    Albanien renoviert seinen grössten Hafen in Durres

    Albania to renovate port of Durres

    The Albanian government on Monday (November 20th) launched a 40m-euro international tender for the construction of a new terminal and other projects at Durres, the country's largest port. Funding is being provided by the EBRD, the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the Albanian government.

    Work is expected to start at the beginning of next year, and to be completed by 2008.

    The new terminal would have an annual capacity of one million passengers. Meanwhile, two other terminals and the connecting infrastructure are being renovated, along with other improvements to port services -- including the implementation of tight security measures.

    "The terminal will create all the conditions for hundreds and thousands of Albanians and tourists to travel to Italy and other countries of Europe through the sea, and for those who enter Albania from the port. The terminal [provides] the needed perspective for the future," Prime Minister Sali Berisha said.

    According to official data, the port was used by 704,000 passengers during 2005, an increase of more than 21,000 passengers year-on-year.

    There are five ports in Albania open to international traffic: Durres, Vlora, Saranda, Shengjin and Himara -- with a total average of about 5 million tonnes of cargo annually. Of these, Durres handles roughly 90% of the country's international maritime trade tonnage, and 65% of the country's total export and import trade.

    The government is implementing a master plan for the development of the port -- aiming to improve capacity and efficiency. A Durres Industrial Park, planned for a location just outside of the city, is being promoted by the EBRD. The government also has invested state funds to modernise the ports of Vlora, Saranda and Shengjin.

    Situated at the western end of Pan-European Transport Corridor VIII, Durres has an essential role to play in the economic development of the country and the Western Balkan region, says EIB.


    It is also important for tourism. Durres is considered Albania's gateway -- not only for the arrival and departure of ships carrying goods, but also for passengers, as it is connected daily with ferries to the Italian ports of Bari and Brindisi.

    40 Millionen Euro werden in den grössten Hafen Albaniens investiert, damit man Ein- und Ausreisen schneller abfertigen kann. Die Lagerhäuser, Büros etc. wurden schon voriges Jahr von einer kroatischen Firma renoviert. Ebenso hat man neue Fahrzeuge für den Gütertransport eingekauft.

    Neben der Modernisierung wird in der Nähe des Hafens ein grosses Industriegebiet mit allerlei Firmen enstehen, was zusätzlich Geld reinspülen sollte.

    Nach Ansichten der EU spielt der Hafen von Durres eine grosse Rolle für den gesamten Westbalkan ebenso für das Land selber.

    International investment, loans secured to rebuild Albanian port

    24/05/2007

    With a total of 40m euros in investments and loans, Albanian plans to modernise its biggest port. Durres is responsible for almost 65% of the country's import and export trade.

    To make Albania's main port of Durres one of the major points of trade, as well as a gateway to the region and beyond, the international community has approved almost 40m euros for the port's reconstruction.

    Last week, Minister of Finance Ridvan Bode and EBRD representative in Tirana Murat Yildiran signed an agreement for a 14m-euro loan. The 15-year-long loan, with a three-year grace period and low interest, is just part of the 40m euros invested by the EU, the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the Albanian government.

    The plan for the port includes building a new passenger terminal and improving other infrastructure. The project has three main components -- new investments, rehabilitation and general construction supervision. Expected completion is in October 2010.

    "This project brings the total EBRD portfolio to 90m euros for this sector in Albania," Yildiran said. He added that the EBRD hopes to increase its credit portfolio in the country to 120m euros by the end of the year.

    Transport Minister Sokol Olldashi said the new project aims to increase the volume of goods and passengers passing through Durres. It now processes 3m tonnes of goods and 700,000 passengers annually. From January to April, the trade volume at the port increased 14% year-on-year.

    Durres is also important to the tourism sector. It is considered Albania's gate -- not only for the arrival and departure of ships carrying goods, but also for passengers -- as it is connected daily with ferries to the Italian ports of Bari and Brindisi.

    There are five such ports open to international traffic: Durres, Vlora, Saranda, Shengjin and Himara -- with an average of about 5m tonnes of cargo a year. Durres is the biggest -- handling roughly 90% of the country's international maritime trade tonnage, and 65% of the country's total export and import trade.

    As the western end of the Pan-European Transport Corridor VIII, Durres has an essential role to play in the economic development of the country and the Western Balkan region, the EIB says.
