In order to streamline the Port Authority’s technical and nautical departments and improve the service to customers, these departments are being centralised to form a joint cluster.
Three large new facilities will be set up at the site on quays 602-612: a central workshop (for the technical services), a nautical building (for the tug, dredging and crane services) and two floating dry docks with widths of 45 and 55 metres respectively.
Together the new cluster at quays 602-612 will employ around 500 people. At a later stage the site will also house the Shipping Police. The central workshops will then be expanded with an administrative and logistics complex. A budget of 50.1 million euros has been allocated to this centralisation and reorganisation project.
The Port Authority’s administrative departments were already centralised in the new Port House in 2016.
