The Slovenian port of Koper has completed the extension of the southern part of Pier I and raised its annual container-handling capacity to 1.5 million TEUs. With an investment of EUR45.6 million (US$48.92 million), the extension project began in mid-2020. After the enhancement in 2021 of a new container berth, 7D, which was enlarged to 98.5 meters, two gantry cranes have been installed. A 24,380-square-meter yard has also been developed and become available for use, expanding the overall area of the port's container storage area by 15%.

Koper plans to upgrade the northern part, too. By investing a total of EUR248 million ($261 million) through 2030, it will add a 340-meter-long quay and 118,000 square meters of container storage areas. Through these plans, Koper intends to gradually upgrade its annual capacity to nearly two million TEUs.
