The new Master Plan of the Genoa Port: method and process

 

The drafting of the new Port Master Plan (PRP) of Genoa spans across both a comparison with the approach adopted by the PRP in force (2001) and an analysis of trends in the maritime industry that requires planning on a large scale in a bid to meet the future challenges posed by the advent of the new behemoth container ships.

The guidelines of the new PRP (2012) identify five main objectives: integration in the national logistics network, increased competitiveness, productivity growth, environmental sustainability, added-value to the regional and local area.

Within this framework, public discussions chaired by the Port Authority with the port stakeholders has given rise to strategic guidelines, including a wider port turning basin which received broad consensus.

The new PRP will be designed as a ‘structural plan’, flexible in its implementation phase and promoter of new technologies and best practices in support of the development policies of the port.
