EU Programme Co-Funds Capacity Studies on Port of Dublin

31st October 2014
EU Programme Co-Funds Capacity Studies on Port of Dublin

#EUdublinport – According to INEA, almost €2.5 million will be co-funded from the EU TEN-T Programme for studies into the capacity development of the Port of Dublin.

The studies are to improve the freight traffic connection to the main rail and road axis linking Ireland to the UK and continental Europe.

The project covers a set of preparatory studies for the construction works of the Alexandra Basin Redevelopment (ABR) global project with the aim to increase the port's capacity and adapt it to customer needs, mainly in the freight sector.

After the completion of works the port will be able to accommodate larger ships and provide them with multipurpose berths for multiple transport modes.

The studies include planning, environmental impact assessment, hearings on the project, economic and financial assessment, preparation and application for all relevant permits, licenses and consents, as well as procurement of detailed design services and documentation for the construction phase.

The project was selected for EU funding with the assistance of external experts under the TEN-T Multi-Annual Call 2013, priority projects.

Its implementation will be monitored by INEA, the European Commission's Innovation and Networks Executive Agency.

The project is to be completed by the end of 2015. For more about the INEA click this LINK.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
