Jan De Nul Part of Port of Calais Extension

The Dover Strait Ports Company has awarded the design-build contract for the Port of Calais extension project to a consortium formed around Bouygues Travaux Publics (the lead company), Colas Nord-Picardie, Spie Batignolles and Jan De Nul.

This contract, which forms part of the Calais Port 2015 project, is worth approximately €675 million.

The share of Bouygues Construction will be approximately €300 million.

This capital development project includes:

  • the creation of a new 3-kilometer seawall along with a new 100-hectare harbor basin to the north of the current facilities;
  • the construction of three new ferry berths and a roll-on/roll-off berth inside the harbor basin;
  • 4 million cubic meters of marine dredging to constitute the new quays;
  • the development of new cross-Channel traffic reception capacities including 44 hectares of parking facilities and roads as well as roughly twenty operational and reception buildings.

Background

Located in the heart of one of the world’s busiest economic areas, the Port of Calais is the leading French port and the European’s second largest passenger port.

In order to raise its capacity, which is currently insufficient, the Nord – Pas-de-Calais – Picardie region decided to modify its port infrastructure to meet to the new levels maritime traffic, launching a consultation in view of a public service delegation contract for the operation of the ports of Boulogne-sur-Mer and Calais for a period of fifty years.
