Monaco’s Portier Cove Land Reclamation Project Underway

Construction works on the Monaco’s Portier Cove land reclamation project are underway with the contractor Bouygues Travaux Publics, a subsidiary of Bouygues Construction, starting dredging operations on the first phase of this six-hectare extension project.

The project includes the construction of an eco-neighborhood primarily consisting of housing (60,000 m²), public facilities, an extension to the Grimaldi Forum, a public car park, a marina with pedestrian wharves, a landscaped park, a seafront promenade and a shaded, planted walkway running the length of the Japanese Garden.

Philippe Bonnave, Chairman and Chief Executive of Bouygues Construction, said: “We are very pleased to have the opportunity to take part in the development of the Principality of Monaco by way of this new land reclamation project which will create six hectares of habitable space, meeting the highest ambitions with respect to sustainable development and environmental protection.

The construction technique to be used for the maritime infrastructure is a fill enclosed by a band of 18 trapezoid reinforced concrete caissons, 26 meters tall and weighing 10,000 tonnes each, equipped with absorption chambers.

These precast units will help reduce breaches by strong swells and protect the exposed areas of the project.

It will take approximately 40 months to complete the project including dredging and transportation of sand from Sicily needed for the creation of new land.

The total value of the maritime infrastructure works is approximately €1 billion.
