“The innovative blocks make the perfect sustainable solution for the project, as they require less material and can be quickly installed, resulting in a lower CO2 footprint and a stronger breakwater,” said BESIX.

The City of Poti is located at the mouth of Georgia’s largest river – the Rioni.

It has been an important trade centre for centuries. 

In order to improve the function of the port, the existing breakwater needed to be rehabilitated.
