Modernisation of the Port of Dunkirk in France receives EU funding
The European Union will co-finance with €1.3 million from the TEN-T Programme a project to better optimise the ro-ro (roll-on, roll-off) terminal in the French port of Dunkirk, in order to improve efficiency and ensure future growth, EU said in its press release. The project, which was selected for funding under the 2012 TEN-T Annual Call, specifically concerns works to better optimise the space and traffic flow of the Port’s ro-ro terminal. The aim is to build a completely redesigned ro-ro terminal to improve efficiency, smoothen the traffic flow, reduce the stopover time of vessels and increase frequencies. Due to the current terminal's design, the stopover time is two hours with 12 calls per day, which does not provide margin for development or growth. Reducing the stopover time will permit the number of calls per day to be extended to 13 or 14. This development is important to the Port, which the third largest French maritime port, handling around 7,000 ships a year.

Piraeus Port Has ‘Geostrategic’ Edge as Greece Pushes Logistics
Wednesday, 26 February 2014 The Greek port of Piraeus could become one of Europe’s top five container-shipping hubs as the government spurs logistics activities in a bid to kick-start economic growth, said Development Minister Kostis Hatzidakis. Piraeus, now the 11th-largest container-shipping port in the European Union, is expanding as China-based Cosco Pacific Ltd. (1199) operates one of two piers, builds a third and prepares to offer cargo-train shipping to multinational companies including Hewlett-Packard Co. (HPQ:US) and Huawei Technologies Co. “Piraeus could become one of the four to five biggest ports in Europe very soon,” Hatzidakis said in a Feb. 20 interview in Brussels. Greece’s No. 1 port is the focal point of a logistics push by the Greek government as it tries to steer the country out of a six-year recession, battles 28 percent unemployment and seeks to wean itself off 240 billion euros ($329 billion) of international emergency aid.

New Port Rules to boost Gibraltar Port
Minister for the Port, Neil Costa has announced changes to the Port Rules, which regulate the\\ amount of discount on passenger dues for cruise ships calling at Gibraltar. Changes to these rules will be officially announced in the Legal Notice to be published on Thursday. These changes to the Rules follow hard on the heels of the recent announcement by Royal Caribbean International that its megaship, Anthem of the Seas, will call seven times at the Rock in 2015. The measures will be publicised to coincide with the next series of meetings with cruise company executives in Miami later in the year. The amendment allows ‘repositioning’ calls from the Mediterranean to the Caribbean or vice-versa to benefit from a 100% markdown on passenger dues. There will also be further reductions applied, depending on the number of passengers on-board the individual cruise ships, calculated cumulatively in respect of vessels belonging to a particular maritime line.
