ARCADIS Wins Calais Port Deal

ARCADIS, a design, engineering and management consulting company based in Amsterdam, has been appointed as lead engineer for the €675 million extension of the Port of Calais, France, by a joint venture led by Bouygues.

ARCADIS will lead the engineering work from the final design to the detailed design including site supervision during construction. ARCADIS’ fee for the project is €20 million, with the contract running until the end of 2020.

The extension of the Port of Calais comprises a new 3.3km long breakwater.

Phase one includes three fully equipped ferry piers and a service berth for tugs.

The new terminal will be located on a 44 hectare site on reclaimed land which will be equipped for the relevant passenger and freight traffic facilities.

Luc Hellemans, CEO of ARCADIS France, said: “This is a tremendous project to work on. Calais is one of the busiest ports in Europe, and this extension will enable it to meet its capacity demands for a long time to come. We have worked on the development of Calais’ port for many years, so we are very much looking forward to being involved in developing this next generation port.”

ARCADIS will work closely with the internal Design Department of the Contractors, DHI for physical model testing.
