The Authority of Harbour System of the Tyrrhenian Sea Northern is defining a project in order to improve accessibility of the port of Livorno through an ulterior increase of the traffic bottleneck of the Marzocco, work that would involve the removal of 20 thousand cubic metres of sedime in order arriving to giving to the channel a width of 70 meters (from current the 57 meters) and a depth of -13 meters in the feature in which pipelines of Eni pass.

The harbour agency has specified that the participation would have a cost of little hundreds of thousands of euros and is previewed that is financed by the Lorenzini Terminal and the Terminal Tuscany Dock. The authority has explained that the execution of the work could bring important benefits to the harbour operators and, above all, to the great companies: "if in fact the programmed simulations of maneuver had to give a favorable reply - it has specified the AdSP - the new work of dredging could allow to carry in Tuscany Dock the ships of last generation without more the current limitations than loaded. Just for the sake of to make an example: today the wide naval units 42,8 meters enter to cargo reduced with a draught of 10,75 meters, while the target of project, if reached, stretches to allow a draught of 12 meters, that it means greater levels of cargo".

The project of deepening of the backdrops in proximity of the tightened points more of the access channel, where pipelines of Eni pass, has been in the middle of a technical reunion is turned in recent days with the harbour Harbour-office, pilots and operators.
