Koper, Slovenia (PortSEurope) April 14, 2021 – Following a decree amendment by the government, the concession area of the Port of Koper has been extended by just over 36 hectares – 21 hectares in the maritime part and 15 hectares onshore. On 31 March, the government of Slovenia amended the Decree on the administration of the freight port of Koper, port operations, and on granting concession
for the administration, management, development and regular maintenance of its infrastructure, which entered into force in July 2008. Offshore, the new concession area will include an access channel for ships headed to Basin I, while the expansion of the onshore part will allow the port to implement some of the projects anticipated in the port’s 2021-2025 development programme, which was approved by the government in February this year. The port concession area extends the 5A landfill (parcels) zone, located in the hinterland of Pier II, by almost 8 hectares. In this area which was filled in the past with material from the dredging of Škocjanski zatok and from Basin I, the port plans to build a storage for cars. Major expansions also include the area where the Ankaran peripheral canal (AOK) extending from the Rižana River to its outlet to the sea is planned to be upgraded, as well as the area to be used for the construction of the embankment and the entrances to the external truck terminal. The port is managed by Luka Koper dd. Copyright (C) PortSEurope. All Rights Reserved. 2021.
