Land resources within the Port area / industrial and logistics zones
EThe port development plans to propose 70 hectares of land for investors willing to implement industrial or logistics sites. Projects must carry significant maritime flows. The land resources are close to the deep-sea terminals. They are of great interest in optimizing the approach of goods in terms of costs, time and more generally to benefit from the best possible maritime interface. The “rail-port” area will facilitate rail shipments in the heart of the new infrastructure. In addition, Port-La Nouvelle is 10 minutes from the SIGEAN Motorway Entrance. The access road that connects the A9 to the Port bypasses the SIGEAN urban area for more safety and one part of the road is a double highway. Project owners will finally find in Port-La Nouvelle an ecosystem committed to new ways of producing and consuming energy. The SEMOP aims to build a hub that cares about a modern transition to a decarbonised world.
