and Massa Carrara, the group could focus other Italian infrastructures.
The fund led by Renato Ravanelli has decided to enter the sector of bulk terminals. The last acquisition is the first step towards a more extensive design: to become a platform for consolidating infrastructures that are vital for Italian industrial chains.
Now on the radar there would be entry into other ports. Among them are Monfalcone, Ravenna, Livorno, Savona and Naples. In Monfalcone and Livorno, in particular, F2i could achieve this through other acquisitions: including possibly of Marter Neri, a company whose main activities are linked to the unloading, storing in customs depots and delivery of forestry products (cellulose, paper, wood), metals and other bulk products to important national and international customers. It operates in Livorno and Monfalcone.
The next objective would then be to find opportunities to enter Ravenna, Savona and Naples.
