Name of the Project
Nuova Diga Foranea.

Location
Port of Genoa, Italy.

Project Owner/s
Western Ligurian Sea Port Authority.

Project Description
The project entails the construction of a breakwater, about 450 m beyond the current barrier for the Port of Genoa. The breakwater will widen the transit and manoeuvre areas for ships within the port area, guarantee direct access to the port’s terminal facilities and provide a wide turning basin for container ships. At up to 400 m to 450 m in length, these ships are double the size of those that the port can currently receive.

The breakwater, known as “Nuova Diga Foranea”, will be unique, owing to its scale and complexity.

Phase A’s foundation will be created using about seven-million tonnes of rock, up to 50 m under water, making it one of the deepest in the world. It will cover a combined 6.2 km.

Potential Job Creation
The project will create more than 1 000 direct and indirect jobs.

Capital Expenditure
The project is estimated at €928-million.

Planned Start/End Date
Not stated.

Latest Developments
None stated.

Key Contracts, Suppliers and Consultants
Webuild, Fincantieri Infrastructure Opere Marittime, Fincosit and Sidra (construction contract).
