Co-financed projects

The Port Authority intends to take advantage of new  funding opportunities offered by the European Union to develop infrastructure and services, following the  course  already taken by the Ports of Genoa and Savona through the  CEF (Connecting Europe Facility), Horizon 2020 and FESR (European Regional Development Fund).

Therefore, over the next three years the activities of the EU  projects that have already been launched will be guaranteed: 

  • "INES - Implementing New Environmental Solutions in the Port of Genoa", selected in 2015 for European co-financing ( 20% of eligible costs), consists of the installation of a shore-side electricity facility  in the Prà–Voltri port terminal to reduce pollution emissions, specifically  CO2 and NOx, and noise pollution from moored ships.

  • "Vamp Up - Vado Multimodal Platform Intermodal Connections Optimization and Upgrading", presented at the CEF 2015 call for proposals, benefits the Port Authority and the Vado Ligure Inland Terminal  VIO s.p.a. across the implementation of  studies and works and the improvement of  multimodal and telecommunication connections in the hub of Vado with the transport network.

  • "GAINN4MOS" and "GAINN4CORE", both co-financed by CEF funds, will develop engineering  studies to assess the viability, in  ports taking part in the initiative, including Genoa, of new LNG infrastructures  and carry out  pilot projects for the supply, storage and distribution of natural gas. Other countries participating in the two projects, in addition to Italy (through the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure), are Spain, France, Portugal and Slovenia. The two initiatives will complement the project “GAINN4MED”, recently financed in the CEF 2016 call for proposals.

  • "GRAMAS", financed by the cross-border cooperation programme Italy/France "Maritime", links the ports of Piombino, Savona and Toulon  in the common goal of creating a forecasting and monitoring system for bathymetric variations in the port basins. Thanks to sensors and weather stations, the system will be equipped to produce bathymetric cartographies regularly updated on 3D maps to allow greater understanding of the causes of variations in the water level.
