A studious summer for Calais Port 2015
No vacation for the works this summer…
On the sea side, the main breakwater progress of 350 meters, thanks to the mass production of the 8m³ Xblocs®, is the most visible advancement. Under water, the more discrete foundation operations for the breakwater are almost complete at the time you read this newsletter.

On the land site, ground improvement operations for the new platforms have already started, allowing progress at a good pace towards the future phase of platforms arrangements.

After this beautiful summer of works progressing, we therefore approach with force and serenity the third autumn of the construction site.
