Co-funded 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: 

  • Progetti Europei"E-BRIDGE Project", submitted in the Connecting Europe Facility call for proposals 2018 and selected to receive EU co-funding, it has the full support of the Italian Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport and the port shipping community. The objective of the project is to implement a series of intangible assets related to the introduction in stages of the complete digitalization of data exchange in the Port of Genoa, with the aim of mitigating the impact of the collapse of the Morandi Bridge on port activities. E-Bridge integrates seamlessly with the activities developed by the Port in relation to the optimization of incoming/outgoing heavy vehicles, automation of port and terminal gates, installation of buffer zones at the service of the freight. The project groups together the Italian Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport, as co-ordinator, the Western Ligurian Sea Port Authority, UIRNet, provider of the National Logistics Platform and Circle SpA, in addition to the local port community and RFI, the Italian Railway 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.
