A Port of Trust
The global port activity in 2022 is stable compared to 2021 with 1,538,222 tonnes operated, whereas the taxable volume of ships increased + 4.68 % (3 833 055 m3).
EDry bulk grew by +3.17% thanks to new traffics of minerals attracted in 2021 and handled during the full year of 2022. Ship’s volumes raised + 12.5 %.
ELiquid bulk increased by + 1.83 %, corresponding to 20,000 tonnes additional. Taxable ship’s volumes increased + 6.21 %.
ECereals are down compared to 2021 (-23 % either in tonnage or taxable ship’s volume). The durum wheat production within the port hinterland suffered from a lack of rain prior the harvest.
2023 will be marked by the first activities related to the offshore floating wind industry (6 turbines will be assembled in 2023 and 2024 on the port). New traffics of liquid bulk are expected also, notably in ethanol by the establishment of maritime flows in place of road flows.
