The modernisation of our quay is well underway. 53 of the latest generation of fenders have been installed all along the west side of the quay. The operation will involve the coverage of the entire of quay with a total of one hundred new fenders that will be added to the existing generation.
The new fenders are of the super cone variety. These are the highest possible standard today, capable of responding to the notable demands of the ships of fourteen thousand TEUs and upward. The fenders are five metres wide and two and a half metres high. The conic structure responds to the demands required and maintains a distance of at least one metre between the ship and the quay. This guarantees the maximum level of safety during the loading and unloading procedure.
