The port authority (AdSP Ionian Sea) decided to opt for the proposals from Yilport, 100% controlled by Turkey’s privately-owned Yildirim Holding AS and, in parallel, suspend the procedure for "competitive dialogue with the four other bidders/consortia for the site - Southgate Europe Terminal, South Marine Gate, Taras and ATI Taranto Multipurpose Terminal.

Its choice led to protests in the port and Southgate Marine Terminal has resorted to the Regional Administrative Court (TAR) in Lecce to seek the cancellation of the deal and, before that, its suspension under precaution.


AdSP has said that it is waiting for the outcome of the judicial hearing in order to be able to carry out in all urgency all measures needed to make the terminal operational, to arrange the gradual change of contracts of the workers in Agenzia Taranto Port Workers Srl, and to market the terminal.


With respect to the size of the terminal, as previously allocated to the defunct TDT (Evergreen-Maneschi), an investment of €75M in new piling along 1,200m of quay means that the berths can be deepened to 16.5m and the apron to be strengthened to accommodate bigger and heavier cranes.
