Terminal Isonzo 2, realizzato in soli 18

mesi, sono stati appaltati per 8.833.000

euro i lavori di ristrutturazione del fabbricato

109/110 con destinazione ad

uso crocieristico.

L’edificio, costruito nel 1931 per il

deposito di cotone e finora impiegato

solo come magazzino per lo stoccaggio,

occupa una superficie di 14.000mq

per un altezza di 12 metri. La ristrutturazione

garantirà una ulteriore stazione

passeggeri autonoma sulla banchina

Tagliamento, per poter servire in maniera

più fluida la presenza contemporanea

di due navi ormeggiate rispettivamente

di fronte al Terminal 107/108

ed al rinnovato terminal 109 /110. Inoltre,

entro l’anno verranno completati i

lavori di ristrutturazione del piano terra

dell’edificio 117 che porteranno ad una

superficie totale di 5220mq. In arrivo

anche due nuove passerelle a misura

delle navi di ultima generazione che

verranno collocate rispettivamente la

prima, in primavera al terminal Isonzo

1 e la seconda in inverno al Terminal

109/110.

Altra innovazione, il progetto di consegna

dei bagagli presso ogni terminal

in luogo dell’attuale tensostruttura centrale,

al fine di razionalizzare i flussi di

traffico dei passeggeri.

A NEW PASSENGER BOARDING TOWER FOR VENICE

The MBT innovative multi-purpose tower for boarding and disembarking

passengers from cruise liners was recently patented by V.T.P. Engineering a

Treviso company started up in 2011 in which Venezia Terminal Passeggeri is

a shareholder. The MBT project originates from an analysis of the functional

deficiencies of current boarding gangways in relation to the ever greater dimensions

and passenger capacity of the new cruise ships. The MBT facilitates

the embarkation and disembarkation of passengers (especially those

with reduced mobility) from cruise ships using lifts to link the dock, terminal

and vessel regardless of the height of the boarding ramp thereby giving passengers,

dock operators and crew a number of alternative and safer routes.

The MBT has limited overall dimensions on the dock leaving the ship-side

free for luggage delivery and other activities.

VTP Engineering is also working on a “cold ironing” project for cruise

ports close to urban areas. The project which was presented last May in

Potsdam and is considered one Europe’s best projects of its type.

Roberto Perocchio MD of VTP stated: “Our plan for improving the standards

for welcoming passengers and operators proceeds and in 2012 will see

better use of spaces to guarantee improved flow of embarkation and disembarkation.

Our programme together with the indisputable attractiveness of

Venice makes our terminal one of the world’s most competitive”.

Following the opening of Terminal Isonzo 2 after only 18 months work, contracts

for euro 8.833.000 have been awarded to restructure building 109/110

for cruise use. The 12 meter high storage building covers 14.000 sq meters

and was built in 1931 as a store for cotton. The rebuilding work will create

a dedicated passenger station on the Tagliamento wharf and will speed up

servicing the two ships which can berth in front of terminal 107/108 and the

rebuilt terminal 109/110. In addition the ground floor of building 117 will be

extended to 5.220 sq meters. New gangways for the latest ships will be fitted

at Terminal Isonzo 1 and Terminal 109/110 respectively in spring and winter.

New projects also include handling baggage in individual terminals instead

of the current centralised system.
