According to Ports Europe, the Grimaldi Group has received approval from Italy’s antitrust authority to acquire a 100% stake in a Livorno ferry and container terminal.
Terminal Darsena Toscana will be purchased from Gruppo Investimenti Portuali, a company controlled by the investment funds Infravia and Infracapital.
The Livorno port authority has also announced its intention to authorise operations at its primary ropax and container terminal.
Terminal Darsena Toscana covers an area of 389,000 sq m, with a quay length of 1,430 m and with direct road and rail connections.
In addition, Sintermar Darsena Toscana, a 50-50 joint venture between Grimaldi and Gruppo Investimenti Portuali, falls under the same concession and also handles ropaxes.
