New Port with a sheltered area of 100 hectares in the outer area of the estuary of El Ferrol. A Coruña. Spain
The contract, which was developed in 2 stages, involved the construction of a new port sheltered by the Prioriño Chico cape in Ensenada de Caneliñas. It is the first outer port of Galicia.
The port has a sloped seawall measuring 1,067 metres long, cemented on natural terrain, a coastal pier measuring 1,515 metres long with a depth of 20 metres and an auxiliary pier measuring 145 metres long and 10 metres in depth.
In this first stage, the coastal pier also serves as an enclosure and containment of the esplanade for the fillings and consists of 30 prefabricated reinforced concrete caissons with a depth of 20 metres.
The works of the second stage involve a 656-metre long extension. To this end, the prefabricated reinforced concrete caissons, aligning the existing coastal pier, are used to integrate 1,515 metres of pier with a depth of 20 metres. Similarly, the construction of an auxiliary pier for multi-purpose berthing is being considered, perpendicularly oriented to the coastal pier, measuring 145 metres long, made of prefabricated concrete caissons and blocks; and finally enabling the esplanades attached to these piers.
To provide more capacity and to ensure the operations of the facilities for maritime traffic purposes
It doubles the number of square meters of esplanades and available berthing.
Promoting the economic development of the estuary.
First outer port in Galicia.
