Removed from the port of Palermo also the dry dock from 19 thousand tons

Monti: we can finally accommodate XL ships, now in the conditions to enter the port in complete safety

After the removal from the port of Palermo of the dry dock from 50 thousand tons that last September had started with destination Turkey, today it is the turn of the basin of 19 thousand tons that, after three hours of maneuvers and the assistance of four tugs, he left the direct airport always in Turkey. This is the basin owned by the Vulcano Shipyard that had bought it from the Sicilian Region last year spring.

"We have won a battle - underlined the President of the Port System Authority of the Sea of Western Sicily, Pasqualino Monti - which everyone considered lost at the start: we managed to move the two basins, the one from 50 thousand tons and the 19 thousand one, which disfigured the mirror water of the port of Palermo since the 70s. We are really happy and proud: what happened today is a miracle, the the most complex work among the many completed so far, the whose gestation required four years of commitment. I thank you the Sicilian Region that collaborated with us for allow the elimination of all that useless scrap that invaded the historic basin of the port, degrading it and making it inadequate to accommodate the latest generation ships, finally in able to regain possession of their full ability to maneuver. The satisfaction is double because we got two results that concern both functionality and aesthetics: we can finally accommodate XL ships, now in the conditions of enter the port in complete safety and, at the same time, we have recovered the beauty of the skyline of our airport. A great step forward».
