Experts to analyse improvement projects at Granada ports

Almería, Spain (PortSEurope) November 8, 2018 – A group of experts will hold a first meeting on November 12 to analyze the work in the ports of Garrucha and Carboneras

The technical conference is organized by the Ministry of Development and Housing and the port experts will analyze and discuss the actions taken in the ports for improvement and maintenance. Attendees will also address the different interventions that the Board is developing in the ports of the Andalusian coast, works of singular interest for its size and technical complexity that generate interest in the specialized sectors in these works.

The first scheduled day will focus on ‘Maintenance of port work in Andalusian regional ports’, and it will address the issue from different perspectives, considering issues as varied as quality and environmental sustainability, the incidence of works in the port activity and the special characteristics of the maintenance actions of infrastructure in this type of facilities.

In this meeting speakers will be specialists from the sector such as the professor of the Higher Technical School of Engineering of Roads, Canals and Ports of the University of Granada Miguel Ortega; Juan de Dios Fernández, from the company Aquaterra; and Carlos Estévez, from Dragados y Construcciones, who will analyze in detail two works of special technical interest that are being carried out by this Agency: the repair of the dock of the port of Carboneras and the work of the breakwater of the Port of Garrucha.

In the Port of Carboneras, urgent repair works are being carried out on the quay of the fish market, with an amount of more than €500,000.

In the port of Garrucha, repairs are being made to the breakwater, which will make it possible to replace the loss of parts that the dam has suffered in its main mantle, which causes the waves to overflow the area and endanger the normality of the port activity. The objective is to immediately replace the pieces to the main mantle of the dike and reinforce its condition. These works are quantified at €2.5 million and will be completed within five months.
