Strabag and Archirodon to extend Mauritius port

By Chris Sleight20 November 2014

A joint venture between Austria’s Stabag and Greek harbour specialist Archirodon has won the € 90 million (US$ 115 million) contract to extend the container port at Port Louis, Mauritius.

The project will be carried out in four phases to allow the harbour to remain operational while work is going on. Phase 1 will see a new 244 m berthing quay built on the sea bed, following foundation work to construct a combi-wall of tubular steel piles and sheet piles. The first phase also includes the construction of corresponding concrete structures, quay facilities, and the relocation of three container cranes. This phase is due for completion in mid-2015.

Phases 2 to 4 involve the modernisation of 560 m of existing harbour facilities. These should be completed by December 2016.
