The consortium of which Fincantieri Infrastructure Opere Marittime is part, led by Webuild and also including Fincosit and Sidra, will build the new breakwater of the Genoa port for a total initial asking price of 928 million euros. Fincantieri Infrastracture Opere Marittime is part of the consortium with a 25% share.
Ordered by the Western Ligurian Sea Port Authority, the new breakwater will allow safe access to the port to container ships up to 400-450 meters long, double the size of those passing today, tailoring the Ligurian port to the requirements of the main shipping companies.
The construction works, consisting of two phases – with the first already financed – are part of the extraordinary recovery action plan of the Genoa Port. They will be co-financed by the government with resources from the Complementary Fund of Italy’s recovery and resilience plan (NRRP) and will benefit from the Aid Decree (“Decreto Aiuti”).
