The port infrastructure, including the stretch of water, covers a total area of approximately 1,300,000 sq.m and it is divided into an evolution basin, 7 docks and 2 docks arranged in parallel along the coastline.
The width of the outer harbor provides refuge in case of bad weather and it allows for a quick and direct landing.
All the quays are about 3 meters high above sea level, except docks 5 (in the first 100 meters measured from the root), 6 and 7 which are about 1 and a half meters high above sea level. The surface of the operational aprons is 160,000 sq.m, behind quay 1 (east quay); 76,000 sq.m enclosed between docks 3, 4 and 5; 55,000 sq.m behind quay 2, the area enclosed between quays 3, 4 and 5 and quay n. 6 and bounded on the south side by the port fence; 10,000 sq.m behind quay 7 (west quay).
The port area is defined by the "maritime state-owned areas and port works included within the limits identified to the north by the mouth of the Malfrancato stream and to the south by the mouth of the Missionante stream" (Ministerial Decree 29 December 2006).
Bodies of water are excluded for the purposes of the SEZ.
The area size included in the perimeter of the SEZ area corresponds to approximately 52 hectares.
