Terminal Rinfuse Venezia, a wholly owned subsidiary of Euroports, was established to play a leading role in scrap metal logistics in Marghera, and it has completed the construction of “an exceptional facility” to handle scrap metals classified as green waste.

The new facility consists in a fenced yard area of 4,200 sq metres with a maximum storage capacity of 30,000t, located in the vicinity of the quay on Molo B. This certified waste management yard is also equipped with a water treatment plant and a mobile system for reducing dust, in accordance with European and Italian environmental regulations. The terminal has a 12m draught, allowing it to service Panamax vessels.

The opening of this facility will allow Euroports to serve both imports from America, Northern Europe and Russia and exports to Turkey, India and China, the company explained. The terminal is connected by truck, rail and barge, not only to its primary hinterland in Veneto and Lombardia, but also to the hinterland via rail up to Central Europe.

The implementation of the project is intended to allow Euroports to increase the range of commodities handled in line with its strategy of growing in the renewables markets.

“We are pleased to have completed this project in a timely manner,” said Marco Corbellini, managing director of Euroports Italy. “This new infrastructure will enable us, as of 2015, to meet the demands from our customers in recent years and at the same time widen the scope of services offered by our terminal while at the same time observing the regulations in a responsible manner.”
