The Port is envisaged as being a “green” port, based on urban climate, urban water management and sustainable energy infrastructure solutions. Along with improving traffic flow in the Port, because of the planned level-separation of railway and road traffic and the joining of port terminals into comprehensive spatial units, certain other measures are needed, such as green system planning. The extensive roof vegetation on top of the warehouses improves heat insulation, decreases rainwater drainage and appears as a green wave. The image of the green moving landscape is augmented by the roofs of 60 hectares of garages, with a 108,000-car capacity, where vineyards are arranged. The garages border the water courses of the River Rižana and the Ankaran Border Canal (ABC), between which a new water connection will be established; a widening of the Rižana bed is also foreseen at the juncture, while the inflow of the Rižana into the ABC will be regulated. The ABC area is characterised by vast reedbeds, approximately 2.7 km long and 70 m wide, and two relatively large wetlands, while the canal itself has been deepened to convey sea water to the area of the Ankaran Bonifika.
