Port of Koper : Increasing the container yard capacity on Pier No. 1

The first phase of the container terminal extension was completed in June 2021, with the construction of 100 meters quayside extension. We continued with the construction of the new adjacent yard areas which should be finished by mid-2022. In the meantime, we already started to use about half of the newly acquired stacking areas. When completed, the marine terminal will be ready to accommodate 4.000 TEUs more.

The extension of the container terminal is the key infrastructure project of Luka Koper of the last decade. The total investment is worth €45,6 million; part of the funding was obtained from the European NAPA4CORE project. Together with improved processes the extension will allow an annual throughput capacity of 1,5 million TEU. To ensure high productivity levels we also ordered two additional super post-Panamax cranes which should be delivered at the beginning of this summer, while three additional e-RTG cranes are expected in the next months.
