The seaway will have seven routes from Vigo

Plans by Acciona Transmediterránea for the seaway project to run seven routes weekly from Vigo harbour were announced by the company’s president, Juan Sáez to the Regional Minister for Territorial Policy, María José Caride, at an interview held to analyse the Atlantic project to connect Spain and France by waterway. Acciona Transmediterránea backs Vigo as their candidate to be the leading port with special prominence, since it is the only one of the four candidates – Vigo, Algeciras, Saint Nazaire and Le Havre- that will operate seven routes weekly, as was disclosed by the Regional Territorial Policy Ministry.

In this way Vigo will be the port with the largest number of arrivals and departures, which will make it “the most important centre of operations for this seaway along the South Atlantic façade of Europe since it will be the point of departure and arrival of all of this maritime traffic”, explains the regional minister.

Caride expressed her satisfaction with this project to Juan Sáez, since it represents “an excellent opportunity for both Vigo and Galicia”, and the fact that it was “from the very beginning promoted” by the Xunta. The regional minister trusts that the Atlantic port will be the winner, with subsidies provided by Spain and France to the tune of 30 million euros, because, as she puts it “it will help a peripheral community become closer to Europe and revitalise the existing economic activity between Spain and Portugal”.
