Piraeus

PROJECT: EXTENSION OF THE PASSENGER SECTION OF PIRAEUS PORT - SOUTHERN ZONE (CRUISE)*

THE NATURAL OBJECT:

The project concerns the extension of the passenger port of

Piraeus towards the southern end, with a scope of creating 6

places for mooring of cruising vessels with a length of approximately

350m, so that the port of Piraeus is converted into the

main cruise centre in the Mediterranean region. The project

includes the construction of exterior port works (breakwaters)

of a total length of 1.500m, interior port works (sill walls)

of a total length of 3.000m, as well as of new overland spaces

with an area of 175.000m2. The expenditure for this project

in accordance with the budget of the study amounts to 230

million €. The need of implementing this project results from:

a) the anticipated cruise increase in the forthcoming years,

b) the progressive transformation of the port of Piraeus into

a home-port of cruises, and c) the continuous enlargement

of cruising vessels that will exceed the length of 340m in the

decade 2015-2025.
