Building the port

GROUND IMPROVEMENT

The 36-month design and build construction programme for the new Tangier Mediterranean Port includes work on two breakwaters, one of which is built from 40 precast reinforced concrete caissons in water up to 20m deep.

The project, for client Agence Speciale Tanger Mediterranee (ASTM) also involves 4,577,000m 3 dredging, 660,000m 3 riprap installation and 235,700m 3 concrete.

The consortium that won the work consists of Bouygues Travaux Publics, Bymaro and Italian contractor Saipem.
