Experiences - Port Engineering Projects
The Construction Project of the works for the Valencia Nautical Club expansion includes:
  • Main breakwater, composed of two alignments:
    • Aalignment 1,366 m long with slope section
    • Alignment 2,478 m long with vertical wall made of reinforced concrete caissons.
  • Lee breakwater: 555 m of slope section
  • Quays: 2.300 m long dock made of submerged concrete
  • Piers: two typologies are planned.
  • Fixed piers: hollow-core slab lain on concrete piles which are laid on rubble-mound bedding layer.
  • Floating pontoons: Pavement design. Services and supply network for vessels

"Cala Baeza" Marina. El Campello (Alicante) Print E-mail
Experiences - Port Engineering Projects

The marina of Cala Baeza is located in the cove Cala Baeza, in the town of El Campello (Alicante).
The planned works are located on the existing site of the port of Cala Baeza, and involve the construction of a marina, making use of the harbour basin formed by the quay and the existing lee breakwater, for boats up to 8, 10 and 12 m long.
The main works are the dredging of the basin (sand and rock) to get a draft in two areas of 2.5 and 3.0 m deep, the repairing and placing of the rubble mound pieces in the breakwaters, the building of docks with anti-reflective Warock blocks, the fixed jetties supported on pilasters, the elements of defense and berthing, port facilities and roads.
The necessary space for a dry marina and for several commercial buildings, an Administration building and a sailing school which will be built in the future is enabled. The works of lifting and launching of the boats in the dry marina will be made by means of a forklift.

Port of Valencia Expansion Print E-mail
Experiences - Port Engineering Projects

The works for the North Extension of Valencia port consist of the execution of a new 3385 m long breakwater, with 3 different types of breakwater section:

  • Rubble mound armour (1120 m).
  • Vertical breakwater (1841 m).
  • Mixed type breakwater made of concrete blocks (366 m).
  • The works are completed with a sloping lee breakwater of approximately 1,095 m long.

The works carried out were the following:

  • Study of the protective mantle of the breakwater located at the esplanade of the port facilities.
  • Overtopping real time alert system to get information of the risk for the working teams located on structures exposed to wave action.
  • Agitation and operation study of the basin of the loading ship pier sited at the facilities esplanade.
  • Geotechnical stability analysis of the vertical breakwater.
  • Study of the validity of the construction process of the berm of the breakwater which protects the facilities esplanade.
  • Study of the stability of the berm and the inner layer of Section I of the breakwaters during the construction process.
  • Design of the loading quay.
  • Design of the reinforcement bars for the circular cells of the caissons in Sections III and IV.
  • Calculation of the minimum height of the filling of caissons cells in sections III and IV and verification of its bedding layer.
  • Design of the crown wall in Section I.
  • Verification of the lee breakwater´s geotechnical stability.
  • Study of the rate of fall of rubble mound pieces discharged from hoppers in the protection layers of the berms which support the lee breakwater´s sections.
  • Analysis of the anchors for tugging the caissons.
  • Wave action on vertical dike due to the overtopping of the caissons during the construction phase.
  • Geotechnical stability analysis of vertical and mixed sections of the lee breakwater.

Construction Project for the Expansion of the Marina "El Perelló" in Sueca (Valencia) Print E-mail
Experiences - Port Engineering Projects

Development of the constructive project for the definition of the works designed to expand the Marina of El Perelló.

302 moorings have been designed for pleasure boats with lengths between 7 and 15 m, and a pontoon of 36 m to locate the fleet which currently operates in this port.

The maximum operational draft is located at a depth of 3.5 m.

The structure of most of the quays consists of a submerged concrete wall. In the harbour mouth, an anti-reflective quay is designed by using concrete blocks Warock type on a concrete submerged base.
Network services to the port and pedestrian areas have been designed for the land part of the Port.
In the margin of the port a wooden footbridge over it has been disposed, creating a new pedestrian area.
The project also includes a study of financial viability.
