Novi Sad will get a new passenger terminal on the Danube by the end of March, in the reconstruction of which DP World Novi Sad has invested 400,000 euros, said the company’s general manager Claudio Negreanu.
“I am most proud of our company’s investment in the renovation of the port, because I am convinced that all Novi Sad residents will also be proud of it. At the end of March, the works will be completed and then we will hand over a new port to Novi Sad, which will bring even more people to this beautiful city,” Negreanu told Tanjug.
The General Manager of DP World Novi Sad, which owns the port in that city, points out that a large five-year investment cycle worth 35 million euros has been launched.
“DP World Novi Sad had large investments in the port last year, and we invested in equipment and other superstructure of the port. We bought a new mobile port crane that has a central location in the port, a fertilizer packing machine and two electric forklifts,” said Negreanu.
We are developing the infrastructure in the port by investing in an additional extension of the vertical quay, in a grain silo, a new container terminal, he said and expressed the expectation that the port of Novi Sad will be one of the most important ports on the Danube.
Thanks to the great efforts of the employees, the year marked by the Covid pandemic 19 DP World Novi Sad ended successfully, with 1.6 million tons of transhipped goods, Negreanu noted.
He also adds that DP World Novi Sad currently employs 150 people in the port, but that due to the increased volume of work and investments, it plans to increase the number of employees, Dnevnik reports.
