Soletanche Bachy Cimas - Soletanche Bachy International – ConConcreto
Soletanche Bachy helped achieve the modernisation by working within the SBCC joint venture (Soletanche Bachy Cimas, Soletanche Bachy International and ConConcreto) and designed and built a 600 m long and 45.6 m wide container terminal, with a 165 m long and 14 m wide of trestle, and a 30 m wide platform, for unloading containers.
Several innovations improved the efficiency and quality of the onshore and offshore works, optimised costs and accelerated the construction process (via prefabricated structures). The project worked closely with the local population.
