The Port Authority of Barcelona has awarded the work of the third phase of the adjacent pier expansion of the city to a JV formed by the OHL affiliate, SATO (37.5%), FCC (37.5%) and COPISA (25%).

The project, with a budget of 40 million euros, consists of the extension towards the south of the adjacent pier 2B, currently under construction.

This way, a 476-meter-long line of pier with a water Depth of 12 meters will be built, which will include an infrastructure for the operations of loading and unloading 60-meter-long ferries.  Specifically, two ships will be able to coincide simultaneously.

In addition, it includes the expansion of the posterior esplanade of Adjacent pier 2B in a longitude of 480 m, finished off by a containment mote perpendicular to the pier.

This action is added to the others performed by OHL in the Port of Barcelona such as the construction of a new breakwater on the south end or the work to remodel the OneOcean Port Vell.
