Hill International Bags Thessaloniki Contract, Dredging Included
Hill International has signed an agreement with the Thessaloniki Port Authority (THPA) as leader of a consortium including Rogan Associates SA, to provide design and project management services for the planned expansion of the marine works infrastructure of Pier 6.
Being part of the Core Network of the Trans-European Transport Network, the Port of Thessaloniki is the most important port of Northern Greece and a key transportation hub for Southeast Europe.
“The upgrade of the Port of Thessaloniki is an investment of particular significance for the city, but also fostering cross-border synergies in Southeast Europe and promoting regional growth,” said Manolis Sigalas, Hill’s Vice President and Managing Director for Southern Europe.
“This award augments our global port projects portfolio and is reflective of our distinct capabilities in the region. We are truly honored and, together with our partners, we look forward to working hard with all stakeholders involved for the project’s successful delivery.”
The project involves:
- construction of one new additional quay wall with a minimum continuous length of 440 meters, out of which at least 400 meters provide a minimum draught of -17.60 meters MSL (Mean Sea Level);
- construction of additional yard area;
- construction of all complementary infrastructure works needed for the full operation of both the new quay wall and the corresponding yard, including dredging of navigation channel and ship maneuvering area at a minimum water depth of -17.60 m MSL;
- pavements at the yard area;
- utilities networks.
According to their official announcement, the overall duration of the project is 46 months and services to be provided by the consortium include the update and preparation of the detailed design, management of the construction procurement tender, and project management/supervision during construction.
