Boskalis to Dredge Port-La-Nouvelle in France

The Occitanie/Pyrénées-Méditerranée Region has awarded a contract for the port expansion of Port-La-Nouvelle, in south-western France, to the consortium formed by Bouygues Travaux Publics (lead company) and Boskalis Nederland BV.

The total value of the project amounts to €199 million, for an overall project cost of €237 million, forming part of the Region’s program for construction and coastline development.

With the dredging completed, the port of Port-La-Nouvelle will provide a draft of 14.5 meters, compared to the 8-meter draft offered by the current port.

The port extension will serve the double purpose of developing existing traffic and accommodating new projects, particular in connection with new energies.

Bouygues Travaux Publics and its partners will be responsible for the Package 1, consisting of the creation of a harbor by extending the current southern seawall (600 meters long), constructing a northern seawall (2,430 meters long) and demolishing an existing seawall.

All the seawalls will be reinforced by an upper layer of Accropodes™ of between 18 and 45 tonnes, pre-manufactured at the site. These very highly resistant concrete blocks are designed to resist the action of waves on the seawalls.

According to the contractor, works on the project are underway now with the completion set for mid-2023.
