New Promotional Office Of Trieste Port In Budapest And Expansion Plans

New promotional office of Trieste port in Budapest and expansion plans

Trieste, Italy (PortSEurope) October 21, 2021 – The Port Authority of Trieste and Alpe Adria have opened their first promotional office abroad in Hungarian capital of Budapest. This follows an increase of train cargo between land-locked Hungary and the Adriatic port. Società Alpe Adria S.p.A. offers projects of coordinated management of intermodal transport services. Alpe Adria is equally co-owned by the Port Authority of Trieste, Friulia
(the Friuli Venezia Giulia regional investment company) and Mercitalia Rail (part of the state railway group). The Port of Trieste is managed by Autorita’ di Sistema Portuale del Mare Adriatico Orientale (AdSP – Eastern Adriatic Sea Port Authority). The first intermodal service between the Pier VII of the port of Trieste and the railway terminal of Budapest was launched in 2005. It is managed by Rail Cargo Austria. In 2016, 300 trains transported 20,000 TEUs. In 2019 there were 1,049 trains on the route. Works will start on the extension of the quay of Pier VI in December, coinciding with the arrival of new dock cranes capable of adequately serving the mega container ships expected in the coming months. Initially, Pier VII will be extended by 100 meters in width with a further 100-meter extension into the sea planned. After the works have been completed, Pier VII will be able to host two ocean-going vessels of the largest size available today (over 20,000 TEU) at the same time. Hungarian publicly-listed company Adria Port invested €100 million ($116 million) in a multipurpose terminal on 32 hectares in the Noghere, 12 km south from the port of Trieste. Trieste Marine Terminal (TMT) is the concessionaire of the container terminal in the port of Trieste, and part of the T.O. Delta SpA group. Copyright (C) PortSEurope. All Rights Reserved. 2021.
