Venice, Italy (PortSEurope) September 10, 2020 – Dredging works at the port of Venice and Chioggia are continuing according to plans of Autorita’ di Sistema Portuale del Mare Adriatico Settentrionale (AdSP – Northern Adriatic Sea Port Authority). The project has received funding of €26 million ($30.74 million) from the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport. Dredging has already started at the entrance to the port of
San Leonardo in March to reinstate earlier draft depths for vessels. Most of the sediment (10,000 m³) will be delivered to the Tresse Island and “Class A” material will be used to nourish of local salt marshes. As regards the other planned works, the AdSP is aiming to complete all technical and administrative activities necessary to proceed with the excavations.  In Venice, local authority approval is awaited for the project to excavate approximately 640,000 m³ of sludge from the Malamocco-Marghera canal; the project relating to the San Marco Petroli dock in the southern industrial canal has just received the green light; the pre-work for the excavations of dock ME10, Darsena della Rana e del Bacino 4 have been completed; the characterization and analysis of the sediments in the vessel-manoeuvring area for access to Darsena Irom is in progress. In Chioggia, the first phase of examination of the sediments, which are almost all class B, was completed and a project aimed at restoring the draft of some berths.
