AN ADJUSTMENT AND PREPARATION PROJECT FOR THE RAICES (ASTURIAS, SPAIN) QUAY CONSIDERING NEW TRAFFIC

QUAYS

  • Place: Avilés, Asturias (Spain)
  • Scope: Writing of the Preliminary Project and EIA
  • Description:

    The water depth at the Raices Quay is increased from the current 8.7 m to 14 m with a quay advance.
    The dredging is done on category C contaminated material which led to the sheet pile solution being chosen following a study of alternatives.
    Environmental care is of utmost importance in this area as the worksite is located in NATURA 2000 NETWORK zones: ZEC ES1200055 and ZEPA ES0000318.
    The solution planned is summarized as follows:
        •   A complete study of alternatives
        •   The designing of a combined front sheet pile (HZ 1180M D-14/AZ 20-700) and rear sheet pile (AZ 36-700 N).
        •   The confinement of the dredged contaminated material (85,000 m3)
        •   The designing of the load relief slab to reduce the push load on the sheet pile
        •   New paving
        •   Installation work
    Included is a complete Environmental Impact Assessment for the ordinary processing of the Project
