Isla Verde mole delves deep

THE first blocks of a two kilometre detached mole to protect new port installations in Algeciras were put in place in the first weeks of March.They were constructed on site and sunk into position in deep water opposite a new area of reclaimed land known as Isla Verde Exterior, the port's key expansion project.Built at a cost of €124m ($166m) by a joint venture between leading Spanish construction companies Acciona, Dragados and Drace, the mole will sit in water varying from 28 metres to 43 metres in depth. Each block is the equivalent in height of a 12-storey building and requires 9,500 cu m of concrete and 1m kg of steel for its construction.It takes a 300-strong workforce 13 days to build each block.
