Posted in Port Authority - Director Plan
The Master Plan being developed for the Port of Tarragona for the period 2000-2014 foresees investments totalling 750 million Euros, of which 60% are private investment and the remainder, the investments in port terminals and infrastructure, are to be funded by the Port Authority itself.
The recent economic boom, as well as the change in philosophy that inspired the Port Law 1992, that awarded an important role to private initiatives concerning the exploitation of the Port, has brought about the need for new port terminals to be fully licenced. This has made it necessary to continue with the investment process and create new port spaces to offer to companies that wish to become a part of the Port. Stemming from this comes the need to expand the Levante dock to protect the newly constructed docks; to build new adjoining quays; and above all, to begin development and occupation of the Logistical Activities Area on land belonging to the Port Authority.
