Sea ports account for the gateway to the outside world. The increase of world population, the commodity boom, the globalization of world economy, the growing demand for energy and the spectacular growth of maritime trade are the driving forces behind port construction and expansion. New transport methods and the increase of scale of modern sea going vessels require continuous adaptations of existing ports and the construction of new ones.
Probakat has up-scale experience in port construction involving often a multidisciplinary approach. We conduct preliminary soil investigation, surveys, nautical studies, and environmental assessments which are generally deemed necessary. Dikes, breakwaters, and underwater bunds provide protected berthing. Capital dredging guarantees sufficient depth and width in the access channel, turning basins, docks, and at the toe of quay walls. We use dredged material to beneficially reclaim new land.
