New Port of Igoumenitsa, Greece

This is one of the most important transport centres in Greece, dedicated to RoRo traffic, mainly to and from Italy. The project consists of 780 linear meters of dock intended to serve 12 ferries simultaneously. The structure of the pier is formed by 26 reinforced concrete caissons, manufactured in our floating dock of Mar del Teide.

Ground improvement techniques were employed; using gravel columns to counter high seismicity and loose terrain on site as well as backfilling the drawers with pumice to eliminate the resulting thrust.
