Realisation of the new port of Tanger Mediterranean

HvS Dredging Support B.V. has won a contract with the multicat “Zwerver II” in Morocco for the realisation of the new port of Tanger Mediterranean. This will be the first container port in the north of Morocco. The position of the port is in the straight of Gibraltar almost opposite of Gibraltar/Bay of Algeciras.
The consortium S.R.P.T.M. was awarded to complete this port. The consortium consists of companies as Saipem s.a., and bouygues France.

The job consists of the support and supply of several pontoons, positioning and placement of caissons for the breakwater, transport of stone barges and anchorhandling.

The consortium has chosen our multicat “Zwerver II” for this project because of her great performance in manoeuvring, very well towing/pushing capacities, powerful bollard pull and her easy anchorhandling capabilities especially in strong currents and winds (Str. Of Gibraltar). For the transport of goods/materials a large deck area was also recommended.
