As such, the committee has appointed three commissioners namely Roberto Zuliani, Andrea Crismani, and Matteo Tonon to ensure operations resume at DCT; the individuals are respectively from the legal, law enforcement and business sectors.
“The Authority of Harbor System of the Eastern Adriatic Sea, in wishing good work to the appointed commissioners, reiterates its desire to provide the maximum support and collaboration for the fulfillment of the task entrusted to them,” it said.
“The commissioners […] will have to guarantee the activity of the plant, the protection of the 24 direct workers and related industries, as well as the prompt reactivation of the bunkering service for ships.”
