Livorno Port Seeks To Double Cellulose Storage Capacity

Livorno port seeks to double cellulose storage capacity

Livorno, Italy (PortSEurope) October 15, 2020 – The port authority of Livorno is to issue a tender to build a cellulose storage facility which will double the current capacity with a further 10,000 m². The port is managed by Autorita’ di Sistema Portuale del Mar Tirreno Settentrionale (AdSP – North Tyrrhenian Sea Port Authority). The contract is worth around €9 million ($10.5 million) with a
completion date of one year from start of construction. Bids due by December 11, 2020. In July this year, the Management Committee of Autorita’ di Sistema Portuale del Mar Tirreno Settentrionale (AdSP – North Tyrrhenian Sea Port Authority) gave a positive response to the redesign and development of “Porto Prodotti Forestali e Cellulosa”. The plan includes a reorganization of the access road and railway infrastructure, and defines the functional layout of the operational areas of the “Forest Products Hub”, which extends from the Ugione dock to the Molo Italia, and a portion of the area energy from the Enel plant. Cellulose is one of the specialty items stored in the port, which has operators such as MarterNerit, a leading Italian player in forestry product logistics. The company’s 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. Another is Silos e Magazzini del Tirreno of Livorno which carries out third party services such as unloading ships, storage in flat warehouses and silos, handling and redelivery of the imports of cereals, legumes, oil seeds, flour and residues from the processing of plant and forest products (cellulose).
