The Passenger terminal in the Port of Bar is located in the most northern part of the port.Although it is officially classified as a passenger terminal, it is in fact a ferry terminal or a Ro-Pax terminal.
Currently, the depth at the Passenger terminal varies from 4,0 to 5,9 m, enabling small and medium size vessels to berth at the Passenger terminal.
For larger vessels with more draft, it is necessary to enlarge the Passenger terminal. The depths in this area are sufficient to accommodate larger vessels with deeper draft. General objective of pilot project is to improve the accessibility of the Port of Bar. Preparation of the technical documentation is the first step to this goal. Development of the Passenger terminal will enable the development of new passenger and Ro-Pax lines in the Adriatic region.
