More specifically, the construction of an external breakwater of 4.6 km is envisaged, consisting of the new breakwater pier (North Dam) and the construction of the new Meloria Dam under the breakwater. The old one will be demolished. Internal dams will also be built for 2.3 km, to delimit the new fill tanks (90 hectares) which will be added to the existing ones (70 hectares) and already the subject of a consolidation project. The dredging interventions are aimed at basing of the new works, the deepening of the seabed of the access channel and the construction of the basins and internal docks. In total, 15.7 million cubic meters will be dredged.
