MCD terminal of Carrara was delivered the first shorecranes
Newly appointed concessionaire Dario Perioli and Porto di Carrara Spa negotiated an accord which prevented staff redundancy
After having sorted out the problem of staff redundancy brought about after the tender called by Sea Port Authority of Eastern Liguria Sea, won by Dario Perioli, the first two shorecranes reached the new MCD terminal due to cover part of Chiesa and Taliercio quays.
Carla Roncallo, President of the Authority announced the fact, while also adding that, supported by those who confide in the development of Marina di Carrara, the port will enter a new era.
The two 350 tons shorecranes due to serve the new terminal, have been shipped on the RollDock Sky, Dutch unit specialized in heavy loads, which loaded the first one in Antwerp on July 20th and the second one in Marin (North Spain) on July 26th 2018.
Both equipment, a Gottwald HMK260E and a Gottwald HMK6407E with 100 tons capacity each, were discharged on July, 31st and will be installed at Taliercio quay in order to serve Dario Perioli, company holding (as from July 1st) concession on 22,500 square metres area between Chiesa and Taliercio quays, where the new MDCTerminal will be built.
The new terminal's management attended the discharge: President Eligio Fontana and Managing Director Michele Giromini, together with the President of AdSP Carla Roncallo, with Marina di Carrara Territorial branch Manager, Luigi Bosi, and State-property office Manager, Luca Perfetti.
After the adjudication of concession on this area, Porto di Carrara Spa, company controlled by Bogazzi group, historically operating at Talierico quay, appealed to Tuscany TAR against the procedures followed by the Authority to call and adjudicate the tender. Porto di Carrara Spa announced at least 35 staff redundancies.
Nevertheless, according to President Roncallo, after a negotiation among the Authority's representatives and the management of involved companies, Porto di Carrara Spa gave up their original stance, while Dario Perioli confirmed being ready to recruit 12 workers as envisaged in the call for tender. Even Filt-Cgil, Fit-Cisl and Uiltrasporti approved the new agreement.
