The Marche Region port plan envisages “the construction of wharfs for a total of 1360 meters, with large bays behind them and adequate external defences. The new structure of the external defence works will enable creating a new straight wharf measuring 920 meters, with a seabed of 14 m deep, and the new opening with navigation canals 15 m deep”.
The work on the sediment tank required an investment of around 9 million euros, and enabled achieving the various goals:
- Replace the seabreak wall , that was no longer safe, outside the north quay with rocks.
- Use the mud dug from the beds in the ports of Fano, Numana, Senigallia and Civitanova Marche to restore the safety conditions of the port basins.
- Extend the width of the quay with a new north wharf built above the tank (waterproofed with three layers of special material and covered with solid material).
- Open up a splendid view of the north from the port.
The Regional Councillor for the Environment, Sandro Donati, emphasised that:
“The project envisages different types of work that guarantee high level waterproofing of the bottom and walls of the tank and, therefore, the environmental sustainability of the project”.
