This is the largest floating dock in the world. The dyke displaces 165,000 tons and is built with pre-stressed concrete in all three directions, forming a double helmet. Built on a dry dock in the Bay of Algeciras, the dock was then towed to its final location in Mónaco. The 100 year design life specification was achieved with one of FCC´s in-house innovations; developing a new injection system that has since been patented by the company.
The projects main objective is to expand the “La Condamine” port and serve as protection to the docking area for tourist cruises.
