Marine works: Breakwater

  • Place: Santa Cruz de La Palma, La Palma (Spain)
  • Scope: Design Project for Construction
  • Description:

    Description:

    The harbour breakwater is enlarged 100 m so that very large cruise ships could berth safely at the attached quay. The enlarged breakwater with an attached quay are:

          • 27-meter high and 25 meter-wide caissons.
          • Foundation berm water depth of 62 m (LAT).
          • Crown wall reaching level +12,0 m with a wave return parapet.
          • 300 t bollards.
     

    The following tasks were carried out:

          • Geotechnical stability calculations of the breakwater.
          • Caisson structural calculations.
          • Foundation mound protection design.
          • Berthing and mooring forces calculations.
          • Wave overtopping calculation.
          • Crown wall and quay capping beam structural design.
          • Replacing the current bollards of the existing quay.
          • Geotechnical stability check with Level III calculation methods.
