Over EUR 44 million to be invested in Constanta Port upgrade

Upgrading infrastructure works worth more than 44 million euros (over RON 200 million) will be conducted at Constanta Port, following a decision taken by the Government on June 12. "The finalization of the intervention works will increase the safety of port operations and stability of docks in the south of the port and it will increase the capacity of Constanta Port, in general. Deepening the basin and navigable channel from the current level of -7.00 metres to the level of -9.00 metres will provide access and docking of the ships of up to 10,000 DWT," reads a release issued by the Government. The total value of the investment amounts to RON 215,863,000 and is funded from the state budget, through the Ministry of Transport, up to the amounts approved annually for this destination, from Title 56 "Projects with funding from post-accession non-repayable foreign funds." The Government has thus adopted the decision on approving the technical-economic indicators for upgrading the infrastructure of Constanta Port.
