Handover of Casablanca’s new fishing port
12 May 2017 - Other - Morocco
March 2017 saw Dumez Maroc (VINCI Construction International Network) hand over the new fishing port in Casablanca, a project forming part of a total redevelopment of the port area.
Undertaken on behalf of Morocco’s ports authority, this complex operation – the biggest project ever implemented by the company – enabled Dumez Maroc to deploy all its technical expertise and its skills organisationally and in the management of a particularly hostile environment (heavy swells).
The task involved transferring the city’s old fishing port, too small and in poor condition, to a new, larger and more modern site.
The works included the creation of a main breakwater (655 lm), a secondary breakwater (535 lm), two quays (323 and 145lm) and 240 lm of floating jetties, as well as the dredging of the trenches, the inner basin and the access channel.
