Activity & Interventions

The Gruppo Ormeggiatori del Porto di Ravenna was founded in Ravenna in 1973 and was converted into a cooperative on 1 August 1992.

Thanks to the agreement between the Mooring Men Italian Association ANGOPI and our colleagues from the port of Rotterdam KRVE, Mooring Men from Ravenna, together with other Italian port’s Mooring Men take part in highly skill demanding off-shore operations abroad.

Among the others, taking part in the towage of the Adriatic LNG Terminal from Algeciras to Porto Levante Italy, surely must be mentioned.

Together with the Mooring Groups of Chioggia and Venice we deliver mooring services to the LNG Carriers berthing at the Adriatic LNG regasifier.
