Casablanca Port Project Wrapped Up
- Business & Finance
Vinci, a French concessions and construction company, said that Dumez Maroc (Vinci Construction International Network) has handed over the new fishing port in Casablanca to Morocco’s Agence Nationale des Ports – ANP.
The works included construction of a main breakwater (655m), a secondary breakwater (535m), two quays (323m and 145m), 240m of floating jetties and a significant amount of dredging work.
The main goal of this development scheme is to convert the city’s old fishing port, too small and in poor condition, into a new, larger and more modern site, the company said.
Alongside the boost for Morocco’s fishing industry, the project is set to help redevelop the general port area in order to attract more tourism to the area.
