Tangier ro-ro port

Ferry port

River and Maritime works

Morocco, 2007-2009

General description

As part of a design-and-build contract, construction of a roll-on-roll-off ferry port.

MAIN CHARACTERISTICS

Construction of the port and logistics platform consisting of :

- A main breakwater comprising a rubble-mound section with Accropode™ armour and a section of 23 immersed precast reinforced-concrete caissons,

- A secondary rubble-mound breakwater, also with Accropode™ armour,

- 8 berths for ferries with bored-pile mooring dolphins,

- A 42-hectare logistics platform.

 

Using precast concrete caissons not only reduces the environmental impact of the project by reducing its footprint on the seafloor and the volumes of materials used but also shortens the construction time.
