SATO to Build Port of Arrecife New Seawall

OHL, through its specialized subsidiary SATO, has obtained a new contract for the construction of a new sea wall in the Port of Arrecife in Lanzarote, Spain.

In particular, the company was awarded the €8.1 million contract for the construction of the southern outer sea wall of Naos in the Port of Arrecife.

The project, granted by the Port Authority of Las Palmas, includes the expansion of the cruise wharf with the construction of a 322m long dike that, in addition, will allow improving port operations during the southern storms.

This new dike will be formed by two sections differentiated according to their typology. Section I, about 205 m long, will consist of a revetment breakwater whose trunk will be formed by a layer of 6-ton Cubipods. Section II, on the other hand, will consist of a vertical dam of 118 m in length manufactured with four reinforced concrete caissons.

The project is not first-of-its-kind for OHL, the company’s experience in the use of Cubipod has been outstanding.

On the international level, the Cubipod technique has been used in the breakwater of the port of Hamstholm, Denmark, and in the Algiers Marina, Algeria.

In Spain, they have been placed in the dike of San Andrés, in the port of Malaga, in the first two phases of the out sea wall at the port of Langosteira (A Coruña) and in the outer sea wall of the Sphinx Basin (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria).
