These works will be conducted on 13 spots around the port, removing more than 300,000m³ of sand from these areas.

According to their official announcement, the material – to be removed with a trailing suction hopper dredger – will be used for the enhancement and transformation of agricultural soil or construction activities.

As a measure favoring sustainability, some of the sand from the Puntalete and Salinas sections will be deposited onto the beaches of Sanlúcar de Barrameda, in Bajo de Guía and La Calzada.
