La Spezia, Italy (PortSEurope) June 14, 2021 – The Port of La Spezia has increased the draft of the ships that use the Molo Fornelli Est of the port by up to 14 meters. Currently, the maximum operating draft is 13.7 meters. Following the dredging program carried out by Autorita’di Sistema Portuale del Mar Ligure Orientale (AdSP – Eastern Ligurian Sea Port Authority), and increasing the
draft to minus 14 metres, La Spezia Container Terminal (LSCT) is now able to offer advantageous docking conditions that will bring further benefits to its customers, significantly increasing the attractiveness of the port and increase traffic. It means that ships can carry additional cargo on board. Today, on the Asia-Mediterranean route, ships employed have nominal capacities ranging from 14,000 to 15,000 TEU, and it is the intention of some shipping consortia to increase it to 16,000 TEU. The decision to increase the draft was made after a meeting of: CV (CP) Giovanni STELLA (Commander of the Port Authority of La Spezia ); the CC (CP) Giulio COLOTTO (Head of the Navigation and Port Security Service); the 1st M.llo NP Francesco LONGOBARDI (Nostromo del porto); Clc Roberto MAGGI (Guild of pilots of the port of La Spezia); Alberto SANDRE (Tugs Reunited Spezzini); Walter MARIOTTI (Head of the Mooring Group of the port of La Spezia); Davide VETRALA (MLO Port System Authority); Walter CARDACI (LSCT SpA); amd Alessandro PELLEGRI (LSCT SpA).
