THE TERMINAL 109/110 HAS BEEN INAUGUARATED
THE NEW CRUISE TERMINAL OF VENICE
Thanks to its dimension of 14.000 square meters divided on two floors, Terminal 109/110 is the widest cruise facility of the Mediterranean with a standard – never reached so far – of 2 square meters of available surface for each passengers waiting to embark during the peak phases, fully limiting the anthropic pressure for each operational level.
The widest terminal of the Mediterranean dedicated to a single cruise ship, Terminal 109/110 has been inaugurated today, Tuesday 15th April 2014. A former warehouse has been refurbished to become an independent Passenger station located in Tagliamento Quay, in order to fluently serve two cruise ships simultaneously berthed in front of Terminal 107/108 and in front of the renewed Terminal 109/110, respectively.
The refurbishment was initially lead by the architect Maurizio Paveggio and then by the architect Vincenzo Di Donato who has endorsed furniture and interiors.
From the technological systems to the air-conditioning and the fire systems, from the elevators to the escalators, all the structural refurbishment interventions have followed a philosophy based on energetic savings and eco-sustainability, emphasizing the industrial archeology aesthetic, thanks to its elegant and minimal furniture.
Thanks to its dimension of 14.000 square meters divided on two floors, Terminal 109/110 is the widest cruise facility of the Mediterranean with a standard – never reached so far – of 2 square meters of available surface for each passengers waiting to embark during the peak phases, fully limiting the anthropic pressure for each operational level.
“The terminal 109/110 represents the last step of the requalification plan of the Marittima area that has been transformed from an old commercial port to a modern passenger terminal which stretches over a surface altogether of more than 260.000 sq. m. of which 93.000 sq. m. of covered surface, has a water basin of 123.700 sq.m. (Marittima Basin), 8 passenger terminals, 5 car parks and more than 3200 meters of quays”, declared Sandro Trevisanato, Chairman of VTP. “An industrial reconversion, made by VTP with the collaboration and coordination of the Venice Port Authority, giving back to Venice and its citizens an important productive area, offering a restyling of these areas more and more strategic for the local economy, bringing the Serenissima at the top levels of the international cruise industry, renovating and reinforcing the relationship between Venice and the sea. The new terminal brings along with the other modern and multifunctional facilities in the Marittima area, designed and refurbished taking into great consideration power saving and ecosustainability together with security standards for users. The multifunctional characteristic of the new terminal guarantees a leading role also in the trade fair and congress sector, reinforcing the productive vocation of Venice.”
The refurbishment project, carried out in 12 months with an overall investment of 12 million Euro, follows the most qualified conservation standards, totally respecting the previous structure, under the control of the Venice Port Authority and of the Commission for the Safeguarding of Venice. From a logistic point of view the new terminal represents a clear improvement of the viability of the Marittima Area, not only for the operators and passengers flows but also for the baggage handling, thanks to a conveyor belts system, routing bags and luggage directly to the service quay, through a tunnel located under the facility.
