Koper Port Gets EUR 36M Loan for Infrastructure Projects


The 15-year loan with a three-year moratorium, which was agreed on Monday, is not secured with collateral, port operator Luka Koper said in a press release on Wednesday.

The company said that the deepening of the seabed along the port's container terminal, finished in mid-2014, made the port accessible to larger container ships. As of 2015, the port will be directly connected to the Far East with three container lines instead of two.

The expected arrival of large ships with the capacity of up to 10,000 container units requires from the port operator to adjust the seaport infrastructure and transshipment equipment, Luka Koper explained.

The operator is already preparing project documentation for an extension of the first pier by 100 metres, and a majority of investments in the coming years will focus on the container terminal, which remains the stable of the port's development, the company said.
