Green light unanimous from the commission of the parliament of the Tuscany to the regional Harbor Authority

Rossi: Piombino instead of Civitavecchia like base of the recovery of "Coast Concord"; it is logical that the ship comes then transported to the port of Livorno

The commission Ambient, Mobilities and institutional Transactions of the regional council of the Tuscany have approved of today unanimously the bill in parliament n. 103 for the institution of the regional Harbor Authority, that it has the objective of a more efficient management of the ports of commercial relief of regional interest, that is of the ports of Viareggio, Lily, Saint Stephen Port and Marina of Field. In particular, the scope is of disciplining in more effective and efficient way the exercise of functions like those of planning of the harbor areas, programming of the public works, planning and execution of the programmed intense activities, release and management of state property concessions.

Connected to the action and always approved of with unanimous ballot, also a resolution that engages the regional committee "to urgently undertake useful political-institutional initiatives to the start of the procedures of redefinition of the borders of the harbor area of Viareggio"; "to attribute, within a year from the performance of the state property federalism, the assets of the harbor Federal property and to redefine the borders of the areas subject to the Harbor Authority, excluding those not specific pertinence".

While the president of the Region Tuscany, Enrico Rossi, has received with favor the "positive signs for the Tuscany" in the within of the plan for the removal of the ship from cruise Coast Concord, been shipwrecked last January to Isola del Giglio, found as a result of an encounter happened yesterday to Rome with the head of the Civil Protection, the representatives of the Coast Cruises and the Micoperi company to which the job with Titan Salvage (of 23 April 2012 will be entrusted).

"I have always followed - Rossi has explained - a line that is reassumed in three words: it wins the best one. And this is worth also for the removal and the dismantling of the Coast Concord: that the more solid plan comes true and with the best environmental guarantees. However - it has observed the governor of the Tuscany - it is I legitimize, as it has recognized the Gabrielli prefect, to ask that the Tuscany, that is taken part in the better way during the aids and in the successive phase, can enjoy the economic fallen back ones of this complex operation".

"Task - it has continued Enrico Rossi - than as base of the recovery can be characterized Piombino instead of Civitavecchia. Then the game of the carpentry job is all, in which they can be involved the New Apuania Yards. At last it is logical that the ship is transported to the port of Livorno, more close. I consider is possible to contemperare the requirements of the reclamation of the ship with those of the Yards Azimut. The operation is complex and of great media impact, creed that its social acceptability is as well as more fort how much the more the territory is involved, also with a fallen back important economic and of job". The president of the Region also has thanked the Micoperi company, that he has decided to devolve the eventual profits to Isola del Giglio: "a choice - it has emphasized - that demonstrates to sensibility and farsightedness".

Specifying that the plan that the technicians of the Civil Protection have estimated as the best one between those proposed is solid, in a position to effectively protecting the atmosphere and guaranteed also in terms of tempistica (the ship could be removed already at the beginning of the next year), "we - it has found Rossi - is trusted, but we ask that the Tuscany is not penalized. We have constituted an institutional committee, composed from the mayor of the Lily, the mayors and the Harbor Authorities of Livorno, Piombino and Carrara and from the Province of Grosseto. We will meet as soon as possible in order to agree what we can propose to the enterprise. Mine travels to Rome have given turned out interesting, have obtained an opening on legitimacy of our demand from the Gabrielli prefect and positive signs from the company".

"Al beyond the responsibilities of the commander Skate - it has concluded the president of the regional agency - is an objective problem of control of the routes. However the shipwreck has not certainly benefited to the good name of Italy. If the removal operation very will be made we will be able to make up for. If there will be job and some development for the Tuscany we will have made ours it must".
