Allocation of the enlargement of Puerto del Rosario (Fuerteventura)
The Port Authority of Las Palmas has allocated Rover Group, in Joint Venture with the company Satocan, the construction of a new breakwater in Puerto del Rosario (Fuerteventura) for 27.5 million euros and with an execution period of 17 months.
The new breakwater of Puerto del Rosario will reach a depth of up to 19 metres and will, at the same time, act as a protective shelter for the port against swells coming from the east and as a berthing facility on the west side of the port. It will start from the southern part of the outer edge of the current platform of the port and will present two alignments: an initial one of 100 metres in length, and another, overlapping the previous one, of 375.2 metres.
Rover Maritime, the Rover Group's maritime infrastructure company, is currently working on the enlargement of the Port of Bilbao, where a new 250 metre long vertical caisson quay with a surface area of 50,000m2 is being built, developed under the shelter of the existing dock and with a budget of 33.1 million euros. Likewise, it recently concluded the construction of the new breakwaters at the emblematic Port of Gdansk in Poland, the third largest port in terms of cargo movement in the Baltic Sea, a project that has entailed an investment of 134 million euros.
