Project Overview:


Alexandria Port is the leading center for the ports of the Arab Republic of Egypt in terms of the volume of commercial traffic, as about 60% of Egypt’s foreign trade is traded through it. The main port area of 22.8 km2.

Our Scope of Works:


Increase the capacity and storage space for Alexandria port by:

 

  1. Construction of a container berth on the northern side of the project site, with a length of 900 m and a depth of 17.5 m.

  2. Construction of a container berth on the western side of the project site, with a length of 520 m and a depth of 17.5 m.

  3. Construction of a container berth on the southern side of the project site, with a length of 425 m and a depth of 14 m.

  4. Construction of a berth on the southern side of the project site for non-contained goods with a length of 505 meters and a depth of 14 meters.

  5. Execution of storage yards at the project site, with Area 550,000 m2.

  6. Construction of an environmental barrier of 2,650 m length to protect the environment of the navigational stream in the port during sand filling works with supplied sand materials.

  7. Backfilling works for the entire area of the project to execute and construct a berth and yards with estimated quantities of about 10 million m3, the backfill will be carried out by using land and marine equipment by Hopper dredger.

  8. Executing the soil improvement works for the entire area of the project for the berth and yards with an area of 473,749 m2, by using Prefabricated Vertical Drains (PVD), Vibro-compaction (VC), and Rapid Impact Compaction (RIC).

  9. After the completion of the soil improvement works, the initiation of construction of the berth with length 2,350 m and 33.9 m in width, which consists of

  • Front diaphragm wall with a width of 1.20 m and a depth of up to 36.3 m and a length of 1,420 m and estimated concrete quantities of 61,800 m3 for the berths with a depth of 17.5 m.

  • Front diaphragm wall with a width of 1 m and a depth of up to 36.3 m and a length of 930 m and estimated concrete quantities of 33,759 m3, for the berths with a depth of 14.50 m.

  • Piles with a diameter of 1.20 m and a depth of up to 36.30 m and 35.00 m with a total length of 42,028 m2 and estimated concrete quantities of 49,000 m3.

  • Barrettes with dimensions of 2.8 x 0.8 m and a depth of up to 36.30 m and 35.00 m with a total length of 42,028 m2 and estimated concrete quantities of 54,235 m3.

Project Duration: Apr. 2020 – Apr. 2022.
