Type of Project: Port Construction and Marine Infrastructure Works
Duration: Lot 1: July 2004-Nov. 2005
Lot 2: June 2007-Feb. 2008
Client: Société de Réalisation du Port de Tanger-Méditerranée (SRPTM), a JV of Bouygues TP - Saipem sa - Bymaro
Scope of Works: Management and Technical Support
Equipment Supplier: North & South s.a.l.

Scope of Works:

In the process of the construction of the Nouveau Port de Tanger-Méditerranée, and specifically in order to accelerate the construction of its breakwaters and meet the project schedule, SRPTM needed to dump directly in its breakwaters and in specific underwater locations around 2,800,000 tons of rock material.

Having proposed the right equipment and price, North & South was retained for the job. To achieve this purpose, N&S made use of its Self Propelled Split Barges “Al Arz 1” and “Al Arz 2” having a hopper capacity of 1500 m3 each and commissioned its sister company Hydromar to provide management and technical assistance.

To achieve the required advancement rate, the works were carried out on the basis of 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. In 23 months duration, around 2,800,000 tons of rock material (0-500kg) were transported from the loading dock and dumped at the locations specified by SRPTM. The works were completed according to schedule and specifications to the satisfaction of the Client.
