The project was awarded by the public entity Puertos Canarios, affiliated with the Canary Government Ministry of Public Works. It is budgeted at €44.6M, of which 85% will be financed by the European Regional Development Fund.


The contract includes construction of a breakwater with a first alignment slope length of 530m with a 45 ton Cubipod layer, and a second alignment longitude of 400m of vertical caisson dike. It also includes the creation of two berths for ferries, associated paving, lighting, bollards, associated electrical works, etc


The Cubipod concept, says OHL, is successfully exploited in other countries such as Denmark or Algeria and is an RDI development for the construction of the principal layer in port slope breakwaters. "It has important advantages with respect to the traditional cube, including greater structural strength and resistance to cobbling and friction with the lower layer.


In the past few years OHL has carried out major civil projects in the Port of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
