€50m investment in Foynes port.

€50m investment in Foynes port
Work will begin this month on the first element of a major restructuring of the port of 
Foynes in Co Limerick. 
It is part of a €50m investment in transforming the port into one of the biggest bulk
 harbours in Europe.
Shannon Foynes Port Company will spend €12m on transforming the 
existing East Jetty area, 
and reclaiming a 3.45 acre section of the port to create a bigger foreshore 
area of activity
 and enable improved bulk discharge times.In time it will create capacity 
for the world's largest cargo
 vessels of 80,000 tonne capacity to travel and unload at Foynes,
 making it one of the few ports
 in Europe capable of handling these massive ships.

The masterplan is part of a bigger picture for the Shannon Estuary as SFPC

 develops its vision for the future and focusses on the positive promotion of the Port
 as a strategic economic driver for the Mid West Region.
