Within the range of infrastructure works underway to upgrade the Passenger Port of Genoa (Milan, Italy), quay wall renovation at Ponte Dei Mille East starts to take shape.
Plans are afoot to equip the cruise berth for the newest vessels, thereby providing Stazioni Marittime with an additional mega-ship pier, alongside Ponte Dei Mille West which can accommodate the ultra-large passenger vessels following the recent dredging works.
The new project foresees the extension of the existing quay, the building of a new embarkation terrace, and cruise ship facility upgrades guaranteeing strict safety standards.
New quay development is expected to extend the 290-m Ponte Dei Mille East to 380 m, in order to cater for liners with LOA length 330 m (1083 ft).
The final step in the completion of the redevelopment of the Passenger & Old Port of Genoa is the building of a new quay line (at Calata Santa Limbania) alongside the Hennebique (former grain silos/200 m long building, currently the focal point of a large-scale regeneration program). The quay (to be enhanced by 12 m in width) will in part serve the adjacent cruise terminal and will also provide mooring for leisure boats.
