In a letter to the minister Clini the Harbour Authority of Trieste restates the perplexities on the rigassificatore

The port - the agency explains - has new and important development plans that at the moment of the beginning of the preliminary investigation on terminal GNL still compiutamente were not formulated

This morning Marina Monassi, president of the Harbour Authority of Trieste, has delivered to the minister of the Atmosphere, Corrado Clini, a letter in which the harbour agency he evidences the impact negative that the realization of the rigassificatore will be able to have on the activity of the port.

“Since in these last months - law in the letter - the Head office for the Environmental Appraisals is analyzing to the definitive plan of the terminal GNL and the relative duct, since the same Direction also has lead the preliminary investigation on the combined procedure of VIA VAS of the new Portuale Town development plan of Trieste, the same Direction will have had a chance for estimate - with the aid of the Commission VIA VAS - than the port of Trieste has new and important development plans, than at the moment of the beginning of the preliminary investigation on the rigassificatore (year 2005) still compiutamente was not formulated”.

The Harbour Authority has evidenced that the increase of the traffics of the port of Trieste is begun in 2011 and is still in course in spite of the complicated economic situation. In particular, the increase recorded in the harbour field of the industrial port (Zaule) of 76.72%, the start of the procedures for the realization of the logistic platform already financed from the Cipe, the increment of the traffic fleeting with the ships from cruise and the ferries that connect with Greece, is placed side by side to the official forecasts of the group SUCH of 500 oil tankers in 2013 ( of 6 December 2012). Forty million tons of crude oil - it has emphasized the harbour authority - that they will call of the port of Trieste first Italian for amount of goods.

“It is our institutional task - Marina Monassi has explained - to evidence the ministry of the Atmosphere that in this phase of development of the only company who the Bank of Italy has defined with the sign “more”, from the operators comes launch clearly a outcry from the alarm that could carry to serious economic problems, occupational and of safety”. The president of the Harbour Authority in fact has remembered that the SIOT (Italian Society for the Transalpine Oil pipe-line) of the group SUCH has specified that “he will not be able to tolerate some impact negative on the installations of own marine terminal during the phase of construction of the rigassificatore and not even in the phases of operation of the same one”. SIOT, with note resumption in the letter delivered to the minister Clini, has evidenced that the society covers a strategic role for supplying of energy for Austria, Germany and Czech Repubblica, for which “could not be accepted no interference that involves delays in the operations of drainage of the crude oil on the wharves in concession”. “It increases - it has found moreover SIOT - the terrorist risk in relation to the presence of structures of such strategic valence”.
